A Case of the Blues, @_halcyonhouse
The easiest way to punch up an all-white bathroom while holding on to your crisp white linens and walls? A bold cobalt-blue tiled floor; it’s the perfect contrast to the layered whites above it.
Eclectic Edge, @angelahardison
With organic materials such as wood and Carrara marble already in place, these Tulum tiles from Cement Tile Shop add an unexpected—but welcome!—Southwestern edge to this kid-friendly bathroom.
A Touch of Lace, @jennasuedesign
For a perfect antique-meets-modern style, Jenna Sue painted her plain white claw-foot bathtub a warm gray, surrounded it with a delicately embroidered shower curtain, and added sleek brass fixtures that contrast perfectly with the black-and-white floor.
Bold and Beautiful, @eastcoastcreative
When it comes to pattern options, people often play it safe and stick with one, but Monica Mangin’s boldly patterned DIY bathroom vanity proves that with risk comes reward! We love the way the angular lines of the wall and floor tiles play off each other.
Opposites Attract, @the_styling_edge
Black and white is a classic pairing for good reason: Any way you spin it, the result is totally chic. Case in point? This bathroom, which unites black-and-white art, accents (hello, towel ladder!), and two types of tiles in perfect monochromatic harmony.
Off the Wall, @lindyegalloway
This bathroom proves that “the more the merrier” definitely rings true when it comes to tile. Doubling up on bold black-and-white tiles on the floor and the shower’s accent wall ties the room together and draws the eye up toward the beautiful ceiling detail. Bonus points for adding brass and water-friendly teak accents!
Read Between the Lines, @studiomatsalla
Graphic patterns don’t need to be heavy on color or complicated patterns. Keep things on the lighter side with an easy and elegant modern pattern like this flooring, which has a subtle Aztec influence.
Lay(er) It on Thick, @tessaneustadt
This Amber Interiors-designed vanity moment would be stunning no matter what, but the elevated bohemian styling truly sends it over the edge. Recreate the look at home—whether you have patterned tile or not—by layering a favorite rug on the floor, adding a vintage basket under the vanity, and topping it all off with a potted plant.
B&W Bathroom Bliss, @lifestyle_la
Keep your eyes on the prize by using a graphic floor—and contrasting half-tiled wall backsplash—to draw the eye up through a long, narrow bathroom toward the freestanding tub ahead. A glass-and-iron pendant above ties everything together. We couldn’t be more envious!
