Designer’s Tip: Coordinate the wall color around the tile. For small bathrooms, use a light colored paint to harmonizes the tile design. This will add depth to the accent wall and will emphasize your hard work, rather than drowning it out into the background. For larger bathrooms, using a darker paint or bright color on the walls as displayed below will make the mosaic wall pop.
