Putting the LUSH in Luscious :)

Are you in the process of selecting the perfect Lush® color for your project?

Selecting the right glass subway tile color can be difficult  - especially from a computer screen!  We find ourselves regularly attempting to describe the nuances of similar Lush® colors over the phone, and trust me, it’s not easy!

In an effort to help make this process a little easier, we’ve taken these pictures to compare the subtle variations of our most popular Lush® colors.

Enjoy!

Modwalls_Cameo Almond Driftwood Dune Reef Taupe

  • Cameo is our latest neutral addition.  We would describe this as a rich, creamy color.  It evokes a real warmth – like coffee with lots of creamer in it.  Yummmmmy!
  • Almond is slightly more golden-beige than Cameo.  Goes well with lots of earth-tone granites.
  • Driftwood is a gray-ish beige color with a faint hint of green.  It’s definitely the chameleon of our neutral colors and tends to go with all sorts of materials and design aesthetics.
  • Dune is the most golden of our neutral colors. We often say it’s more peachy/beige/buttercream-y.
  • Reef is a rich brown color…like a freshly roasted coffee bean.  In some lighting conditions, it appears to have a hint of green.
  • Taupe is a gorgeous warm gray color.  (One of my personal favorites actually :)).

Cloud thru Bluebell

  • Cloud is our white-est white possible in our Lush® line.  Made of clear glass, this is truly a white glass subway tile (which we know is hard to find!)
  • Breaker is a beautiful light and bright medium aqua blue color.
  • Vapor is our most pale, watery blue color.
  • Sky is a true sky-blue color.  Think of how the sky looks on a clear and bright Spring day.  A very cheerful shade of blue…
  • Rain  is tranquil blue gray.  It reminds me of a lighter shade of denim as well…or indigo.
  • Bluebell is a super fun and vivid periwinkle-blue color.

Cloud thru Peacock

  • Pool is a nice balance of aqua + blue together.  It’s more saturated than the previous blue colors above.  Pool Frosted has a softer and somewhat lighter appearance because of the frosted surface finish.
  • Surf has more green than aqua coloring and it’s one of our most popular Lush® colors.  Goes beautifully with a variety of design aesthetics.
  • Seagrass is a more saturated version of Surf.
  • Peacock is a lovely jewel toned turquoise/ blue/ green color.

Cloud thru Inkwell

  • Rain is tranquil blue gray.  It reminds me of a lighter shade of denim as well…or indigo.  
  • Fog Bank is one of our most popular gray colors.  It has a cooler base tone to it so the tile can sometime appear more blue. It’s a very calming color.
  • Storm is a darker gray color.  This also has a cooler base tone to it like our Fog Bank.
  • Taupe is a gray beige color. Warmer by comparison than Fog Bank.
  • Inkwell is a beautiful saturated inky-blue color.

Cloud thru Moss

  • Wasabi is a very wasabi colored green :).  Still bright and vivid, it’s one of our softer looking greens by comparison.
  • Surf has more green than aqua coloring and it’s one of our most popular Lush® colors.  Goes beautifully with a variety of design aesthetics.
  • Bamboo is a fresh medium spring green color.  When comparing to Lemongrass, we say it has less yellow to it.
  • Seagrass is a more saturated version of Surf.  When comparing Seagrass to our other greens, it appears to have more blue in it.  I’d also describe it as a celedon green color.
  • Lemongrass is our most bright and vivid lime-y green color.
  • Peacock is a lovely turquoise/ blue/ green color.
  • Moss is an earthy olive green color.

One last look at all these beautiful colors….

On a Budget? Meet Brio Custom Blends!!!

Brio® Custom Blends Fit Every Budget!

Customizing your kitchen or bathroom gets extremely pricey!  Especially if you’re working within a specific color scheme.

Meet our Brio® Custom Blend Program!  With literally millions of possible glass mosaic color combinations right at your fingertips, you can easily create the right tile blend for your project…Plus, it’s totally budget-friendly and fun to do!!!

How-to Create Your Custom Blend Recipe:

Step 1) Access the blender at: http://www.modwallsblender.com/

arrow

arrow

Step 2)  Select the colors that you’d like to blend by clicking on the Brio® ¾” glass tile images.

The colors will automatically move into the blender after 2 colors have been selected.  Remove any color by dragging it away from the blending area.

If you wish to start over, just click RESET.

arrow

Step 3) Feel free to adjust the color percentage by moving the arrows up and down on each color. (Note: your design must add up to 100%)

arrow

Step 4) Think you reached your desired colored combination?  Click on REMIX to randomly remix the colors. (Note that all of our custom blends are random, not patterned)

arrow

Step 5) Optional, but highly recommended:  Select grout colors to see how this changes the effect of your blend.  The grout colors shown are part of modwalls® StarGlass/ Dimension Urethane Grout collection. Grout is sold separately, but we believe this is the best choice available for any glass tile installation.

arrow

Step 6)  Order Your Custom Blend Sample here.  Be sure to enter your blend recipe on the Customer Comments area – including color names and percentages.  Note:  you will be prompted to enter your recipe on page 2 of checkout.

___________________________

Why should I order a sample?

We strongly encourage creative customers like yourself to order samples of your custom blend – which eliminates any online purchasing woes.  Each computer monitor may slightly distort the true colors and it’s always good to have a sample in-hand.  Btw, samples are about 5″ x 5″ and are not refundable.

Once you have received your sample and are ready to order your Brio® custom blend, simply call us toll-free @ 877-439-9734.  We have real people ready to take your order Monday-Friday from 9am – 5pm Pacific Time.  Please note that there is a 20 sq.ft. minimum order per custom blend.


How is my custom blend assembled?

Since 2005, we proudly and locally outsource our modwalls® custom blend production to the wonderful people at HOPE Services.  HOPE Services is a non-profit organization which employs developmentally and physically disabled adults to do a variety of production work. Their mission is to assist individuals with disabilities to live and participate in their communities – and we LOVE this.

HOPE’s clients are responsible for making each sheet of your custom blend – a true work of art – made with pride and love!  There are currently over 30 HOPE clients dedicated to the modwalls® custom blend production.

Here are some photos of HOPE’s client’s in action:

At Hope Services working on a modwalls Brio Custom Mosaic tile blend
HOPE Services receives our customer’s custom blend recipes on a weekly basis. Each individual Brio® Mosaic Color comes with a paper facing that HOPE soaks off prior to mounting and assembling each blend.  Tiles are then set individually onto plastic grids in a random pattern according to your recipe.  Each completed grid (or 1.15 sq.ft. sheet) is then reviewed for quality control.  Once approved, a plastic film is placed over the top or “face” of the tiles to hold it in place for installation.

This entire process generally takes about 1 week to complete.  Once your blend is complete, we’ll ship it via UPS and email you the tracking number.

Modwalls Press: Dwell Magazine – Bath & Spa Special Issue

“Our first ever Bath & Spa special issue is filled with the latest in bathroom design, from outdoor showers to luxurious personal saunas. Dwell’s editors bring the latest and hottest products for any lavatory and any budget.” -Dwell Magazine

“Capturing San Diego’s beachy, laid-back vibe with just a handful of sun-shining-on-the-Pacific tile colors was Public Architecture and Planning‘s real trick in this charming bathroom.  By relying on a multihued array of small tiles, Public’s principal James Brown credits his clients, Kim and Torrey Lee, with selecting a ‘seamless palette that brought the color and feel of the ocean’ into the home.” 

“The clients requested an open shower with a large tub.  But they asked to be surprised with the design of the entire house.  I hope they jumped!” -Architect James Brown

modwalls® Lush® Weave Patterns, “Ready for my close-up!!!!!”

(**Okay, so we cannot exactly interview our lastest and greatest Lush® patterns per se, but if we did, they would be more than thrilled to be in the center of the spotlight**)

Modwalls WEAVE patterns were created by modwalls one and only in-house Interior Designer, Katelyn Bowman.  When developing this simple, but intriguing pattern for modwalls, Katelyn wanted to create a fresh twist on a tried and true version of an herringbone and chevron pattern using our modern 8mm thick Lush® 1×4 glass tile in our top selling Cloud, Vapor, and Fog Bank colors.

“Geometric patterns are an ever-constant design element – past and present – and there’s beauty in the repetition.  I think this new pattern I designed for modwalls will be a seemless addition to an already fantastic line of products.  Although the pattern is relatively simple, you can install this in many different ways which I’m sure will please many different design aesthetics.” :)

Installing your backsplash tile in this pattern would typically be more labor-intensive and therefore more expensive since your installer would have placed each tile individually (not fun!).

Modwalls addresses this issue by sheeting the pattern in a way that makes installation MUCH easier.  The pattern is pre-set and mesh-mounted with 1/16″ grout joints with interlocking sides.  This tile is ideal for any wall applications including kitchen backsplash tile, bathroom tile, fireplace tile and pool tile. The tile is sold in sheets that measure 0.93 square feet each (just less than one square foot) for $19.95. It can be laid either vertically, horizontally, 45 degree angle, etc.

Here are some more eye-catching images of the Lush® 1×4 Weave!  Enjoy!!!

Inspired By… Surf!!! (And just in time for Summer!)

Modwalls Lush® Surf is available in 5 different sizes.

SURF is up!!!!!

Modwalls Lush® glass subway tile in Surf is most accurately described as a soft, watery aqua green color.  This tranquil color can pair well with a ton of different color combinations and design styles (see install images below).  Available in 5 different sizes:  1″x2 Surf, 1″x4″ Surf, 3×6″ Surf, 6″x 6″ Surf, and 4″x12 Surf.

This glass subway tile is ideal for any wall application including kitchen backsplash tile, bathroom tile, fireplace tile and pool tile.  Basically it’s easy to install in all areas where tile can be present. :)

Here is what a couple happy modwalls customers had to say about the our Lush Surf:

Loved the color!
Christina Meares (Yonkers, NY) 9/17/2010

I was looking for subway tile for months, and after ordering samples and comparing colors, I chose the 1×2 “Surf” and it looks great!

rating rating rating rating rating

happy customer  11/11/2008

I am extremely pleased with the two colors I purchased, surf and stem. The application and resulting look are even better than I imagined. I used the surf as a border against stark white in a seascape guest bathroom, the stem as backsplash over sink and again stove in kitchen. The only problem I see is lack of other areas to use the tiles on. Also I would like to say that the customer service I received from Modwalls was above and beyond the call. I was extremely pleased – keep up the great work. Delyn, TX

We always love some good installation pics!!

Inspired By… Fog Bank

It’s easy to see why our Lush® 4″x 12″ Fog Bank is one of our best sellers!

Here’s what one of our customers Brienne of Tucson, Arizona had to say about it (thanks Brienne!).  I think she summed it up perfectly!

“We had the 4×12 Lush Fog Bank tile installed for our pool at the water line. It is a beautiful and clean modern look. We searched countless sites looking for truly modern pool tile and Modwalls was the only site that had what we were looking for. We debated on color after ordering samples of 5 different tiles. We thought fog bank would end up too grey and a little boring, but it is the perfect color in our space. Sometimes it looks blue, sometimes it looks grey, but it always looks stunning, especially next to the crisp white grout we chose. The tile isn’t cheap, but it is worth every penny for the great quality and the clean modern look it provides!”
