The homeowner got a little overzealous when it came to tile inside, but the outdoor shower benefitted. "I fell in love with too many types of tile, so the tile designer tried to work them all into the design — it looked pretty darn good on paper, but when the tile guy started installing the tiles, the design was very muddled and really did not work at all," she explains.
"After losing sleep over it, I decided we needed to rip out some of the tile he’d already installed and just go with a simpler design. The silver lining was that we ended up salvaging some of the already purchased, unused tile by installing it in the outside shower area, which turned out more elegant than we were planning. It was a lovely way to use the materials."
