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!”

We’re still 100% in love with this design!
Take a look at our tile at the Glen Oaks Big Sur Lodge in Big Sur, CA…

Originally posted on Modwalls Designer Notes:

It isn’t very often when we look at a place and say, “This is exactly how I want my home to look.” And the fact that the spectacular spot features modwalls® tile?  Yep, we are officially floored.

We could not be more pleased to see modwalls® tile in the Glen Oaks Big Sur Lodge, recognized as one of the most romantic hotels in the world in the February 2011 issue of Travel + Leisure Magazine. The grounds were recently overhauled and completely revamped by super-talented interior designer Steve Justrich of Justrich Design in San Francisco, CA.

Built as an adobe motor lodge in 1957, the hotel is unique in that its smaller, quainter grounds are appealing to a younger market that can’t put up the dough for the $1000 per night alternatives in the area.  But this place certainly isn’t lacking: Glen Oaks is ranked #1 on Trip…

Hot Little Batches of ModDotz Porcelain Penny Round Tiles

ModDotz™ Porcelain Penny Rounds are one of our favorite tile lines, and some of our best selling products. These little Dotz™ are so fun; they make any space POP with their bubbly, cute and curvy texture!

We order small, artisan batches of these tiles in colors we think are hot at the moment and these little puppies usually sell out pretty quickly. We try our best to keep our signature colors, “Marshmallow” (white) and “Grey” in stock at all times, but sometimes they just fly off the shelf before we know it!

We’re getting a new shipment of ModDotz™ in early April and we CANNOT WAIT. We’ll be receiving ModDotz™ Marshmallow, ModDotz™ Grey and ModDotz™ New Navy in this upcoming order. We were trying to get a fresh, limey green, but the color didn’t pass our quality check. High-quality tile is super important to us, so we would rather wait a little longer to get the best color tile we can rather than push out a product we’re less than 100% proud of.

Below are some photos of some of the different colored ModDotz™ we’ve carried over the years, for your viewing pleasure. You can see that we move through these dye lots like hot cakes, so if you like what we’ve got, get it while the gettin’s good! And by that we mean while the tile is in stock and available. = )

Say “hey” to some of our fave ModDotz™ pix:

Modwalls Tile in Katie Brown’s Gorgeous Amagansett Home – Part 3

Happy Friday, friends!

Today we’re showing you more of Katie Brown’s stunning revamped Amagansett home and this time we’re sharing her sweet daughter Prentiss’s bathroom.

Katie hand picked modwalls® Lush® glass subway tile “Driftwood” for her master bathroom (read our blog and see photos here), and she choose our classic white glass subway tile Lush® 3×6 Cloud for her daughter Meredith’s bathroom (we posted photos on a previous blog, which you can view here).

For her daughter Prentiss’s bathroom, Katie decided to go with our popular color Lush® Surf in our 1×2 brick joint mini subway tile size. We also carry this watery, aqua green Lush® color in a traditional 3×6 size, and an extra large format 4×12 subway size.  And we recently rolled out the color in our Lush® 1×4 size, which is a modwalls®-only size and can’t be found anywhere else.

Say “hi” to one beautiful bathroom:

We just love her style!

Hello, Retro

What do you get when you salvage a “Ming Green” sink and tub and add modwalls’ tiles?

You get one retro-licious bathroom.

Check out this magnificentness:

Lush 1x2 subway Santa Monica tile countertop by modwalls

The too-cute countertop tile is our Lush® 1×2 Santa Monica subway tile blend.  So yummy.

And then there’s the tub and the super cool custom tile design our customer created with our Lush® 1×2 Santa Monica blend plus our Lush® 3×6 glass subway tiles in the colors (from top of the tub to bottom): Vapor, Breaker, Pool, Surf and Seagrass.

This sweet bathroom looks like its straight out of the pages of our new favorite book, Pantone’s The 20th Century of Color.

See what we mean?

Navy Lovin’

Elle Decor sounded the call on this new blue color craze and WE ARE SO IN.

Trend Alert: Navy Blue proclaims, “Forget black and beige. The newest neutral is crisp, cool, and forever classic,” and modwalls® couldn’t agree more!

We dreamed up our own little concoction in our version of the color and we plan on debuting it with our next set of modwalls® ModDotz ™ this spring.

And here it is….

Ta-Da!!  ModDotz ™ “New Navy” porcelain penny rounds.

modwalls ModDotz New Navy blue porcelain penny round

Ok, ok, we know, not much to see here, but this is just a taste.  We’re just trying to prep your pallet for this savory color.

Here’s an example of one of our previous versions of blue ModDotz ™ penny rounds

modwalls ModDotz blue porcelain penny rounds

Rockin’, right?  And we’re pretty certain our “New Navy” will be WAAAAAAAAY BETTER.  Just try to wrap your brain around that.

We’ll be serving these babies up right around the end of March 2012.  Contact anytime for more details.
