Tile Installation Photo Journey – Oceanside Glasstile Selected for Modernism Week Christopher Kennedy Compound #VillaGolightly Pool and Spa

Transport yourself to a decadent mid century modern home with photos of this year’s Christopher Kennedy Compound at Villa Golightly. Deemed the “#1 Must See Event of Modernism Week” by the Hollywood Reporter, Villa Golightly featured over 20 of the world’s best designers and luxury home brands, including Oceanside Glasstile. This Modernism Week show house featured tours and special events February 16th through February 27th, 2017.

When Christopher Kennedy and Kelly Golightly approached Oceanside Glasstile to supply tile for their mid century modern show house pool and spa we were thrilled! Both designers are known for creating classy, timeless spaces and events that incorporate the glamorous lifestyles and old school charm of Palm Springs desert living.

Christopher Kennedy Compound Pool Before and After

For the pool waterline and the hot tub tile, the team selected a Muse Collection, 7/8″ x 7/8″ Straight Set Pattern in an Aqua color tri-finish blend. A tri-finish blend combines mosaic glass tiles in each of our three finishes: iridescent, non-iridescent and matte. In honor of the event, Oceanside Glasstile named this pool tile blend “Aqua Golightly.” (If you have never seen Oceanside Glasstile finish options in person, order a sample to see the difference of how each finish shines!)

The final, beautiful waterline glass tile pool and fully tiled spa could not have been completed without the hard work and dedication of our event partners: Tile installation completed by Desert Glass Pools, tile sealer and maintenance products provided by natural Oceancare Products and the tile is available for purchase at our event partner showroom Stone Revolution. For more information about glass tile for water applications and mid century modern design tile inspiration, send an email to modernismweek@glasstile.com. Scroll down to see a photos of the pool and spa tile installation journey.

Your new go-to cleaner – safe enough for the kitchen, tough enough for the garage

You’ve just seen the last of your relatives off to the airport, you plop down on the couch, kick up your feet and take a look around only to realize your home is a disaster.

How could this have happened?

Maybe it was the Christmas Party with 15 of your closest friends and family. Or the New Years Eve bash with your old college roommates.

Is that a merlot stain? How do I get red wine out again?! 

You’re about to dig your bucket of cleaners out from the garage when you remember the gift your eco-conscious Aunt gave you and head for the kitchen instead.

Hmmm… All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser. I guess I’ll give it a shot…



A few dirty rags later, you sit down and take a look around your now spotless home.

Those dried cake batter splatters your nephew made on the cupboard? Clean.

The pasta sauce explosion in the microwave? Spotless.

Soap scum all over the guest bathroom? Non-existent.

All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser even took care of those mystery spots on the carpet. You reflect, in awe that one bottle was able to go from the kitchen to the bathroom to your living room without skipping a beat.

And with enough time to binge watch my DVR. 


Where can I use it?

Everywhere. Like literally anywhere you need to clean. Kitchen, bathroom, pool waterlines, carpet, upholstery and even the oil stains on your garage floor. Have a mess? All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser is your right-hand man.

What can I use it on?

Any water safe surface. Glass, porcelain, ceramic and natural stone tile, grout, agglomerate and stone countertops, cooktops, stainless steel appliances and metal fixtures.

How do I use it?

Spray All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser on a surface and allow to sit for 1 minute*. Gently scrub with a nylon scrub brush or nylon scrub pad, rinse thoroughly with clean water and towel dry. To view the Application and Usage Chart, click here.

*P.S. Always be sure to test All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser in an inconspicuous area!

Why should I use it?

Remember your eco-conscious Aunt? She wouldn’t gift you another generic, off the shelf cleaner chock full of toxic components that pollute our air and water as well as pose health risks to your family. Oceancare’s All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser is a 100% natural, plant-derived, citrus-based alkaline cleaner. Oh, it’s also biodegradable and non-toxic so you know your Aunt’s stoked on that.

Where can I buy it?

At your local Oceancare Dealer or online.
