Which tile you like better for the shower and tub deck walls ? The tub deck and vanity are the white calacata . The one on the right is more glossy .

If they both have striations, I would go with a glossy slightly off white subway tile (ceramic) in the same larger size. Calacatta is usually white, but it's not stark white; there's usually a slight off white and not in the gray direction. I still think you may end up with too many lines and textures with the two above. But that's just me. I think you're right to be leaning towards a solid.

Thank you KevinMP for your vote. My calacata is starck white . I found it only in one marble store . It looks nice next to the white of these two tiles . I prefer the glossy one because its glossiness is like shellfish. So it doesn't look like real solid white . I think in the shower area it will look like water cascading through it .
