We went and searched for tile on Saturday. I finally settled on this really neutral ceramic tile that has the appearance of travertine stone. There are two reasons it is better for us to use ceramic tile rather than actual Travertine: 1) Travertine is porous and uneven in texture, therefore it is harder to sweep and mop because things get caught in the crevices. 2) Ceramic is much cheaper!
So here is the tile. We are putting 18x18 squares on the floor and 12x12 tiles in the shower.
This is the sidesplash of the granite that is on the countertop of the vanity. The granite is really warm, so I liked how this neutral tile brought out the tan tones in the granite.
We are also going to do a row of accent tile at eye level on the shower wall. It will be a row, two or three tiles high, of this 2x2 accent tile.
In other words, we will cut this sheet of small tiles into either 2 or 3 rows and lay them side by side in a line.
Here are some examples of what an accent row of tile looks like in a shower:
