The Annual Sunset Celebration Weekend at the magazine’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California took place on June 1st and 2nd.
It was my first time at the event and, while we’ve been fortunate to have our tile in the actual magazine several times in annual showcase houses and even in an article about our business many years ago, this was our first experience at being included in the Celebration Weekend.
Having never attended before, I really didn’t know what to expect but I couldn’t wait to experience the event and see our tile installed in the exhibition. My husband and I piled the sunscreen on our 9 year old twin boys and drove up North about 45 minutes from our home.
Our first stop was the Re-Imagining the Sunset Home exhibit. Five hot up and coming designers were given inspirations from spaces featured in Sunsets from decades past and asked to re-imagine those spaces for today, while keeping the feel of the original design aesthetics. It was like an IKEA showroom “on steroids” with room upon room of “aha” design choices, including a stellar outdoor area.
Modwalls Lush 1×4 glass weave patterned tile (created by our own in-house interior designer Katelyn Bowman) was used in the shower of the Master Bath. It was selected by designer Vanessa DeVargas of the popular blog Turquoise-LA.
Here’s a collage of the tile and some other standouts from our tour of the Re-Imagining the Sunset Home exhibit:
We were honored and thrilled to see the fantastic installation of one of our newest product lines!
After touring the home we spent the rest of the afternoon in wonder at all of the sights and sounds that living in the West has to offer. Tops on our list were the many Foods, Wines and Garden ideas we saw and sampled. The kiddos had a blast too. There was even a rock climbing wall and more for the kid in all of us! Here are some shots of just a few of our favorite things:
I’d highly recommend attending this annual event whenever you can from wherever you are. We’ll be back that’s for sure!

Holy moly, we are pumped about this Designer Spotlight! We’re talking crazy excited, doing a happy-dance, jump-kick-into-the-splits type of feeling. And why, you ask? Well, that would be because of the super sleek set of photos we received from ultra-cool Playhouse Design Group out of Seattle,Washington. Scroll down and let your eyes feast on the majesty. Warning: These delicious photos will stuff you with delight; you’ll need to walk it off afterward.
You would think after being in the biz this long, and having already built a rockin’ tile gallery, that we might not have the same enthusiasm we used to for tile photos. Well, the truth is that even if we are a little jaded at times, this work is entirely different. Playhouse Design Group has created original, inspiring spaces executed with the highest-quality craftsmanship. The finished product is gorgeous, genuinely unique and has left us…
