Tiny mosaic tiles in a wide range of blue are a beautiful way to decorate this small bathroom's shower backsplash and a nice nod to the home's ocean setting!
The lines in this bathroom are slim, so as not to create too imposing of a feel in the small, angular space. Green marble makes for a striking sink countertop.

Paneling gets fresh white paint for the walls, soft gray on the ceiling for a peaceful, light look. The round mirror mimic's a boat's porthole.
