The bun baker is surrounded by soap stone and the tiles should go along with and compliment it. So that it pops and is a feature in the room.
We've looked at floor tile and I'm envisioning large tile, something like 16"x16" or larger, and no grout lines.
I've narrowed it down to either a porcelain tile:
Pro: it has a nice smooth surface making it easy to clean.
Con: and I have to guess here - the tiles won't be unique like natural tile
|I like the one in the upper left and lower right corner.|
Pro: It's natural tile and each piece is unique.
Con: The surface is not flat making it a bit of work to get the bun baker level and makes cleaning a bit harder.
Summery: the pro of one, is the con of the other - It might boil down to price...but like I mentioned before it might come down to ease of cleaning.
Now for the wall. As in my drawing I really like the stacked stone, with no grout line.
I've picked out 4 different colors and which one depends on what looks best - don't want the corner to be to dark.
These are my favs:
|I think this will be the one be go for, but it all has to go together - so I'll have to trust in Lisa and David.|
The barn wood we'll be using for the mantle is kinda grey.
So, it's all coming together....can't wait to get it all in.
Aloha Hui hou!
