3. Dazzling and Dramatic in Southern California

Floor-to-ceiling matte hexagonal tile creates a dramatic backdrop for the soaking tub in this Los Angeles bathroom designed by architecture firm Lewis / Schoeplein.

6. Calming and Cool in Chicago

Erica Lugbill of Lugbill Designs
worked with her clients to create a watery blue, textured tile accent wall in their 49-square-foot bathroom. “This makes the space appear larger by creating a continuous sightline between the shower and the rest of the bathroom,” Lugbill says.

“There are a handful of different graphic-patterned field tiles that were installed randomly over the whole wall. This created a subtle graphic pattern with high impact,” she says.

7. Sparkling Blue Shower in Tennessee

Turquoise glossy field tile outlines the entrance to this walk-in shower by build firm Build Nashville. Inside the shower, three walls are wrapped in deep blue tiles, and a star-patterned floor tile adds a celestial touch.

8. Pool House Palms in Pennsylvania

A vibrant palm-patterned wallpaper wraps the walls in this Indiana, Pennsylvania, pool house bathroom by interior designer Elise Denver. A light wood vanity and floors complete the look.

9. Navy and White in Massachusetts

Interior designer Janet Shea Interiors created this 5-by-8-foot bathroom in Cohasset, Massachusetts, in a mostly navy-and-white palette to give it a nautical feel. “We decided to use navy tile for the upper third of the tiled walls to keep this small bath from feeling too dark,” she says. A Shaker-style weathered wood vanity and weathered wood-look porcelain floor tile add warmth and texture to the space.

10. Soothing Sky Blue in South Dakota

This bathroom in a newly built home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, features a custom single-sink vanity by Showplace Cabinetry. The vanity is painted in a light sky blue, which complements the subtle accent color seen in the patterned backsplash tile.
