I ordered them from White Shell 1" x 1" White Shell Series Glossy Exotic Mosaic Tile. Not sure if they ship to Canada.

Love the tile in here, so bright and provides great depth! Our Reni White Double Vanity would look fantastic in here:

These are your basic white 3 x 6 subway tile (except the top row, they are the bullnose version and slightly narrower.) The grout is standard white, nothing custom or "fancy." That's the beauty of subway! You can use ready made materials and achieve a high end look.

I love this design! So simple and beautiful. The use of white mother of pearl tiles with white subway tile is brilliant and sophisticated.
