I love the trim. Is the trim travertine? If so what brand?

Yes, it is travertine. Noce is the color, not sure on the brand as this was over 10 years ago. Most places that sell travertine and accents will have something similar I'm sure. Good luck.

We built this house years ago, I simply don't remember the brand name of the tile. It is real travertine, called "Noce" travertine. I know it's still around as we still use it, but now buy it from Encore Flooring and More in Springdale, AR.

I would ask your tile supplier and your tile installer for advice here. I've only had 3 requests for steam showers in all my homes over the years and they were all in real stone, which what travertine is, so they had to be sealed. I would recommend sealing the stone at least every 3 years. I know most sealers state it lasts longer, but better to be safe and with hot trapped steam things will wear down a bit faster than normal.

Placement depends on the shower design, but this one is under the seat. This allows us to have an access panel to it for repairs if needed. There is a small door just outside the shower door to the right.

My glass guys at Binswinger Glass in Fayetteville, Arkansas made this. Any glass company should be able to make it for you.

I simply don't remember the exact name and the company that sold us the tile is no longer in business. This was years and years ago, but it was something simple like "clay" or "beige". Wish I could help more, sorry.

How do you keep the steam shower free from mold/mildew? - I noticed the fan you have installed in the ceiling. We have a steam shower and I find myself having to clean the travertine tiles/grout so often and we leave the shower door open 24/7. Is the fan the only thing you need to keep a steam shower free from mold/mildew?

To protect against mold the upper window tilts out allowing the steam to escape after use. That is why we installed a second fan right outside the shower door.

You will need air flow, fan won't be enough to dry out the space. As suggested above the door transom is a good idea and leaving it open will help create the air flow.

I've had clients use everything from gold, to tan, to even blue. It's really up to you. I prefer something in the tan family of colors myself, "camel back" from Benjamin Moore comes to mind.

I have these tiles in my shower. I am ripping them out because they are forever becoming moldy and now they just feel dirty to me. I might consider stone again, but never a tumbled stone like these because the pores are so large they become infested with mold inside the stone when the sealer wears. Once that happens, they never seem clean again. I recommend using a stone with a slicker surface.
