Design runs in Alexandra Becket‘s blood—her grandfather, architect Welton Becket, was responsible for some of the most iconic buildings in Los Angeles, including the Capitol Records building, the Music Center and the Beverly Hilton. Alexandra Becket got her start as a textile designer and has had her wall hangings, paintings and home accessories shown at galleries around her LA hometown. In 2010 she and her husband, Greg Steinberg launched ModOp Design, a home renovation company.
One of their newest projects, in LA’s Beverly Grove neighborhood, is a sensitively restored mix of old and new. And, it’s near and dear to us at Granada Tile—they covered a bathroom floor in cement tile in our Echo Collection’s Sofia tile design.
A Spanish-style charmer, the house still had many of its original details intact but certainly needed updates here and there. In particular, the couple gave the bathroom a substantial makeover, with elements both contemporary and vintage-inspired. There’s a glass-walled shower and of-the-moment, custom-built vanities. Then there are the original windows, which they painstakingly restored, the claw-foot tub, the period-perfect light fixtures and the subway tile lining the walls—but done in a chic sage. The cement floor tiles, in our Sofia pattern, add color and Spanish-style flavor to match the rest of the house.
Granada Tile is so pleased to be a part of this tile installation. Keep checking back for more new tile pictures featuring our concrete tiles.
