Caitlin try using painters tape and re-create the pattern from your black and white pillows
onto the blank wall. Then use a contrast in paint, say the rug color, to create a tone-on-tone look from colors already in the room. The key is tot to use too much contrast in smaller rooms to make a larger overall effect.
started with a 50/50 white:grey portland and used some coarse sand with small pea gravel. casted right side up! ground to expose aggreate then used my own lil blend of some stain z to color. the biz owner loved them!
I saw this tile that looks like hardwood in Lowes. Really nice looking product. Does anyone have experience with it and if so how do you handle grout (if at all)?

If it is a ceramic tile you should definitely grout between the lines as the grout helps to
hold the installation laterally in position for a stronger set. If you don't like unsightly grout lines use a tight joint (if the "tiles" are equally sized and don't vary) and find a matching grout color to help blend.
