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.
