Tile Install - New Old Farmhouse Bathroom
The last update on our #NewOldFarmhouse showed off the drywall being hung and finished back a week or so ago. Today, I'm sharing a few photos of the tile work being done in an upstairs bathroom that I think is coming together really nicely. Nat has been the champion behind all of the design selections and she's done a really great job on all of it - including the tile.
This bathroom has a retro-vibe to it and she's using 'penny tiles' that from this distance look a bit like hexagon tiles, but are all circles. We had a hexagon tile bathroom floor in our last house, so I'm inclined to love the look, but in this one, she went in a little different direction by introducing a custom border around the room. In the photo at the top, you can see the section that the tile guy is working on. In that spot will be the pattern he's been building below. If you look closely at the photo above, you can see a printout of the tile pattern right above the tile guy's head. It is going to ring the room on the floor.
Here's a mock-up of the pattern he was building. He was doing this by hand - cutting the sections of black tile and fitting in the white flower patterns.
Because of how the pattern is laid out, one side of the border will have straight lines and the other will have a bit of a zig-zag. I think the contrast of those two meeting in the corners is going to be pretty neat to see.
The rest of the tile in the bathrooms and entryway is just as ambitious and I think you'll be able to tell that Nat was very thoughtful and deliberate in all of her selections. Can't wait to see them finished, grouted and all sealed up for when we're moving in later this summer.
