Where can I find this tile in Toronto or GTA? - I love how well it works with the unpainted wood trim. I am having trouble finding the right tile for my foyer - we have a lot of old oak trim in the house that my better half won't let me paint!!

It's Missoni and was a leftover remnant from the stair runner.

Good luck!

Wainscoting in mudroom - how wide are the buttons and approx how wide is the top molding? - Love the look. Was going to do bead board but this looks more sophisticated. Trying to replicate so any measure,ends that you can share would be great. The width of the buttons, distance between battons, height of top molding. Any other words of advice? Thanks and great job!!!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Interior Trim: 8 Must-Know Elements
3. Wainscot. While the space between the chair rail and baseboard can be finished as the rest of the wall (painted or wallpapered), many times the area is paneled. The options for the wainscot are many, including simple wood panels, beadboard, raised panels and horizontal wood paneling. And while the finish of the wainscoting can match the wood trim, it doesn't have to. For example, a painted wood baseboard and wainscot of simple, recessed panels works well with the stained wood window and door trim.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to How to Size Interior Trim for a Finished Look
The rule of thirds. Installing a chair rail, with or without wainscoting, will divide the vertical plane — the walls — into multiple areas. If you want to make the room feel taller, place the chair rail one third of the way up from the floor.
