Getting marble counter and floor tile to work together
I have no confidence when it comes to picking patterns that will work together. When in doubt, I go with solids. That's where I need your help.
Today I put a hold on a carrara slab for my hall bath vanity. Actually half a slab (upper half):
I couldn't get an actual piece of my slab, since I haven't paid for it yet, but they gave me a carrara tile that's very similar to the movement and patterning in mine. It's sitting between the two tiles I'm considering for my floor. Both tiles are available in 12x12 and the darker one also in 24x12.
I think I prefer the lighter tile, without really being able to explain why. I'm wondering if the carrara and it will get along or whether there's too much pattern between them. The floor and carrara will be on parallel planes, approx. 36" apart. I like both tiles.
I decided to go with white tile in the shower instead of gray, and my vanity will be a warm mid-brown stained alder, a little lighter than and not as red as mahogany.
