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:
25% Bright White
20% Dry Ice
4% Cool Breeze

“Dew” it aww-natural per modwalls. :)
Our ModRocks™ Recycled Glass Pebbles are an extremely unique, 100% post-consumer recycled glass tile.
These cloudy clear dew-drop-sized pebbles reflect light and surrounding colors beautifully. To create this tile, recycled glass is tumbled with low heat until smooth glass pebbles are the result. The pebbles are then mesh-mounted for easy installation and sold by the square foot for $25.95. Here’s an amazingly gorgeous installation on our houzz page.

We love a tile blend.
It’s kind of our “thing,” and for years we’ve been stocking rockin’ tile blends in our Brio® vitreous glass tile line, our Lush® glass tile line, our ModDotz™ porcelain penny round tile collection, and we’ve been offering custom tile blends with our Brio® tile so our fabulous customers can create the tile blend of their dreams.
We recently launched our first ceramic tile collection and we’ve been so thrilled that the majority of our customers have choose to create blends!
Our 2×8 ceramic subway tiles are sold by the square foot and our customers can purchase as many square feet as they’d like. We have seven colors in-stock and any talented tile installer can turn those individual colors into a completely custom ceramic tile blend.
We also carry ceramic “Plus” Mosaic tiles and we offer a “Regulated Mix” of the three colors we stock. This unique blend has been hot hot HOT with our retail customers and designers alike.
Take a look at the sweet installation photos we’ve received so far:
So what do you think… are ceramic tile blends your new favorite?!
modwalls tile + Playhouse Design Group = A match made in design heaven
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 completely awestruck.
