|Our "New" Bathroom|
I was actually happy about this bathroom. No 1960s bright pink 4x4 tiles every where. The dirt and grime really didn't phase me. But the tub and sink are peeling, and the toilet needs to be reset. The bathtub has a bucket trap instead of a p trap and no shower head.
We're going to avoid trendy tumbled travertine (see below). This tile will date bathrooms from today's era; I don't predict this material to be timeless.
I want something so classic that the materials and colors will still look appealing in 20 years. Historic luxury hotels often have just these types of bathrooms. Here are some inspiration pictures that have got my mind humming tonight . . .

I'm hunting around tile store clearance tomorrow. Let's see what I can find . . .
