But we got such a great deal on marble time through Derek's work that the design idea has had to shift a little. But we will find somewhere special in the house for the plate.
The tile we ended up with looks a little something like this:
Which as far as we can tell is white carrara and they are 12"x12". The plan is to use 1/16" spacers and a white-ish grout that "goes" with the tile.
As far as the rest of the bathroom, we've got a few ides. For the shower we're going to go with a neo-angle design set in the corner, with waist high knee walls and frameless glass doors. A little something like this:

Beautiful, isn't it? Like the picture above we're planning on using subway tiles (also being acquired through the tiles guys at Derek's work) but adding in an accent of glass mosaic tile. While hanging out at our new favourite store (that would be Home Depot) I put together this little mock up on the floor. The marble is fairly close to what we have for out tiles.
As far as the vanity and sink goes, Derek found this picture on the Rona website that we both realllllly like:

We've decided to go with the frosted natural glass counter top, kinda like this one from Rona:

Now, instead of going with the white vanity like they've got in the picture above, we're planning on something more along this line:
I would love to find something old and reclaim it, but we'll have to see how that goes.
As for the wall colour, we're thinking that we'll go with something the matches the blue glass in the tile mosaic.
And now, to pull it all together into a "mood board" as those designer types are want to do:
Next time I'll show you what's happened so far. That may or may not include a ceiling and shower walls!
