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. The porcelain tile, Electra Neptune by Stone Source, is inspired by encaustic cement tile, and its angled white lines create a mesmerizing pattern.

4. Geometric Gradient in Northern California
Various shades of blue diamond tile create a striking hexagon-shaped ombre effect that covers both floor and ceiling in this modern bathroom. Architects Carrasco & Associates and interior designer Isolina Mallon designed the home in Hillsborough, California. A vivid cyan blue vanity and towel bar add punchy contrast.

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.
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.
