The Breezehouse.

This year Sunset Magazine selected the Breezehouse by San Francisco-based green prefab company  Blu Homes.  Nestled hillside in an olive grove in Healdsburg CA, this modular house lives up to its namesake.  Bright and spacious, each room shares a primary color pallet of oranges, blues, reds, yellows, and greens. We were thrilled to be able to add some of our tile selections to the mix. Here’s a peak at some of the Walker Zanger highlights.

Put a Pin it It (8.2)

Blue.  Perhaps the most popular color in the spectrum, it rivals even red for the the gamut of emotions its various  shades evoke.  From the cheerful optimism of a

clear pale blue sky to the dark sultriness of midnight blue this color speaks to us in a

myriad of hues: robin’s egg blue, steel blue, baby blue, french blue, navy blue…the list is simply endless.  It’s no wonder when it came to picking the images for this week post we were hard pressed to choose our favorites. Here are just a few stand outs from our Pinterest board “So Blue…”
