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.

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.

Here at Oceanside Glasstile, we’re always thinking, “Wow! That gown!

Perhaps it's our SoCal coming out, but we are head over heels for this boho Valentino gown Claire Danes chose for her walk down the red carpet.  We imagined her bathroom would be sophisticated with the perfect touch of dimensional tile as the focal point. Lori Gentile designed the bathroom using Lune in Truffle Irid and Truffle Non-Irid.

We simply couldn't resist that glitz that Dakota Johnson chose with her Chanel gown. The perfect pairing? The Red Rock Pool project that was done with over 200,000 pieces of sparkling Tessera mosaics.
