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?

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.

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).
