Masterbath room carrara tile anxiety please help!

I am starting to think about a masterbath remodel. White white cabinets would be the first thing with chrome faucets.
I will need 150 square feet of floor tile, 70 square feet for the shower and 14 square feet for the shower base and another 25 square feet behind a soaking tub (still deciding between pedestal or claw foot tub but that's another story)
If I do a marble subway on the floor what size? I don't like the biggest tiles in a subway although 3X6 or the next size up might be okay. How would herringbone look? Will hezagon 2X2 be too busy? Will all of this look outdated in a few years? And finally, as long as the marble is sealed will it stay unstained? How often will it need to be sealed (I have been told every 2 years to every 6 months). Is it a really bad idea for a shower? Would it look odd to have porceline in the shower and carrara everywhere else? I have been thinking honed marble for the floors and a polished bianco carrara for the counterops. If anyone has pictures, that would be wonderful! Thanks so much everyone!

Go to, select bathrooms and type in the search box whatever marble or tile you are considering. You will find hundreds of photos that should give you lots of great visuals and ideas. It sure helped me.
