Well, I hope you're definitely feeling better now, but I'll pile on. Personally, I really love this look. It's beautiful and you are gonna LOVE YOUR POOL! Omg, I am SO glad that we bought a home with the pool already in. Even if there are things I would change, I am not sure I have the stomach to go through a build and having to make all of these decisions! I would second guess myself about every darned thing and give myself an ulcer :LOL:
yes.. you probably would!! Its sooooo stressful! But, I agree.. it probably would have looked good several ways... I was worried about the rock feature they were building and travertine looking right... I thought grout, no big deal.. sounds great, lets do blue to match! AHHHH when it went in I was like oh my goodness.... but I agree, it does look good... just darker than I expected it to be.... thanks again!

OH my gosh.. I was thinking about you last night at 2 am when I couldn't sleep stressing over it.. why did I ask KIM!! So thanks so much! Its all coming together pretty good.. can't wait.. I HOPE we get plaster this week.. I can't see why not... doing tropic blue mini pebble with extra black pebbles to deepen it... I tried to find the exact formula someone used but I couldn't nail down the specifics... I will ask on the boards... I love both reverse tahoe and the darker tropics but I am 99% sure tropics is the one... any advice there is greatly appreciated!

I would stick with what you have picked already. It is pretty and classic. It will work purrfect with your waterline tile (and it's wonderful grout)!

We are putting in the exact same tile right now....we are really happy with it, and I had no idea what color the grout was. I had to go look, and it looks about the same as yours, maybe 1 shade lighter. I naver thought once about the grout color until now...but it looks fine, and the tile looks good.

yes.. we are doing tropics blue.. but sometimes it seems too light... we had a very light blue quartz before and I definitely want it darker.. but not midnight dark.. in between... my guy says the plaster guy will know what to do... scary... one more thing and I can stop stressing.
