Traditional/Contemporary Travertine Bathroom

I love how one can take a singular material and use it in different applications in the same space. It provides texture and interest. That's what our clients wanted to for this master bathroom - travertine, travertine, travertine. And that's what they got.
It's also amazing what we can do with glass these days, like how the shower stall and bathtub can be joined but not feel separate. Gorgeous.

I wish I had a specific answer for you on this one. My job was to select the tiles and the general design of their layout, but I never had any dimensions of the actual space. Sorry!

Sorry I don't have a specific answer for you. The clients picked the paint color after I did all of the tile work.

Kirstin, Thank you for the prompt reply! Do you know the size of the mosaic on the floor as well as the size used on the walls of the shower. Is the same tile used for the floor? I have been looking at the travertines and they are all beige! do you know the specific colors and name/manufacture used in each location? Thanks,
Tracey

Hi, again.
So I dug out the file for this project and actually have to correct something I said. Part of the problem is that this project was done in 2006 and many of the tiles and/or distributors I used then are no longer around, but here are the details anyways:

Shower walls & ceiling - Lappato Abano porcelain tile (distributor I used has gone out of business, but perhaps an internet search might turn up another source). the tile looked very much like travertine but was smooth in texture.

Shower Floor - The central area and stripe around the outside was a 2x2 travertine mosaic in various shades. The white stripe in between those two is Botticino marble, which is very common.

Accent Tile on shower wall - Again, a travertine mosaic border with varying colors.

As far as the travertine colors go, look for "Durango" as the creamy color and "Noce" as the more brown color and you might have some success.

Hope that helps a little bit.

All of the tile in the entire bathroom is honed travertine, so it's a matte finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

TravertineThe biggest issue people have with cleaning and maintaining a travertine shower is soap scum. Soap scum can damage tiles and ruin the look of a travertine shower. Also, hard water deposits can also start to accumulate in a travertine shower. "A travertine-tiled shower is a constantly wet surface, so upon installation, I strongly urge people to apply the best sealer that money can buy to protect their travertine shower," says Lichlyter. For tough stains: Lichlyter recommends zero-pH cleaners, which are readily available in home improvement stores. Stay away from: "Commercial cleaners that smell good but have petroleum in the ingredients," says Lichlyter. "Petroleum sits on tile grout and causes residue and a dirty-looking appearance." Also avoid acidic substances like vinegar as well as abrasive cleaners and dish soap containing citrus oil.
