Looks awesome. That tile work in the shower is top class, and the way you wrapped it around the bathroom has a nice retro look to it. Love the color. Someone needs to produce some high-quality Egyptian cotton tiki towels.

Thats really nice. Great job!
Old school colors always look the best in bathrooms. How many other projects has she booked you for? once they know you can do this sort of work the requests never end.

I'm so glad the pictures are still posted. I lusted after this tile job when I first saw it but only just recently bought a house that will support something like this!

I love the shower and I read all the posts. So how many times have you turned that shower on? Wendy

Now that a loaded question, seeing as where you have to grab it to turn it on!

Very Beautimus! Glad you got rid of that blue color! What a peaceful place to take a shower and being watched over by a tiki!

Mahalos for the compliments, this was a fun project... I learned a lot on this. It's funny how only the fans of tiki made comments on the handle placement, it really flew under the radar with everyone else... Unfortunately, I sold the house, but the new owners are tiki fans and have told me several times how much they love it. So at least it went to a good home.

I have drawn up a couple of ideas for my next tile project, I just have to find the time. I liked working on such a large "canvas" and I can't wait to do it again..
