Wow!  The bathroom floor looks fabulous.  Unfortunately, the shower tile and fixture are not worthy.  The square tiles look too 60’s-70’s; the brass fixtures have water marks and the finish is actually peeling; and while I love the wainscoting in the rest of the bath, it just feels like too many textures/materials in the shower.  Total style clash with the new floor and my vision for this first floor guest bath (shhhhh…dog bath).  I am going to do this once, so I will do it right.  Again, I looked to the Locke-Marchialetti project house for inspiration.  Carrera marble looks fantastic in Victorian era homes.  It has such a classic, timeless look.  I am going to have to develop a plan for the tile on the drawer cabinet.  It also has the square tiles on the side and top surface.


We demo’d the shower and I will use the 6″ X 12″carrera marble tiles.  Also found someone who can create a solid marble surface for the drawer cabinet.  Can’t wait!


On a quest for perfect shower and sink fixtures.  I love the look of brass fixtures in a Victorian home, but maintenance seems impossible.  They look so worn so quickly.  Does anyone out there have good tips for brass maintenance.  I’m considering oil-rubbed bronze.  Stay tuned.

Take care!
