Master Bathroom Update: Looking less Outhouse-y

BIG moves on the master bathroom aka The Outhouse!  It looks much less outhouse-y these days and much more like a real bathroom!

This is mainly because we finally made a decision about tile.  If you ever want to drive yourself insane, go into a tile store.  Never had I ever imagined there were so many possibilities. And then when you're done picking tile, you have to pick out the grout color, which can make or break the whole look.

Here's a bathroom we used as inspiration for the look we were going for:

We knew we wanted to include a wood element to give it that spa-like retreat kinda like what is shown here. Since we're rebels, we decided not to install a tub after we removed it so this design really appealed:

We decided on this beautiful dark grey slate-like porcelain tile. (Slate and porcelain are two different types of tile - file that under useless info you do not need).  

It is very very similar to the texture of the below but NOT the color of the below.  This is just to show you the lovely, lovely texture.  When you touch it, it feels like your own personal rock quarry. I can't wait to touch it!!!  We are also going to use it on the floors. Hopefully that will create a cool, seamless look.
I touch you once, I touch you twice, I won't let go at any price

It is this color, which I think is called midnight black, which makes me feel like a design badass.

As I've mentioned before, I can't stand when tile goes up the whole wall, so we are only going to use that in the shower wall and do a wood bench hopefully teak or a teak-like color. Maybe something like this:

The other, non-shower walls (up to around the 4-foot mark), we are going to do a grey slate. Its called Carrara White marble:
Why is everything Italian always sexy?
So that's your tile update!  What do you think?
