Freshen Up Your Bathroom in 2017 With This Mixed Tile Trend
Mixed tiles are popping up in rooms far and wide, and they just might be what your 2017 space needs. Pattern lovers will fall head over heels for the limitless possibilities that come from mixing colors, textures and styles. And minimalists will breathe a big ol’ sigh of relief at just how little decor is needed once complementary tile comes into play. That said, whether you’re a “less is more” decorator or a “give me all the decor” kind of person, this style will instantly add more depth, layers and intrigue to your aesthetic. Don’t believe us? Behold the inspiration below!
1. Subway + Patterned: Subway tiles are an invitation to play with different colors and patterns because there’s very little that won’t complement them. And this rich blue pattern demonstrates just how bold you can be without overwhelming your space.

Base Color PlayWhite subway tile is great, but gray might be even better. Gray acts as the base color in this bathroom to keep the aesthetic soft and warm, while the muted blue pattern provides texture to the overall look. (via Chic Deco)
