This divided bath by Smith & Vansant Architects features white 3‐by‐6‐inch tiles in both the sink area and the shower area, though each room has its own style of floor tile. The headquarters of Schoolhouse Electric proves that subway tiles and gray grout aren't just for the bathroom and kitchen. Here they're used in an office space that celebrates timeless and minimalist style.
White on white. This kitchen is in sync with the overall design of the house. "It's part of a new French‐inspired home on South River in Annapolis, Maryland", says Brad Creer of Bradford Design. "The wife wanted an all‐white house both inside and outside, including the furniture. The only other colors are the limited use in some of the accents. And the only nonwhite space in the home is the husband's large barroom, which has a dark wood finish".
Depending on what type of professional you hired, or if you are doing your own kitchen, you may start the finishes and fixture selection process from a different jumping‐off point. Rather than picking the cabinet wood species and finish color by itself, and then picking countertops and tile, I like to have my clients work on an overall palette of materials at the same time. Layer the materials and create collages of patterns, textures and colors to see what works best together.
