We would like the wall in our bathroom, the one where the vanity hangs, to be tiled differently than our regular tile. And we would like it to be ceiling high. (All the other walls should have as little tile on them as possible).
So why don't you show us your textured, patterned or 3d tiles :)
We have the same floor and wall tiles in our apartment, and we love it.
I originally wanted to accent with vintage tile, but then I was afraid I would get bored with it quickly. Textured tiles are ruled out for me for the same reason + maintenance.
A friend has beige grooved tile that looks a bit like wood. It looks great, but since it's in their shower, they get limescale and dust sticking to them.
