Are 24"x12" wall tiles too big for a standard 5' bathtub surround?

We fell in love with some large travertine tiles but I'm worried that they may not be appropriate to the size of our bathroom. The large-sized wall tile examples I see online are all in big rooms with soaker tubs or oversized walk-in showers. I can't tell if this is because large tiles aren't suitable to "real world" bathroom sizes or if these floor-to-ceiling applications just showcase the tiles better.

We're renovating a 6'x9' bathroom with a tub at the far end of the room (in a three-sided surround with a window in the middle). We're updating the look to boxy-modern with very muted colours and textures.
Just looking for completely subjective opinions/impressions. Right now, it doesn't seem crazy but decorating/visualization has never been a strength of mine.
