The tiles in the master bath are from Italy, the mosaic floor tiles are from Turkey, and the decorative pieces were from the US. Here the tiles are mounted but not yet grouted. The decorative pieces are taped off to make cleanup easier. Some of the tiles on the wall, called medallions, match the other tiles but have a pattern stamped into them. These too were covered in tape to avoid excessive cleanup time.
There is a niche on the right built with 2x4s and cement board. The building inspector told me she normally only sees those in really nice houses. Wow. (6/30/05)
