Have you tried the search engine, putting in the phrase "ming green marble"? There were three of us who all used the same basketweave floor with ming; a few others, I think, have used a different pattern with similar colors. A search should turn up pics for you.

Suzanne, you should start your own thread with this bathroom! I love the mosaic and the herringbone is centered so nicely around it. Great use of grab bars for towel bars. I have that planned for my remodel too. Makes so much sense to me.

I'll tell people I have no favorite color, if asked; I love them all. But I always follow that with "...but if I had to choose it would be green".

What a wonderful idea for a towel bar. I dislike those little skinny things and have been searching forever for a more substantial one.

Your bathroom is gorgeous.

Really nice, Suzanne! I have to agree with enduring--your bathroom deserves its own thread. Is the grab bar from Gatco?

Thank you!

The big grab bar is from the Toto Soiree collection. The little one inside the shower is from Smedbo.

Yes, the floor is a carrera and ming marble mosaic. We considered basketweave, but I'm glad we went with the pinwheel pattern. (Ironically our original prewar yellow and black bathroom had a pinwheel pattern on the floor too - but this is much prettier!)

We've kind of decided not to use sealer on it in the future, because our contractor warns that it will turn the grout yellow. Any thoughts on that?

The big surprise for me - going with ming green - is that the greens are so lively and varied, especially on the big tiles.
