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!)

New Colors Bring Home Island Vibes

 

Enveloped in the warm ocean breeze, toes wiggling in the soft sand, gazing out over the waves to the horizon, the natural elements of Hawaii create a place of serenity. Standing on the shore the eye follows rolling jungle hills and clear skies onto warm sands and vibrant tropical waters. The newest colors and blends in the Oceanside Glasstile collection embody the serenity of Hawaii’s natural landscape and evoke a sense of peace and calm, transforming any space into a little piece of paradise.

“When creating the new colors we wanted to broaden the range of two complimentary spectrums, allowing for softer gradient transitions,” reflects Oceanside Glasstile Designer Cathy Aroz, “The three new colors are the result of playing with hues and shades of popular colors Clear, Bondi, and Truffle.” Looking at these three new additions together, Oceanside Glasstile’s creative team was reminded of the beauty and depths of a tropical paradise and wanted to pay tribute to the spirit of Hawaii by using Hawaiian names Nalu, Kai and Koa for the colors and Puna, Kalani and Mauna to describe three new blends created with these colors.

Nalu is Hawaiian for wave; one of Hawaii’s many seductions, these perfect curls, swirling hues of blue, create the ultimate inspiration for any ocean lover looking to add a piece of the sea to their space. In Hawaiian the word Kai means ocean. The depths and vastness of the sea remind us of the expanse of the world and bring a sense of perspective and calm to everyday life. Koa is a type of tree native to the Hawaiian islands. Its dark wood has been a popular material for centuries; used to build canoes and surfboards, Koa wood is a valuable, timeless resource symbolizing the importance of preserving natural resources so they can be enjoyed for generations to come.

These colors were used with our existing palette to form three new color blends. Puna is Hawaiian for fresh water or spring, natural water welling up from the depths to refresh the body and soul. In Hawaiian Kalani signifies Heavens. This blend is sure to transport you to a tropical sanctuary – imagine feeling the expanse of the beautiful sky, its warm sultry breeze and a mind as calm as the lulling sea. The blend Mauna – meaning mountain, highlights the rich color of Koa. The blend of colors is inspired by the highest point in Hawai’i, Mauna Kea – the brilliance of the earth teamed with light kisses of snow and ice create a stunning balance of warms and cools that make the perfect backdrop for any space.

Muse Collection, Interlude Gradient inspired by Mauna. Colors from top to bottom: Platinum Irid, Koa Irid, Truffle Irid

 

Each blend is a thoughtful culmination of some of Oceanside Glasstile’s most popular colors. Here are the colors and finishes featured in each new blend:

  • Puna: Infinite (Irid, Matte), Platinum (Irid), Nalu (Irid) and Kai (Irid)
  • Kalani: Bondi (Irid), Dove (Irid), Kai (Irid), Silverlight (Irid)
  • Mauna: Koa (Irid), Platinum (Irid), Truffle (Irid)

Nalu, Kai and Koa, Puna, Kalani and Mauna invite you to experience the tranquility of the islands in your own home. Whether used in a pool water line, along shower walls, in the kitchen, a powder room, or entry way, these colors and blends transform any space into a place of serenity and balance. Play with the spirit of Hawaii online with our blend tool and at your nearest showroom.

Oceanside Glasstile’s Divine Intervention

ANTIQUE MIRROR FEATURES HEAVENLY ALLURE

Carlsbad, CA – August, 2016 – Oceanside Glasstile gets ethereal this summer with three additional Antique Mirror colors delivered straight from the heavens. With inspiration from the sun god himself to the depths of Neptune’s kingdom, Oceanside Glasstile applies otherworldly allure to their Devotion color palette. Additionally a new pattern is brought to Devotion’s fold taking inspiration from the salty seashore and translating it into stunning home décor. Prepare to get lost in the stars or swim for sunken treasure during your next design odyssey.

Devotion is no stranger to bold color, glittering movement or intricate details. When the question arose to add additional antique mirror options to the color palette, In-house Designer Cathy Aroz enthusiastically responded, “I really love working with the antique mirrors. Each color shines its own personality into the design. Some patterns need just a touch of mirror to bring a little fire to the project while others can go bolder and bigger creating an element of drama that will literally take your breath away.” The three new additions Helios, Astral and Nocturne are set to do just that.

Devotion’s Cathedral pattern is seraphic with a touch of Astral.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Helios, named after the former Greek God of the sun, explodes with sunbursts and solar flares arcing across a field of bronze. While Astral, reminiscent of the moon’s reflection on the ocean’s surface takes the cooler side of the color palette with its sultry silver splashes set against ripples of navy blue. And last, but certainly not least, Nocturne, true to its name, evokes the majesty of a clear starry night sky. With options like a 6” x 12” micro-beveled field (available in Astral and Nocturne) or the flexibility of custom design with Devotion’s patterns, these new colors will have the trumpets sounding the glory that is your residential or commercial project.

‘She sells, sea shells’ is the summer mantra for the Devotion Collection as a new Scallop pattern is introduced to the family. “Scallop is a classic pattern which has seen a big resurgence in the design world,” Cathy Aroz explains. So it is only fitting that Oceanside Glasstile add this classic shape to their offering but not without it’s own modern twist. “Our art glass can have so much movement,” Cathy details, “I wanted to keep the lines simple with just a subtle layer to open up the possibility to play with color and depth.” This new pattern is the perfect opportunity to create a beautiful space with bold color selection and placement.

The Newest Blue of all the Hues – YInMn

There is a brand new shade of blue that was just stumbled upon through a chemis-tastrophe and it’s absolutely BLUE-tiful! Scientists discovered the color accidentally mixing Yttrium, Indium and Manganese together at 2000 degree F.

new-blue-YInMn-sparks-creative-color-application-with-glass-tile

They’ve dubbed the color YInMn Blue. What makes it so cool? Besides the fact that it’s blue . . . The pigment’s crystal structure keeps it from fading, even when exposed to oil or water. Now it’s being used in sketches, paintings and it’s even being considered for rooftops as a solution to keep buildings cooler.

 So to throw it up to the scientist of the YInMn creation, we celebrate the beauty of blue in all of its tiled glory.

Oceanside Glasstile + Islandstone Debut New Collection

Friendship, Brotherhood… Kinship.

glass-tile-and-stone-tile-by-the-best-US-companiesCarlsbad, CA – April, 2016 – Collaboration is key in 2016 and true to that trend Oceanside Glasstile and Island Stone launch their new marriage of glass and stone.

Anchored in beach culture and driven by a passion to create beautiful designs, the two companies pair the best of their offerings to create one stunning collection. Using four natural stones – grey sandstone, mint sandstone, silver quartzite and white marble – Oceanside Glasstile adds their molten magic to the union. The result? A beautiful Kinship of stunning stone and jewel like glass that will have you wanderlust for all corners of the great Pacific.

Drawing inspiration from the coastal bluffs and epic point breaks of these kindred spirit’s backyards, Kinship’s Crescent piece has inspired two new patterns. Converge features a gentle cascade of pieces, while Lineage mimics the mild rise and fall of an ocean’s swell.

Fully customizable with the entire Oceanside Glasstile palette, the Converge and Lineage patterns will also feature mint sandstone, grey sandstone, and silver quartzite.

Inspired by the subtle sand dunes of Indonesia’s cascading beaches, the Wedge piece offers an understated dimension with its gentle slopes and rounded edges. With two new fully customizable patterns, Origin and Unison stand in opposition. Where Origin offers a random pattern, Unison offers harmony through a timeless linear placement.

Whatever your design goals may be, the new Origin and Unison patterns are available in the entire Oceanside Glasstile color palette, as well as, white marble, silver quartzite or grey sandstone.

Kinship’s third and final new pattern, Abode, is a nod to the timeless nature of an offset brick. Featuring a 1 1/4” x 4 1/8” mosaic rectangle, Abode is fully customizable with all four new stones and the entire Oceanside Glasstile color palette. Abode captures your eye through free-flowing movement of glass to stone, providing added flexibility to this collections design opportunities.

“Cheers!” It’s the first word Oceanside Glasstile products hear before beginning their journey to up-cycled glory! Each year they melt more than 2 million pounds of post-consumer bottle glass.

The result – a gem-like substance crafted into stunning glass tile. They continuously strive for improvements in energy efficiency, and maintain a closed loop manufacturing process where they re-melt all of their own glass trimmings. Manufacturing innovative products with a sustainable process is an important business value, but . . . that’s just where the fun begins. Encouraged by the leadership of the company, Oceanside Glasstile employees support all kinds of causes both near and far. Embracing social responsibility, they find joy in restoring orphanages, building schools, planting new trees and collaborating with the generation of tomorrow. Both home and commercial designs will get a dose of good vibes when they incorporate this environmentally-aware, socially-responsible product into their work-in-progress.
