Default Design advice

My bathroom is the definition of ugly. Black carpet and pink tile shower and wood paneling on the wall. This has been a sore spot of the house for me since I got the house but the price was right.
now here is the old original setup.

that shower head is at no higher then 5 ft 7 in so that makes it a pain to shower if you are 6 ft like me.
A little DIY plumbing later and the shower head is almost a ft higher now and is good where it is. Problem is that the the water splashes up and hits above the tile.
After some looking and stumbling on a clearance deal here is the tile that I was able to get.

The big Tile is for the floor and the small tiles will be for the shower but it has been brought to my attn that I should have the big one as a pattern breaker. the question is what design looks the best and if there is a design different from what is shown post it up for consideration.

It is awesome when you get 8 boxes of tile for less then what they wanted to charge retail for one of those said boxes.
