    Oooh, okay thanks!!!! What shade of gray again?? It's def a lighter gray? Or just amazing photography lol - it looks white!!!

    Hi again Group3!!

    I have decided on the tile, and I really do like the glossy better!

    One last plea for help lol...I will have the white hex tiles on the floor, my vanity, and white v-groove paneling on the wall (vertical), a white tub...what kind of tiles would you recommend in the shower walls? I was thinking white subway tiles...but is there something more country/farmhouse that would suit the bathroom better? I am not sure if white subway tiles are over-used, or too modern for that environment?

    Thanks again, so very much for your professional opinion! :)

    Eloise Pickard at Sandy Springs Galleries, (770) 324-2557, makes them from found pieces. All custom, all wonderful.

    I don't have the color selections anymore, but I like using different shades of white. Experiment! We like to try out different combinations by painting enough of an area of the actual room... until you put a color on the wall, you're just guessing.

    are these tiles 1 inch or 3 inch

    Group3

    1 inch... it's what I'd expect to see in my grandparents' house and therefore (in my mind) acceptable for a new old house. Not fancy, nothing special but just right. In my experience, not too many people can resist the temptation to "improve" it... thereby messing it up. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I currently have white tiles on my bathroom floor with white grout. I will not choose white grout for my floors ever again- I know it looks pretty, but it is very, very difficult to clean, and is a dirty, brownish gray color most of the time. I am building a new home right now, and am using small white tiles again, but with black grout this time.

    I agree with the dark grout, especially on the floor.

    Do you recall if this is their standard white 0100 or the "arctic" white from Dal Tile?

    I don't recall. I do remember that the plumbing fixtures are standard white and we matched that.

    What is the brand and make of the matte hex floor tile? I can't find the right one for this vintage clean look....... What grout color as well on floor?
  • PRO
    Group3
    I don't have the specs on this anymore, but it wasn't an expensive hex tile by any means. Same goes for the grout, we just selected a dark grey grout from the tile sub-contractors samples on site.

    I appreciate your insight. I did, one time, take a photograph to the paint store and asked them to match the paint color. They did an excellent job and my daughter's room turned out just as I envisioned. Having said that, I do plan on getting a sample size to test the color in the room. And if it might save the paint store some guess work, I would love to know the color of this bathroom. Thank you!

    I think this is Benjamin Moore's "Atrium White" in a semi-gloss enamel finish, but you might also look at B. Moore's "China White" too.

    I don't have the selection on this anymore but I use dornbracht.com. Vandykes.com is a less expensive alternative.

    Personally, I specify eggshell finish for baths... and frequently for all the walls in a house, because I like the durability and the very slight sheen. Painters generally hate it because it shows imperfections in the wall and it can't be touched up as easily as flat finish paint. In new construction, I use water resistant gypsum board too. Especially when repainting, it is important to get the advice of an expert to ensure that you prepare the existing surface properly. Stores that well only paint and painting supplies generally are good sources of advice, big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot are generally not.

    Did you use matt tiles for floor and gloss for wall? Or both are matt? Thanks.

    I don't have a record of it. I was in my favorite plumbing showroom a couple of weeks ago and looking for something very much like this. I thought that the current choices weren't as subtle as this and I'm still looking for the "right" faucet, too.
  • anastaciaphippen

    Looks like Restoration Hardware, Lefroy Brooks collection or Grafton Collection.

    It's a 1 inch hex with a medium gray grout. Many of the little hex tiles in the 1st go-round weren't exactly flat and the entire floor had to be re-done. We were told that "inexpensive" tiles (and these were certainly inexpensive) aren't manufactured to close tolerances.... but they did replace them at no cost to our client.

    Pratt and Larson Ceramic also has 1" hexagon tile and is available to order in any of our over 300 colors. We can also create custom blends for your project.

    It's been a while, but I think this came from Florida Tile. I agree that the "flatter" hex looks more historic... it's also less expensive! Thanks for noticing!!!

    The wall in that area is built out 6 inches and the top is tile too. With pedestal sinks extra counter space is always handy.

    I don't have the formula, it was a custom mix to look like old stained mahogany. It is black with a bit of purple and brown mixed in.

    We had them made by a local millwork company. They're false louvers so there's no lack of privacy. The paint is black with a touch of red and blue in it. We played with it until we got something that looked like very darkly stained mahogany.

    Except for the doors and the decorative light fixtures, everything in the house is off-the-shelf.

    I've found this question WAY later than I should have. Sorry for failing to answer... I don't have that information any longer. I was looking for faucets not to long ago and although these were pretty common in 2006, they don't seem to be available any longer.

Laura Gaskill added this to Outfit a Cottage-Style Remodel, Top to BottomMar 29, 2013

For a charming cottage-style bath, choose fixtures and finishes with vintage flair. A pedestal sink, a claw-foot tub and classic subway tile are trendproof.

Tile wainscoting is perfect for bathrooms because of the tight seam created.

Rachel Grace added this to How to Mix Metal Finishes in the BathroomAug 16, 2012

I spy three distinct metal finishes in this traditional South Carolina bathroom: blackened-bronze wall lights, a brushed stainless steel trash receptacle and bright nickel plumbing fixtures.

Lisa Frederick added this to White Bathrooms: Fair Game for Every Design StyleMay 24, 2012

From the subway tile to the vintage-style fixtures and pedestal sink, this bath would fit right in with a cottage interior. Beadboard wainscoting would be another ideal choice.
