I love my house. A lot. We built it from the ground up and I can honestly say there is very little I would change if I could do it all over again. The one thing I would change is the grout in the shower of my master bathroom. We have white subway tile with soft gray grout-it's fresh, clean and bright and I love it, but it's a lot of work to keep the corners clean, where the walls meet the floor. When you build, it takes a little while for the house to settle and when it does, the grout at the corners of the floor usually break and need to be re-grouted. This is totally normal. It happened in the kitchen, too, where the tile backsplash met the countertop, as well.
The problem was when the tile guy came to re-do it, instead of grout, he used silicone, which promptly turned BLACK after a few showers. He's since been back three more times to fix it with the original grout, but he did a crap job of getting rid of all the silicone, so I've found someone else to come and do it the right way. Now, I'm seriously considering re-grouting the whole shower in charcoal grout, instead of the light gray - it may save my sanity, but it's a timely, costly and messy job, so I'm on the fence as to whether or not I'm going to go this route. Here are some inspiration pictures that got me loving this classic combination in the first place:
