Need Some Eichler Inspiration?

August 6, 2012 at 4:31 pm Leave a comment

Eichler Homes are distinctively known for their amazing Mid-Century modern style (which is probably why we and so many others still love them so much)!!!

Little Eichler history (per Wikipedia):  Between 1950 and 1974, Joseph Eichler’s company, Eichler Homes, built over 11,000 homes in nine communities in Northern and Southern California. They all came to be known as Eichlers or an Eichler.  During this period, Eichler became one of the nation’s most influential builders of modern homes. The largest contiguous Eichler Homes development is ‘The Highlands’ in San Mateo, built between 1956 and 1964.    Basically, Eichler defined what “California Modern” really is or what it’s perceived to be.  Read more Eichler history here.

On a recent browsing sesh on Pinterest, we found a link to a great site featuring our Brio tile in one of our customers’ gorgeous Eichler residence.  All photos are courtesy of Hunter Lewis Wimmer of redneckmodern.com.  We hope you are inspired as much as we are by this stunning post-mod home!

This is what the homeowner Mary-Peyton said:

“We spent HOURS on the custom mix configurator (Modwalls Tile Blender). The floors in the  kitchen are black and in the dining area they are grey. There is a ton of wood in the house so we wanted to include all those colors to tie it together. Throw in some mid-century orange, turquoise and apple green and we were good to go. I wish we had more wall space to show off the tile!”

Because we love this Brio blend so much, we wanted to share Mary’s perfect custom blend recipe:
