So, I see you decided to take a closer look at some of our pictures of this beautiful coral reef ceramic tile shower design. There are also finished installation pictures under our Showers/tropical link to the left.

You might wonder how I come up with some of these scenes. First of all, I never work from sketches; it's all in my head. I can actually envision my mosaic tile design fully in my minds eye; scale of each tile and everything. It's a gift and a curse...

So, to begin...each client is expected to send in color swatches from a local paint store or pictures of their tiles if they aren't too worried about color matching. This client, Barbie, decided to send me a picture of her shower's field tiles...

I put her picture in Adobe Photoshop and did a color enhancement to make sure the colors were true; or my best guess of true color. From the colors that I see in the field tile, I determine the predominant tones. In this case I saw cream, tan, white, rust, and gray. Gray is always a nice color to use because it is neutral and looks great with any other color. You wonder why this is? The color gray is the exact balance of red/blue/yellow; our primary colors that make up all of the other colors.

Here are a few close up pictures to show you the coloration...

This school of sea turtle ceramic tiles range in size from 12" down to 6". The treasure chest shaped ceramic tile is about 18" in length, while the octopus tile is about 8" in size.

The two tang fish mosaic tiles, although not their true color are still very pleasing to the eye as a monochrome tile design. Just enough coloring to make them attractive, but still be monochrome in nature.

And what coral reef ceramic tile design isn't complete with a couple clown fish mosaic tiles, coral shaped tile, and sand dollar ceramic tiles...

This is a close up of the shaped pelican ceramic / mosaic tiles. If you look close, you can see they are lightly carved and stained with a pale gray glaze, then airbrushed with a tan and pencil yellow tone; just enough to add some dimension and not be overwhelming.
