That is what I was looking for. Simple shiny white tile with accent grey color. I thought those are typical tile, however I couldn't find at other store.

Love the "handmade" look and size of this tile. Less stark than the typical subway tile and the size makes small backsplash space look larger and more modern.

I love the size and texture of this tile. It is different that ordinary subway tile but still has a clean and classic look.

I like the more organic feel and look to this finish,

looks more unique than the standard basic subway 4 x 12. Has a handcrafted look to it and I have 4 x 4 talavera tiles as an accent line for the shower, so I thought these would compliment that with a nice size ratio.

They are beautiful, at least in the photos. Description and photos led us to believe they are the right choice for our project.

my designer picked it

Pleasant contemporary yet traditional look. I used it for kitchen wall/backsplash and loved the results. "Easy tile" with a wavy texture that can be forgiving on small wall imperfections when installed.
Alessandro M on Feb 21, 2017
its a beautiful piece that reflects light more than a standard subway tile because of the handmade looking character
Sheila S on Feb 1, 2017
I like the color and the wavy texture.
Lily H on Jan 23, 2017
I liked that way the light reflects off of the tile...that it's not so flat looking. Also, it has an old world look to it.

Can this be installed on shower wall?
Michelle G on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have this installed on my shower walls. I get a lot of compliments. People think it looks like glass tiles. Just be aware that grouting is a bit more complicated because the edges are not flush with the main field of the tile so it requires a bit more 'push' to get the grout in.
would the lancaster bianco pencil trim match this tile?
Jessica S on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jessica,
I do not know if it would match. I purchased extra full size bullnose tile (santa monica) and had my tiler cut the bullnose side to 1/2 inch strips and used those to finish off the edges. It is a beautiful tile, we get many compliments!!
What is a good tile grout color to use with the white Santa Monica tile?
Rebecca N on Mar 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rebecca, I used a grout color called "london fog", a mid tone grey, looks beautiful! A white would also be nice, however not a pure white, as the tile is a softer white color. The tile itself is gorgeous, and the people at the Tile Bar are very helpful, they have top notch customer service. Hope this helps.
Installation
SUBSTRATE

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.

INSTALLATION
  • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
  • Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes. 
  • Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
  • The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
GROUTING
  • Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
  • Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
  • Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
  • Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
  • It is recommended to use non-sanded grout.
  • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as our MP90
  • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass & Stone Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/glass-stone-tile-maintenance-package.html
CUTTING

The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
