Pretty Over Practical

After months of searching for tile for our defunct powder room I've finally made my choice! After receiving estimates from a few general contractors to finish the whole room I've decided to start with a tile guy and go from there instead. For a while there I thought I was going to go with beveled subway tile & trim from the Soho line from Walker Zanger with a black & white basket weave ceramic for the floor.

After visiting yet another tile showroom this evening I think I've found a perfect combination:


white crackle 3x6 tile for walls


white Carrara 1x3 Herringbone for floor

White crackle finish instead of smooth beveled tile & white marble (marble!) instead of ceramic black & white mosaic?
There I go again choosing pretty over practical. :)
