A band of bubbles streaks across the shower in a small bath design from Mercury Mosaics.  Framed by white subway tiles, the colorful accent in the aptly named "Bubbles" pattern is shown in Antique Pewter, Baby Blue, Deco White, Cobalt, Fire, Baroque Gold, Sapphire Blue and London Fog.

Hexagons from Mercury Mosaics' Honeycomb series accent the floor, walls and ceiling of the bathroom pictured below.  The hexagonal tiles, shown in Ash, Sun Yellow, Cornmeal, Deco White and Cashmere Creme, both complement and contrast with the subway tiles surrounding the tub.

Brief History of Subway Tile

Geometric shapes (rhombi) pop with mustard yellow in a contemporary bath in South Melbourne, Australia.  The dramatic 3D effect is achieved with multi-colored ceramic tiles from Italian manufacturer, Mutina.  The firm's Tex collection is inspired by textile textures, as reflected in the close-up image below, right.   Available in 8 colors, each of which encompasses 3 different shades, the tiles are pictured here in tex yellow, tex grey and tex white.  (Available through Urban Edge Ceramics)
