Anyway, in the more modern bathrooms of my mother-in-law and best friend (whose tile looks almost identical to my MIL's), the river rock tile looks fantastic and spa-like. My style tends to be a little more traditional, so I hadn't thought of incorporating it before.
I went to find some inspiration pictures. I only found one or two bathrooms that felt traditional (really they seemed transitional). The rest were very modern. For our master bath, I want to do something similar to what I did in the condo (marble subway with traditional fixtures), but I could see going a little more modern in our basement bathroom, which is a full bath.
With slightly lighter tile, this next design scheme could look pretty cool in our basement. I've been loving the ultra large tiles I've been seeing more often lately.
Looking at that time, I see so many grout lines, which makes me wonder how hard it is to keep a floor like that looking clean. I know I regret using basket weave tile on the floor in the condo because there were so, so many grout lines to scrub.
