Thanks for all the recommendations!! We did end up going with the hexagon white glossy tile for both bathrooms with gray grout (thanks to the great reader suggestion):
Turns out we needed 50 square feet for the Master bedroom bath, so paying $10 versus $5.95 per square foot would have been quite the price difference.
The good news- thanks to a Memorial Day Weekend Sale- I got the tile from The Tile Store at 15% off and no shipping. So the tile was about $4.64 per square foot- or $441 for 95 square feet. We saved almost $200 from ordering the tile from Amazon or Home Depot. Whoot whoot. (Missed the sale? Go over to Young House Love and you can get their 10% Tile Store coupon code).
Bad news, we won't get the tile before we move in. So we have to postpone the work a bit.
Good news- the back half of the house will be painted this week before we move in.
So, here's what we have going on in the hall bath:
Here's our hall bath tile and wall color inspiration- I told you it was good:
I also love that there is a bit of pink (ok, peach) which is kinda girly, and totally ok because it will be Hazel's bathroom.
And the Master bath will have two colors.
Behr Sparkling Spring for the sink area (and for the guest room):
Behr River Rock for the shower area:
Again with the hexagon white tile:
We had to go with gray to match the existing tile that we won't be changing out (yet). Plus these colors go with the main Master bedroom color, Polar White:
Some of you might be thinking- why are all the colors so colorless?? Yes, I am known for LOVING color, but our new house is Freaking DARK that I have to lighten it up somehow. And no, I am not just making that up- our super cool new neighbor (yes we've already been to their house twice- and yes, she has already offered to babysit for free!! And yes I will take her up on that offer since she was a NICU nurse), went on and on about how our houses get so little light. She added on and put in sky lights to finally get some light in her house- sigh, some day.
Back on track, so you will see that my color choices are almost color free, but I kept them in the cool color range to add some light to some dark spaces. Cross your fingers that it works because we are paying a pretty little penny to have the house professionally painted. Yes. We are taking the easy route out. With the move, the new job, a 5.5 month old baby and the fact that I want to paint every wall- I just don't have the capacity to DIY the paint at this point.
So that is what I have so far. Wall colors and tile.
What do you think of my hall bath inspiration??
