Decisions, Decisions

We're still making decisions on our bathroom remodel. We have decided on our tile for the walls. We're going to go with 3x6 subway field tiles in a color called parchment (which is really a very light olive green). The coved border bottom tiles are 4x6 (I think) in black. We've yet to determine the top border style but it will be in black as well. We're going to do a decorative tile that looks like this:

Probably in a combo of white, dark red and a pink. We may have a black border surrounding this decorative border. But WAIT, there's more!!! What we're currently grappling with is the floor tile. We've ordered samples of this:

Which is a marble basketweave. It is actually really cool and fairly unassuming looking. I'm a little hesitant to put marble in there because I'm worried about it not fitting in with the house. Like maybe it is too fancy for a little ole' bungalow? But it is very different, very pretty and historical nod given that it is basketweave and marble. We are also looking at reproducing the original tile:

Isn't our little model so cute? This is when Shelbers was a tiny girl. So anyways, I do la-la-love this tile and am interested in just getting it again but in a color combo that will match the wall tiles. I think this is the option for which I'm going to lobby.

What else are we looking at? Well, redoing all the plumbing (still studying!) Radiant floor heating (especially if we get the marble - brrrrr). A heated towel rack (a girl can dream, right?) A quiet, energy efficient bathroom fan. And still haven't decided on bathroom fixtures. Can't seem to find the perfect fit just yet. Stay tuned!
