Thanks very much for your reply. I'm undecided as to whether we should seal it or let it gray, also love the look of the grey. Thanks again. Michèle

Widner Product Finishing
I use a combination of two german products, called Fuhr and Klumpp. Fuhr is the primer and then I buff on an oil to enhance the sheen. I have never had anything other than remarkable results. Tongue oil, linseed oil, rosewood oil always turn blotchy over time, which requires continual maintenance at a level not required with the other products I use. It still calls for maintenance, but it can be spot checked since the sealer I use does not bond to itself.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The entire tub room is lined and waterproof. Ipe wood covers the walls and floor, while the ceiling is marine plywood. Ipe was also used on the outdoor deck to create an indoor-outdoor feel. A staircase from the deck leads down to the beach, so this is a perfect spot for rinsing off on the way back into the house.Tub: Nouveau, Hastings Tile & Bath
Bring nature in. As with workspaces, kitchens and bathrooms can become so utilitarian that they feel cold and impersonal. Warm things up with small potted plants in the bath (ferns do well in this humid space) and herbs in the kitchen, along with rustic woods and hand-thrown pottery.
