Textured panel behind tub. A freestanding bath tub is centered in front of a floor-to-ceiling panel of matchstick stone mosaic tile. This earthy textural backdrop contrasts with the smooth metallic finish of the tub and wall tile, giving it the appearance of a sheet of water pouring down.
The key is orienting the tile vertically to suggest a downward movement. Install a wall mount waterfall tub faucet and presto, you have added the sound of falling water.
