We just paid a small fortune
to have bathroom tile installed at the Dutch colonial.
Methinks it was money well-spent. What say ye?
Let’s begin upstairs + then work our way back down again.
My tile design scheme: classic, timeless
+ making it look like they are original to the house.
I am especially pleased with my design for the window surround,
because it was a big challenge to keep things looking original.
We used inexpensive chair rail or cap tiles, in stock at Home Depot.
The subways were bought there at the same time.
Now let’s head back downstairs.
First up, our powder room:
May I just say that I’ve never loved anything more?
I call these 2″ tiles hexagons, or “hexies”,
but they’re also known as honeycombs.
And does it go without saying that this room has to be gray,
to complement all the gray in the marble?
I’m not afraid to choose something dark-ish,
since the floor is so light.
Meanwhile, check out this masterpiece:
That picture frame molding might be too much troublesome for G.O.
I dunno, but stay tuned.

Meanwhile, here’s our quality control officer, Chloe, giving that floor the once-over:
Now let’s have a look-see at the downstairs main bath:
I’ve always loved this kind of tile, which I refer to as “flowers”.
We searched + searched at tile retailers, but had no luck.
We ended up ordering it from Amazon.
Back to our room:
As you can see, this tub’s been tricked out just like the one upstairs.
And now, because I’ve been keeping so “bizzy”,
please allow me to share a few snapshots of my recent projects:
As always, thanks for viewing!
It means a lot!
