It's no secret that we are huge fans of tile. It's also not a secret that we are huge fans of do-it-yourself projects. So when our two great loves converge, we do a tile-loving-DIY-fan happy dance. Germarie added some oomph to her standard shower by creating her own black and white patchwork tiles.
From Germarie: Patchwork tiles are very trendy this year, but retiling a bathroom can be an expensive and messy exercise. I really love patchwork tiles and decided to take the plunge and stamp my existing plain shower tiles to create a trendy black and white pattern.
My shower was plain, simple and quite uninspiring. The metal content in our water on the farm is very high, so things that come into regular contact with water don't stay white for very long. I didn't have very high hopes for the white tiles, and figured I didn't have much to lose by trying!
Black and white is such a classic combination and it works in any room. I have teamed up my black and white bathroom with a deep green accent wall to create a Victorian look. My bathroom is my sanctuary and now I love it even more!
For step-by-step instructions on how to get this look yourself, head on over to Homeology, where Germarie will walk you through the surprisingly easy process!
Thank you so much, Germarie! You can see this project and many, many more on Homeology.
