White Tile...

I had a very "friendly" request from the old buddy Caldwell. She is in the process of re-doing her bathroom and the look they're going for is white subway tile and white marble countertops. Her two tasks at hand for decisions are as follows: what to do with the floor and wha to do with the walls.

As much as I think it would be insanely TDF to have a bathroom of wall to wall subway tile, I also recommended she stay on the practical side with cost cutting. In my opinion, a home should be something you love. It should reflect your personal style regardless of the amount of time you plan on living there. Whether you never can imagine leaving the house you live in or you know that you have 5 years before an upgrade is necessary, I think it is extremely important to personalize your living space. However, if you're in the 5 years or less category like my friend Sara, I don't necessarily recommend sinking boo koodles of money into renovations.

So, I told her that if it were me, I'ld opt for subway tile in the shower, a hexagon tile on the floors and the white marble countertop. Drywall will be just fine if painted the perfect color of muted grey in my opinion. Since that wasn't life changing or anything spectacular, I figured I could gather up several white bathroom pictures as inspiration.

Mrs. Whatley {Caldwell}, enjoy!!

I'm drooling. I LOVE white bathrooms. And I want the light fixture in the 3rd picture.
