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:

New Tiles!

We’re always so excited when we receive our large tile orders from our factory, like we did just 2 days ago. They only come a few times a year, so it’s like Christmas!

That really isn’t an over-exaggeration either; we all do a little happy dance in celebration when the goods are being unloaded.

What’s most exciting is when we get brand spankin’ new tiles that we’ve never seen before. We’ve been waiting for these babies for MONTHS, so the anticipation is over-the-top once they arrive!

Here’s a quick look at our new loved ones…

This is modwalls® ModDotz™ “New Navy” blue porcelain penny round tile.

The color is a gorgeous jewel-tone that’s even better than what we expected! It’s a dark blue that’s got a bit of a teal tone and we’re loving it.

We also received a new 3/4″ glass mosaic tile blend to add to our Brio® tile collection.

This is modwalls® Brio® Number Nine mosaic glass tile blend.

We think this blend would be ADORABLE in a children’s bathroom, right?

Don’t ya just love presents? 😉

modwalls on Katie Brown Workshop… Check Out the Video!

Super cool!

Our own modwalls’ Sarah was featured on Cook, Nest, Grow diva Katie Brown’s PBS show Katie Brown Workshop recently and we have a short clip to share.

We’ve been waiting to share this one for a while… !

Sarah had an awesome time at Katie’s Amagansett, NY cottage home, and Katie Brown could not be sweeter.

Check out the video with some great tile-tips including selecting the right tile for your space and a little bit of grout gab.

Inspired By…

On the left is a photo snapped at Big Sur, CA, just 50 miles South of our Aptos-based office.

On the right is our Lush® 1/2×2 Big Sur tile blend, which was inspired by the scene.

Rex Ray Tiles + Typography + Steampunk — We’re Feeling It

Our Rex Ray Studio TYPE 4×12 glass subway tiles are getting a lot of attention these days!

In fact, we’ve got a new batch of these typography-inspired hot commodities in production right now.

And we also noticed they kind of fit into another cool craze: the Steampunk Aesthetic.  Check out a few of the Steampunk pix we’ve gathered– yeah, we’re into it.


A drawing based on Jules Verne’s novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, one of the founders fathers of Steampunk.

The best of both worlds: steampunk typography. MEKKANIKA typeface

So we’re going with it and continuing this collaboration. We’re currently in the process of creating even more totally original tiles based on Rex Ray’s amazing designs.

Rex Ray’s art is just what we like (and what we need).

Have A Little HOPE: modwalls work with our community

We believe that everyone in the world has the right to feel fulfilled and know that their work serves a purpose.

From day 1 it has been one of our business goals to help employ those who may not otherwise have work that is readily available to them.

Since 2005 we have contracted with Hope Services to produce modwalls® Brio® custom glass mosaic tile blends in a local workshop for their developmentally disabled adult clients.  Hope’s Mission is to assist people with developmental disabilities to live and participate in their communities.  We have benefited greatly from the amazing work and attention to detail that Hope’s clients provide in making each of modwalls® custom tile blends a real work of art for our customer’s homes.

Here are just a few photos we’ve received of Hope’s clients in action. They rock!

We’re proud of our partnership and look forward to the next seven years of business together.
