Although I do not know the specification of this tile, Rittenhouse Square from Dal Tile is a great line of affordable subway tile in dozens of colors. Some of which come with a bevel. Other great sources to look for classic subway tiles are Ann Sacks and Walker Zanger.

As Lighting are details brought in by the Interior Designer I apologize as I will not be able to help you with this search as it is out of our scope of work. Good Luck and Happy Houzzing!

You may find a similar light fixture from Troy Lighting, Corbett, Shades of Light, or Murray Feiss. Higher end sources would be Urban Electric, Circa Lighting, Hubbardton Forge, and Dennis and Leen.

I'm not a fan of wall quote decals, but I've seen them look good and also look bad. Almost any style can look good if within the style of the entire room. The right scale, color, placement, the actual quote, etc. If you want quote decals - go for it.

For a slightly more sophisticated version, you could have it laser cut out of steel as well! It's not expensive and the steel would look amazing in a boy's room! Do a search for plasma cutting for someone who could do this for you.

I enjoy the clean and modern style of A's cabinet doors but I feel like there is still just... a bit too much there. A lot of wood without much to break it up makes it overwhelming, as others here have said.

I don't know of any manufacturer that makes a door like this "off the shelf". It looks to me like a standard flush door with some sort of cladding applied, either steel or aluminum. We are beginning work on a project that will require doors almost exactly like this. Our solution is to clad the door face in an environmentally friendly composite material and apply an automotive paint finish. This project is a ways off, but I'm sure I will post pictures of the finished product. Feel free to click on our logo at left or visit www.edencoast.com to find out more about what we do. Thank you!

Are you looking for the dimensions of the tub too? We finished this job a few years back and this tub was purchased from the owners so we would not have that information at this time. Please let us know if you are looking for the dimensions of the tub or the bathroom itself. Thank you and Happy HOUZZING!!
