Black tiles can be great because they give a reflective surface (refplection pond look) during the day but can be lit up with coloured lights at night (see attached)

Or for a twist on the matt black finish you could look at a glass blend - this pool is finished with Trend 'Brillante 260' blend tiles

each 36" fixture has a 21w T-5 fluor. lamp. This was plenty of light at the vanity mirror location, but depending on the size of your "small" bathroom you might consider at least another overhead fixture that would provide general ambient lighting. In this bath we used 3 cube wall fluor. sconces to provide general illumination because of size (length) of room a well as its double duty as a laundry space.

Boyd's fixture wattage are dependent on the length of fixture you choose, see

Classic Clawfoot Tubs
By the way, this style is called a traditional rolled rim clawfoot tub. (We carry it as well.) The exterior of the tub comes in white, but can be painted with any latex interior house paint.

Hi, as mentioned before the tub exterior can be painted to any color you want. Take a look at this tubwith oil rubbed bronze finish feet: and maybe this Clawfoot Tub faucet and hardware to match:

If I understand correctly your bathroom must be about 3' wider than one in photo, If so I don't see why you could not have a tempered glass partition between tub and shower, you would have to install a floor drain and make sure bath floor was fully water proofed and re-sloped towards new drain

these were front loading 27" washer and dryer by Miele, but just about any front loading machines can be built-in under a counter, the smaller they are the easier to integrate with the cabinetry. The most difficult part is concealing the washer drain and water supply shut off valve box. In this case we had a small cutout-lift off panel in back portion of the Caesarstone counter.

The outside of the tub was pretty dinged up... even before it was removed from the original bathroom. Our clients took it upon themselves to restore it; they prepped it, metal primed the exterior, and finished with multiple coats of flat black finish paint

The main floor bath and laundry features the original clawfoot tub in the midst of modern finishes and conveniences.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to How to Get a Claw-Foot Tub for Your Bathroom
Scraping and sanding option: If your tub exterior just needs a facelift, this is something you can easily do on your own, especially if you know that the paint on the tub isn’t lead based. (An antique tub may have lead-based paint on the older layers. In this case it’s best to have it sandblasted by a professional.) If it’s a newer paint job and you’re going for a color change, use a stiff brush and sandpaper to rough up the surface. Be sure to wear a mask. Christian Daur of ChrDauer Architects says the tub shown here had been painted over the years and his client took it upon herself to scrape, prep and paint with flat black enamel paint. “She is a very talented craftsperson, so there were very few visible brush marks,” he says. Luckily, the original brass spout and faucet were in good shape and just needed new washers. “The entire job probably cost $50 in materials and a few days of time,” he says.
