Hi @kellys! Thanks! We grouted the tile with white grout. It's holding up pretty well. We didn't seal the tile (due to being a little overwhelmed with all the Curbly House shenanigans taking place at the time), which has made the grout more prone to showing dirt. But that said, it looks good. We're considering steam cleaning it and sealing it down the road.

Wow, I stumbled over here looking for info on the white linen floor tiles, and I'm loving your house. I wonder with the floor tile, what grout did you use? Is it white? How is it holding up?

 ... and definitely show us some pics if you can!

@Teresa - yes! We still love the Alpaca; it does have a bit of a taupe look sometimes, but we think it's very pretty and the gray really comes through.

Teresa on Feb 26, 2014:

Hi there, I did a Google search on Alpaca paint because I am trying to decide if I want to go for it! I love that look, very similar to my style- well done! Do you like the Alpaca still? Do you find it a bit taupe-like? I'm focusing on yellow accents.

I really liked the old color, but you're right -- the new color is wonderful. I'm committing Sherwin WIlliams' Alpaca to memory. And thanks for talking about the Emerald paint's 'honey' thickness. That was my complaint about their paint from long ago. Time to try it again!

Hi Mel! Thanks for the kind feedback about our bathroom. You will LOVE your Modwalls tiles; they are stunning. We used a standard white grout from the hardware store with our tiles.

We would have loved to use the Modwalls grout (we've heard wonderful things about it), but we were doing everything on such a tight deadline and we weren't able to have it shipped in time to make our move in day. Enjoy your new tile and good luck with your project!

Mel on May 24, 2013:

What a wonderful transformation!  You definitely have a knack for detail.  We ordered the white line tiles from Modwalls for our bathroom renovation.  May I ask what color grout you used?  Thanks!

Thank you all for your feedback!

Aidel.K: I am also a complete convert! Glad you like the room (and that tray and hamper).

Elizabeth: Thanks for the grammar edit! It completely slipped by me.

Kathy: I'm glad you like the splashes of color. I think that's the best part about having a neutral wall color.

Elizabeth on Apr 22, 2013:

"Complements" is the word you you should use when talking about the breakup of the colors and everyone remaining friends, (an artfully charming way to broach it all!). The beauty of the room is intriguing, as small spaces are not given print room much at all. I intend to use your terrific information for a bathroom soon. Thank you.

Gorgeous! I'm also a big Sherwin Williams fan. Initially I bought SW paint because there's a shop right around the corner from me--I was quickly converted! Thanks for including resources; I love the Thomas Paul Whale trays & that hamper.
