Cap on top of 3x6 subway tiles - Hi, I love your bathroom. My wife and I are redoing our master in a similar style. Thank you for your photos and comments they have helped us so much. The qauestion I have is about the cap on top of the 3x6 subway tiles. Do you know what that style/name & size of those tiles are? Thanks.

Aaron, I'm so sorry for not having gotten back to you about this sooner. I'm afraid I missed your comments when they first came in. I thank you for your compliments, and I hope that your project has gone well. I believe the tile cap was by Daltile... the Simple Elegance line of tile accents, and the one that we used was "Melody". Here's a link below:

Sorry once again for the delayed response.

Good luck!

Color of Toto toilet that matches Restoration Hardware sink? - Hello - I am doing a bathroom very similar to this one and am wondering which color white (Cotton or Colonial?) you went with for the Toto toilet to match the Restoration Hardware sink (I'm also using a RH sink). Thank you!

These subway tiles are indeed Arctic White and they are semigloss finished... (the floor tile is matte finish).

I'm afraid I can't offer any information on the light fixtures. They were the original fixtures that we salvaged for re-use. I imagine you can find something similar online. There are many manufacturers who are creating vintage-style fixtures.

I'm afraid I don't recall who the vendor is... the home owner actually found them online. I do have to warn you though, there were 3-4 different colors of "white" and there was no way to confirm the color would match the "artic white" wall tile. In the end, we guessed wrong the first time and had to send it back and try again. We got it right the second time around, though if you look at it carefully (not in the picture, but in person), you can discern a slight variation in color between the t.p. holder and the wall tile. Here's a link to a similar product... you can look online and see what else you might find.

This is so much like my bathroom in my American Four Square home in Baltimore. The mirror, the tile the floor, the sink even the window and wood trim were original to the home and looked very much like this. I loved it then and I love this design now. I just wish I had used that beautiful paint color. Very nice choice!

I agree... it's a beautiful color. Just remember, of all the things one does to a bathroom, paint is the simplest to change... if you decide you chose the wrong color, it's a far easier fix than if you had selected the wrong sink. Thanks again for the feedback!
