If you ask me about bathroom tile trends, I would quickly point to dark grey and brown grout used to point up white bathroom walls — particularly to freshen up white subways. And while subway tiles are rarely used on floors, I thought they gave this very traditional black and white Brentwood, Ca. bath by Madeline Stuart [top] an unsually bold look. But wait. Closer inspection revealed why: the floor tiles are not actually subways. They are a black and white mosaic floor tiles, or dots, set to create a faux-subway pattern with a handsome black border. I’ve seen many black-and-white mosaic dot floor patterns and I think this has a lot to offer.
Another illusionistic mosaic floor tile pattern plays with hexagonal, or six-sided tiles which come in many sizes. That game of dots created an intricate black-and-white double hex, or honeycomb, pattern from a mix of honed thassos, bardiglio and calacatta marble mosaic dots. Floors like these require detailed planning and highly skilled tile setters but the extra effort is clearly worth the result which, in both cases, are echoed by mirrored bathroom furnishings — to reflect the glitz, of course.
