Would the color discrepancy of this shower floor and wall bug you

Posted by threeapples (My Page) on

I had a heck of a time finding wall and ceiling tile to match the color of the floor tile for our shower and settled on this. Am I nuts for noticing the difference and having it bug me? I'm hoping once the shower system and a teak bench are in there it won't be as obvious?

It doesn't bother me at all...I actually like how the floor tile looks almost like it's already under water.

But my taste is...um...eclectic.

I love the walls AND the floor, care to share the names of the tiles?

Very very pretty! Floor looks great with walls IMO

Thanks, everyone! :). The floor is from oracle stone and tile, marble hex tiles (carrera 2"), walls are Mexican White from a local stone yard.

It looks beautiful in the pics. They aren't an exact match but all the colors coordinate between the two elements.

Not only does it not bug me, I think it looks fantastic! I love the shade variations in both tiles and I think they work well together.

Isn't this the time you hated before (when it was laid on the floor)? I think it looks great.

lol..it's the patterns that are tricking you...adding a small transition tile (like plain pencil-type) might ease it...or add a row of the pebble tile at the top of the large....

I meant tile, not time. Sorry about that.

It looks to me like there are a lot of shared colors in the hex and wall tile. I think it is coming together beautifully. I am looking forward to your finished project :)

Kevin, the tile on the floor has lots of yellow in it. This one is nice.
It does seem to be coming together nicely, if we could just figure out what is wrong with the floor (posted about this yesterday), all would be great.

I recently watched a webisode where the designer mixed a cream marble with a white/grey marble for a bathroom floor(linked below). I think your shower is beautiful.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sarah Richardson webisode
