[ pinwheel pretty ]

I'M A huge fan of tiled walls in bathrooms. Remember all of those homes from the 50s ~ they all had tiled walls, just up to below eye level, capped off by a single row of accent tile? It was just the standard thing to do.

Nowadays, we often only see tile on floors and shower walls. But look at how pretty some wall tile can be...


These pinwheel marble tiles add such character to this bathroom and give a white bathroom a bit of subtle colour. While they may be a bit busy for the entire room, on an accent wall they really make a statement. I love the antique mirror sconces and elegant mirror as well. Do you have tiled walls in your bathroom?

I love that look......I also love my house but who ever built it when it came to the bathroom they must of ran out of money or were just clueless...there is not a day that I don't say I hate this bathroom. But with the starting of paying college tuition the bathroom has been bumped down the list!

What a great vanity! I love the cabinet, the sconces, the tile, the towel warmer... so much detail (and you know how I love detail!) The mirror is a bit small for me... but is all goes perfectly there! Thanks for sharing. Have a great day. Jalon

This has to be one of my favorite design trends of late, for both bathrooms and kitchens. Adore this photo. Janell

I do! We have a tiled wall in our powder room - my favorite spot in the house. Also, our guest bathroom is completely tiled from the floor up the walls. The only bathroom that isn't is our master, that seems silly as it's where I spend the most time.

Does pink plastic tile count? I have pink plastic tile with black plastic tile border. I'd be up for these tiles....beautiful!

Those are gorgeous!!

I don't sadly - I would love subway tile, I'm a huge fan. Maybe one day, but I'm afraid there are a few "to do" projects ahead of the tile in line. ;-)
