Help with matching tiles for bath please... pic heavy

remodelflaMarch 20, 2013

I've been on a sample collecting binge for my master bath remodel. A postage stamp sized bathroom. One of the samples that has stood out I'm thinking for accents and maybe the long wall in the shower. Actually, I can't decide if I think it's awesome or G-d awful... so feel free to speak out about it. Got it from an ebay supplier:

I have had a hard time finding floor and field tile to go with it. And trust me... I've gotten multiple samples. Loved the feel of limestone... awful on my "field tests". Have a ming green that might work but I think it's too much variation between the inclusion and multiple colors in the stone. So... I have DH hold up the tile under my range hood light to get a good pic this morning and realize that my backsplash is a perfect match. Who woulda thunk? I have 2 boxes (about 13 sq. ft) left over but I'm not sure I want the exact same tile. I just ordered 6 more samples, one of my backsplash but in a 2x16. Maybe you all can help me with some feedback?
I'm re-doing an old dry sink to use as my vanity. Here are the doors and the dresser (from my bedroom) is the color I'm going to paint it.

My sink that'll fit perfectly on top

Here are the tile samples I ordered to go with this possible accent choice. I'll also include my alternative accent tile choice. Would love your input.
Ming green for field:

1. My backsplash but in 2x16 (you can see it in the 1st photo)
2. Similar tile but in blue gray in 4x12

Next is floor tile ideas
3.Jerussalem gold with blue

That one and the next two would be if I went with the blue gray glass field (if it matches the mosaic)

And this as a possible floor if I go with the 2x16 greenish field:

And lastly here is a crushed roman glass accent that I also like in lieu of the first colorful one. DH prefers the other but likes this too.

I know it's alot of stuff... I gotta go re-read this myself.

I definitely don't like the glass type accent tile in the 1st picture. The ming green tile looks interesting for the field tile. For the floor tile I would look at getting bigger tile 12x12's it will make the bathroom look bigger.

I'm confused. Don't know what tile you're talking about when you say you have 13'sq ft left over.
Do not like the tile in your hand at all. in my monitor it looks really pastel and reminds me of 80's colors and the pink looks flesh tone. Also don't think it goes with any of the other tiles.
IMO not every tile on the wall and floors should be a standout in pattern, especially if the bathroom is really "postage size".
Can you please show us a pic of the room so we can get an idea of the space? Do love the sink though.

Apparently, I've been confusing you... sorry! Good insight on the "vibe" of that tile. There's something about it that has been keeping me from loving it. The only real pattern would be the accent tile... first or last picture as example. The field would be a solid color subway, be it glass or ceramic. Right now I'm looking at glass cause the ceramics I like are too expensive and I want a non maintance item so have ruled out too much marble I think. So I included pics of the soft green and soft blue.

I'll try and get pics but it's so small you can't stand there and get it all in. It's 8x4 I think... no bigger. The vanity will be narrow depth, about 18" if I recall and the sink is that exact same depth.

I should probably wait till my ideas are more streamlined so I can be clearer. Right now I'm all over the place but it is kinda fun to have a project to think about.
