"Timeless" bathroom for Spanish Mediterranean style home

Lyndsey Adamo
4 months ago

Hi, I am redoing both my primary and guest bathroom in a 1920s Spanish Mediterranean home (FL). Our home style currently is transitional, but I'd like to add a bit more of a palm beach style to it with wallpaper + decor.
I would love advice on selecting the tile for our primary bathroom, which then I will do a similar style to coordinate for the guest bathroom. I want the style to be "timeless". While nothing is truly timeless, I don't want it to be trendy and something that will go out of style in a short few years. I also want it to somewhat reflect our style home being Spanish Mediterranean, without being rustic.
Here's my current thoughts, but please let me know if you have other recommendations.
1. Zellige look
Wall tile: bedrosians porcelain 4x4 tiles (cloe in cream or white)
Floor tile: Carrara marble basket weave

2. Star and cross tile
Wall tile: Bedrosians porcelain star and cross tiles in white mixing matte and gloss for a subtle checkerboard look
Floor tile: white hexagon 1"

3. Traditional subway tile
Wall tile: square subway tile (maybe one with texture, but solid white and no color variation)
Floor tile: Carrara marble basket weave or similar

Our home is small, so our bathrooms are small. We have a standard size shower and 48" vanity. I would like to keep tile simple, but not too boring to where it looks "builder grade." I plan to use wallpaper to bring personality and color into the room.
Our kitchen was remodeled and has brick floors, white textured subway tile (2x9), and sage green cabinetry.
Please share any feedback and advice.
Thanks!
