The tile decision!

It took a while (the original post was back in February!), but we did end up making a decision on what tile to use for the guest bathroom as well as what layout to go with. Quick recap, we wanted to give a good nod to Beetlejuice in this room, but didn't want it to feel overly themed. So in the end we opted to reference the iconic black and white scheme that comes to mind with the movie, while referencing a more mature mid-century modern aesthetic for the patterning of the tile layout.

Above are the two tile styles that we are going to be using. The first is a split black and white, and the second will be used in full black as well as full white. As noted in the original post, these are concrete tiles made by Clé Tile

For the layout we looked to the amazing collection of patterns created by Alexander Girard, in particular the Check Split pattern above. It is wild enough to make an impact, while at the same time also giving us that Beetlejuice reference we love so much. Below are some mockups of the tile layout, with and without bathroom elements. We're super excited to see this completed and up on the wall hopefully real soon!
