I picked my little brother up off the plane this morning, he has been in Canada and the US for almost exactly a year. It was so nice to see him!

He's staying with us for a week and renovating our bathroom. Little brothers are great!

We've run into a floor related issue- namely that the last time the bathroom was renovated, they stuck cork tile to the existing plastic tile. Probably because the existing plastic tile is stuck to the beautiful wooden floors with what might as well be cement.

We've (and by we, I mean Michael and Sam who are doing all the hard work while I cook pies) decided to abandon the wooden floor ship and jump onto the tile lifeboat.

Pinterest to the rescue.

While this is a tile monstrosity, it shows the relationship between different sized tiles. We will probably choose bigger tiles for the floor and littler mosaic ones for the bath.

The inverse relationship, with the littler tiles on the floor.

Just so awesome!

Love the eclectic mix of tiles.

Again with the big/little.

Hmmm... what do you think?
