Bathed in Blue
Cooling, gentle, and quite apropos for such a water-centric space, blue is one of the most popular color selections for bathroom designs. Said to slow our heart rates and breathing, tiles in this soothing shade have the power to instantly relax us, setting the perfect tone for feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Moody & Marvelous
Rich woods, dusky color tones and subdued lighting aren’t off limits in the bathroom. In fact, some may prefer them for such a private, personal space. Tiles in darker shades with rustic textures and patinated surfaces can add tremendous character and lend a luxurious, moody ambience to the modern lavatory.
