Meet BASIS by Modwalls Tile.
Modwalls’ founder Rebecca Lonergan designed our new American made ceramic tile collection to meet our clients’ need for cool floor and wall tile that works in residential and commercial environments, both indoor and out.
Hefty 10mm thick handmade ceramic tiles are available in 32 gorgeous glaze colors with both matte and glossy finishes.
Unique 6×12 large hexagons and 8″ triangles have a modern Modwalls twist with slightly rounded points.
Says Rebecca: “I’m currently designing my own master bathroom remodel and BASIS is just what I want for the floor. It’s tough for me to choose just one color, so I’m not going to! I’m thinking of a random mix of these 7 matte shades using our large-and-in-charge elongated hexagons.
Perhaps I’ll narrow it down to 3. I always like to use odd numbers when blending colors. An odd number of colors is more visually appealing than even. When it is even- your eye tends to want to see a pattern. Odd numbers shake things up a bit, in a good way!
Now to choose the right shower tile, knowing that the floor will be the star of the show. Perhaps our Lush 3×6 glass subway tile in a complimentary color? This could take a while…”
2×2 color chip samples are in stock and available free to the trade and at a nominal cost to retail customers. Once tile is ordered it is made in the USA and shipped in just 2-3 weeks.
6×6 Plus design is equal parts classic and modern.
Rounded edged 6×12 subway tile are another innovate modern shape.
Strike tiles are fun and mod!

What does a life look that is designed with love? Margaret inherited her mother’s house with the words, “Make this house a home.” Margaret is finding out what that means.
“Everyone needs a sanctuary.” – The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
(Continued) Margaret dreamed last night that she was floating through her home and in every room was a different person and a different color. Her dad (orange) was in the living room reading the newspaper, chomping on his pipe that he had quit smoking, but liked to have on hand anyway.
Her mom (yellow) was on the phone in the kitchen flipping through her calendar.
Margaret floats down the hall to her bedroom, which, in the dream, is still decorated circa 1985. She sees a young Margaret applying Diva Red toenail polish while listening to Kate Bush sing Running Up That Hill on her record player.
She keeps floating through her home and finds her ex-boyfriend, Sam (green) in a room that her house doesn’t actually contain. In that room, is a draft table. His back is to her and he is intently drawing a picture of a tree whose roots form a man’s body reaching deep into the earth. The trunk rises from the roots, stretching into branches which form a woman’s body.
Margaret continues floating. She sees her friends, Toni and Ray, (teal) in a nursery playing with their newborn baby; she sees her neighbor Reese (Milk White and Grey) in the bathroom, sitting on the edge of the bathtub, crying over the loss of his wife.
And then she sees a new room. A room of grace and light. It feels like a part of her. A part of her that also radiates in all the people that she loves. It is That Which Exists in all beings. It is also the core of her home. The heart. She enters the room. That is when Margaret wakes up. And wakes up to a calm that she hasn’t felt in years.
Her kitchen remodel is finished. Reese helped her install the colorful Brio glass tile backsplash that she designed on the tile company’s website. He turned her on to the eco-friendly wood floor that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® whose motto is “Forests for All Forever.” Reese’s buddy Ken introduced her to John McDonald, the owner of Semihandmade, an innovative company that makes one-of-kind craftsman-style doors for Ikea kitchen cabinets. John’s team helped her pick out the exact doors to complement her new tile and floors.
Margaret’s kitchen is pretty much perfect. Ever her retro fridge is perfect, from its fern green color to what’s inside it: red, yellow, and green bell peppers, a violet and ivory
striped graffiti eggplant, and a carton of heirloom eggs from the farmers market that are different shades! Who knew?! Margaret’s world has exploded in color.
Now in waking life, with her feet firmly planted on her kitchen floor, she sees that her home has become a sanctuary. Her friendships, new and old, are a sanctuary. Her mother’s parting words “make this house your home,” became a sanctuary as they guided Margaret out of her mourning back into life. Everything that has led her to this moment was, in one way or another, a sanctuary. “Thank you,” says Margaret.
Francis, her cat, gazes at her from the kitchen table. Reese mows his lawn next door. The sun streams in through the kitchen window. And the world of color vibrates “thank you.”
This is the ninth installment in a series about aspirational living. Micheline Auger is a New York-based writer who loves all things Modwalls.

The episode Fireplace Fiasco aired on HGtv nationwide last Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 and will re-air this Saturday, June 16th, 2012 at 4:30 ET. Set your dvr’s to record if you missed it because it features our very own Lush® glass subway tile, designed by Rex Ray Studio, as the finished kitchen backsplash!!! We always knew this tile would end up in some cool locales and this kitchen definitely exceeds our expectations. 🙂
Here’s what HGtv has to say about this surprising episode(!):
“Sometimes it’s what’s behind the walls that makes all the difference. When John and Anthony take a look at Joel and Maria’s kitchen, the first thing that stands out is an unusually thick wall. After a little exploratory demolition they discover an incredible hidden fireplace which completely changes their original design. But as construction progresses, the fireplace they fell in love with becomes their biggest nightmare. Will this hearth be the centerpiece of the home, or will the whole job go down in flames?”
Here’s the BEFORE…
And here is the AFTER!!!
We can only imagine how thrilled the homeowners must be to now come home to such a gorgeous, light, and modern kitchen with some flair of the unexpected!
