Help!!
I have to choose my waterline by the end of the day. I’ve narrowed it down to NPT Sileverstone Ocean or Silverstone Aquamarine.
I’ve searched the internet for pictures of completed pools using these tiles and I’m not finding much.. I like the darker from the few that I found.
In person and the pictures I’m taking I’m leaving towards the lighter marine tile. I just worry it may put off too much of a green tone. I’m making myself crazy! 🤦🏼‍♀️
We are going with flagstone coping and cool deck patio. I’m almost positive we will be going with Stonescapes Tahoe Blue.. but Midnight blue isn’t completely off the table yet.

Which quartzscapes finish is that? The overall hue of the water that should give you is what would drive my decision. If an aquamarine (blue/green) hue, then I'd go with the left tile in your final pic. If a predominantly blue hue, I'd go with the right tile. For the 1x1, I'd go with the more multi colored one on the left, regardless of the waterline tile I chose.

Thank you so much for your response..
:) attaching photos of Tahoe blue.
I did just find someone’s post using the lighter tile and multi tone colored glass tile and I loved it. I’ll post that too. :) files are too large for the completed photo but it looks beautiful.

Very nice finish, and water color with the Tahoe blue!

Ill be honest, I don't think you can go wrong with either tile. Ask yourself this question "do you want contrasting waterline tile, or a more seamless transition from water to coping". If you want seamless, I'd go with the left (more aquamarine color), and if you want a little contrast, I'd go with the right.

After picking plaster (last decision we finally made) the next difficult decision was waterline and 1x1 tile. I assure you, we've all struggled with it. Personally, I like contrast, and would pick the tile on the right. Hope that helps!
