The Acorn Cottage {Tile}

Earlier today, J and I spent a little time looking for tile for the two baths and the kitchen back splash. 

As I mentioned earlier, both baths are getting a complete overhaul from top to bottom. Both look like they have not been touched since the 60s/70s. It is past time for a reno.

Here's how the baths look at this moment:

I am partial to the look of a timeless bath, so I am going for subway tiles on the walls and showers and the penny-style tile for the floors. Both baths will be in the same color scheme but will feature different penny tiles as well as accents. The look I am going for is similar to these.

For the kitchen back splash. I cannot get my mind off this one I found today. Stunning!

I cannot wait for Tuesday, June 12, and the day the demolition begins. I hope you will follow along.

Tiles, y'all!


  1. Love that tile too, it is going to be amazing.

  2. Ron,
    Love the tile choices! We did a similar renovation to our 90s era bathroom. We tore out an outdated Jacuzzi tub and replaced it with a walk-in shower/bench and frameless shower door.

  3. Ahhhhhhh love the new inspiration for the bathroom re loves. Ron this is amazing. I cannot wait for June 12th too. These bathrooms are going to be beautiful. Woooo Hoooo!
    Happy Weekend.

  4. The look you are going after will be simply stunning.

  5. Good morning, Ron! I love the look of a timeless bathroom--subway tile is perfect for creating that look! I really like the tile you are thinking about for the backsplash in the kitchen--it really makes a statement. Can't wait to follow you along during the renovation of the Acorn Cottage! Have a great day! xoxo

  6. The bathrooms are so BROWN!! I love a good white timeless bathroom. Perfect. This is fun for us as well. Come on June 12th!

  7. Love your ideas for the tiles. At least with that kind of coloring you can mix in anything you want so it’s a win win and the classics are always a win win!

  8. love that kitchen tile and i never ever get tired of subway and penny tile. the best!
