Mosaic Tile Wall Art and a Splash of Deep Blue Brings an Ordinary Bath to Life
Homeowner Wendy Chipman couldn't decide on a single style to surround her tub, so she collected various colors of tile that appealed to her. Without a sketch to work from, Wendy created a free-flowing design straight onto the wall. The claw foot tub is painted deep blue inside to coordinate with blue wall tiles, and a custom design on the ceiling offers an object for gazing while relaxing in a hot bath. Not feeling quite as creatively confident as Wendy? Take inspiration from an existing piece art, or a photo from nature, to fashion your own creation.
