Here's something you don't see a lot: tile in the bedroom. At least to us North Americans, it may seem a bit odd, because most of our design antecedents are northern European, from places where tile floors in the bedroom would be prohibitively cold. But this is actually really common in places like southern Europe and Morocco, where tile floors retain the evening coolness throughout the day and must feel incredibly pleasant underfoot. It's an idea worth trying if you live in a place like Texas with more hot months than cold ones — oh, and it's really pretty to boot.
