This customer placed an order two complete bathrooms – above is the first (the second has basketweave flooring, with 3×6″ on the walls and Hexagon border) for approximately $5,000.  The customer commented below:

“Hi Guys.  I know I’m delayed in getting these to you, but here are pictures of our master bath using your tile (herringbone mosaic, 3×6, 6×12, crown).  Please let me know if the pictures don’t come through.  It is stunning!  I couldn’t be happier.  The only tile that’s not yours is the border tile, which is from Ann Sacks.  As you can see, the Ann Sacks tile is a bit darker — I like your tile better!  I’ll send you pictures of the hall bath in another email.”
 

The products used to complete this bathroom are:

  • Carrara Venato 3×6″ ($7SF)
