Thanks so much. We're by the ocean and plan to go with white cedar. What color paint did you use on the trim?

Need advice re grout color for almost black tile floor - Does anyone have experience with charcoal grout? We have almost black tile and think grout should be dark too in order to maintain a clean, contemporary look. Contractor is advising against it because he believes it will show every bit of dust. To me lighter grout provides too much contrast. Walls in room will be lighter gray. Sorry no pix!

You instincts are right. Darker tile should have darker grout.

Definitely go with darker grout. I did two bathrooms in Dal Tile Fabrique Noir Linen and used a dark grout (and grey walls). They look gorgeous. I would be wary of any other design advice your contractor gives you as he has missed the mark on an easy question.
