Let's Talk Tiles
No matter where we start our search for tiles, we usually always end up at Saltillo. They consistently have styles of tiles I don't see anywhere else. Its no wonder that they are Sarah Richardson's go-to-place for tile too. Their marble mosaics make me swoon.
See? Delicious. I was loving these ming green ones in particular. Great patterns. Hmm, maybe for the laundry room?
We're on the hunt for tile for the laundry room and the basement bathroom. I've settled on this striated tile for the floors in both rooms. Its long been a favourite - neutral, a bit of an organic feel - and it will feel incredible with the electric floor heating, courtesy of Nuheat. We put in-floor heating in our bathroom upstairs, and seriously, it is was the best decision ever. Once you go heated floors, there's no going back. Trust me on this.
The shower walls, though, are giving me a bit of a headache. We're going to do subway tile for part of it, but we need to kick it up with something else. Maybe an accent band or an accent wall in a mixed glass and marble mosaic? But that look has been done so many times before. I'm getting a little tired of the accent band... but what else should we do?
These Oriental White marble mini tiles in a grid pattern were calling to me. Such an unusual shape and size.
And these coloured subway tiles keep catching my eye. I'm digging the top right sagey green one. The tiles have a milky kind of look and feel very retro. I quite like how they've styled the grey tiles too, with the 1/2 round pencil tile and mix of sizes. Its a great way to add some pizzazz when you're working with basic tiles.
So many choices! We didn't pick anything up on this trip, but you can bet we'll be back to the tile store soon.
