River rock tile in bathroom

I've been searching the threads, and I can't seem to find anyone who has done river rock tile in the bathroom.
I would like to put some in- faux rocks of course!! It comes on a mesh background, thereby making it flexible. Am I correct in reading that there is silicone based grout that would additionally allow for the tiles to flex a little?

Has anyone ever tried this?

One of the appealing things about aluminum Airstreams is their low weight. This makes them easier to tow and saves on gas. I'd be reluctant to put in anything that adds unnecessary weight.

Add something - take something out...

A good faux painter could airbrush and texturize perhaps 80% of the clinical looking walls to match the 20% you embellished with the 3D variety of wall covering

I omitted the very important sentence "on the floor." With the design I have in mind, we're only talking 6 tiles or so.
