Sizes of Subway Tiles & Patterns

Hello everyone,

This is the first question I am posting, but I am sure there will be many more to follow.

We are in the process of gutting our basement to make a new family room, bathroom and office/bedroom.
My husband and I are doing as much of the work ourselves that we can to conserve $.

We are going to put in a corner shower. I think we're going to go with a combination of white subway tiles and glass mosaic tiles. I have seen 3x6 subway tiles at Home Depot, are there larger sizes that are common? What do you think would look good in a smallish bathroom in terms of size and pattern?

We plan to only tile the shower area (not the walls behind sink & toilet) and use clear shower doors. You will view the shower while sittling on the toilet, so I want it to look nice.:) I'm going for a kind of relaxed beachy feeling in the room and I love the tiles on this website.

I'd love to hear some of your ideas and suggestions.
