This is a really unique design; the honey-colored wood cabinetry and the dark brown hexagon tiles lend to a warm and cozy feel in the space.

However, neither of those distracts from the main design feature, the patterned tile on the wall. It draws the eye and adds color and style to the room.

The warm brown tones make for an inviting space, allowing the patterned tile to shine. They've rounded out the accents with nice potted plants, tying the space nicely.

8. Simplistic Chic

The shower surround itself lends a pop of contrast to the space while they have matched the walls to the flooring. The silver fixtures and lighter grout help balance it all out. 

9. Country Beige
