…Wild Tile

Since the furniture post sparked such a strong response, I thought you might want to delve a little bit deeper into the dark underbelly of the furnishings of this house…. er… well, it’s not really that exciting, but I thought I’d show you the nifty but wild tile choices made by our builders. (This house is BRAND new, they’re still working on it even).

First, the master bath, just to make you think everything is calm here. It’s beige on beige, but with a vaguely neo-classical bent.

Second, the guest bathroom. I call it the under-the-sea bathroom, and not just because it is BLUE, but because of the bubble tile. All three kinds of tile in this bathroom are bubbles, square bubbles. It’s like SCUBA diving in Flatland.

Third, our other bathroom. I’m not sure you’re ready for this, but here it is nonetheless… Already in costume for Halloween… It’s the bordello bathroom.

Yikes! I actually love the color, in moderation, and have previously painted a bathroom exactly that shade, but with a matching toilet and sink? Who knew you could buy burgundy toilets in the 21st century.

Last, the kitchen tile, lest you forget what a kitchen is for, this tile kindly reminds you that it is for coffee and blue oranges.

My lament is that the colorfulness is limited to the bathrooms. Someone else I know in the neighborhood is getting a mural painted in her house, and I am feeling inspired to mix things up in our dining room. A trompe-l’oeil scene, perhaps? Any ideas?

  1. WOW Lauren, I haven’t seen anything like this in Lalmatia! Looks like quite the home. I think you will be quite comfortable, despite the uniqueness of the colors, design…I always find the style here intriguing because it says so much. They seem to think about things we don’t in the West, and that can cut boths ways, right? Like your toilet above 😉

  2. I love, Love, LOVE those hand-held bidet hoses. I put one into our new bathroom in Sierra Madre, and am going to do the same here. Once you’ve had one, you just can’t do without.
