We need to renno our master bath at a vacation home.
We want white cabinetry with kind of coastal/country look--with beadboard insets on some of the doors--but some would be just a Shaker-style door with plain inset...
We want subway tile in the shower w/some glass tile mosaics for decorative trim and also some listelo-type pieces...
We are taking out the old, small corner shower and the old soaking tub and just adding a walk-in shower across on wall--about 4 x 6 space--so shower will be focal point of bath...
vanity is in separate space--

We have to take out current lux vinyl plank flooring because it is not available for replacing missing parts in new arrangement--will take out all the current flooring in master suite to have one uniform floor---
this will be another luxury vinyl plank flooring in a med/light brown that looks sort of distressed--like driftwood.

We are having a terrible time finding a decorative mesh tile (glass preferably) that has a true white with beige/tan/ivory tones and another color--maybe a blue...
the ones we have seen mainly have vanilla/ivory--not white--
Went to Dal Tile today and found maybe 1 but they didn't have sample of it in stock...

any one have suggestion for mosaic that would have blend of true white/beige/and maybe a blue??

Find one that has one color missing. Then buy that one color and pop out six pieces or so in the multi colored tile mesh and put them in when installing. Fussy but thats how to get the colors you want.

There are companies that will make the tile you want with the colors you pick out but they are spendy. modwalls blender

You can order your own custom blend of colors here:

Glass Tile Design, Custom Mosaic Design, Kitchen and Bathroom Tile from Hakatai

We did this for my sister's back splash. It's a pretty cool feature they offer.

Assuming you are talking about sheet mosaics - get samples and take to the site.
They often look different there.

Hello, color for tile or mosaic depends upon you, that what type of tile you want for your home. It comes in various sizes as well as colors.
