The gig: Sean Gildea, 48, is president of Oceanside Glasstile. Since its founding in 1992, "before recycling was really happening," Gildea said, the firm has used large amounts of recycled glass to make tiles for kitchens, baths, swimming pools and fireplaces. A Tijuana factory employs 290 people, and an additional 40 workers are at company headquarters in Carlsbad. The niche: The company's tiles are sold mainly through third-party showrooms across the U. S. and in more than 20 other countries. The company provides design consulting services for its clients, many of whom are interior decorators, and has online programs in which customers can mix shapes, textures, sizes and colors of tile into thousands of designs. No suits allowed: Gildea earned a UC Santa Barbara economics degree and had worked for three years as a Deloitte & Touche auditor when his uncle, Boyce Lundstrom, co-founder of Oregon stained-glass specialist Bullseye Glass Co. , called. "He said, 'How would you like to hang up your suit and put on flip-flops and become an entrepreneur. '" Lundstrom and two artists, Jon Stokesbary and Don Pettey, wanted to make glass tiles, a rarity at the time — as long as the work didn't interfere with surfing. "These guys were coming out of the water and playing with clay and blowing glass. " Gildea signed on as the bean counter. Auditing take-aways: "You learn as you go, client to client," he said. "You learn different cultures. I liked the atmosphere at some where everyone worked hard and they were leaders in the industry, but they did it in a way that was fun and relaxed. Hearst Castle: In 1995, Oceanside Glasstile was hired to replace parts of the lavish cobalt and gold mosaic glass tile at the indoor Roman Pool at William Randolph Hearst's estate on the Central California coast. The company had never produced mosaic tile, and it took nine months to match the texture and color of the Italian tiles from the 1920s, but the lessons learned resulted in mosaics becoming a major part of the business. "When you're a young upstart you get the business first and then figure out how to do it," Gildea said. Crash crisis: "August of 2008 was our best month ever," he said. "Then in September, we got caught up in the complete failure of the business world. The Great Recession sent annual. Source: www.latimes.com
This three-story, six-bedroom home in Ditmas Park , one of many very un-city-like standalone houses south of Prospect Park, just hit the market for $1. 985 million. According to the listing, it was built in 1907, but it's apparent from the accompanying photographs that it was renovated relatively recently.

hile the house was good-size, the rooms of this Canton home had little connection to one another, says interior designer Tracy Parkinson. “Rooms were small and closed off and the house was dark because it was broken up into so many disjointed spaces. ” When the. homeowners decided to renovate, the objective was to make the main living spaces feel brighter and more open and they asked Parkinson to bring their ideas to fruition. Parkinson collaborated with contractor Robert Way, who removed the walls separating the kitchen, living, and dining rooms. “Where before those had all been separate spaces, they were now joined to create one big open room,” says Parkinson. Windows were added and the ceilings, which are low, were painted high-gloss white, which helps bounce light around the space. Several new sources of light were added: In the kitchen, recessed lighting and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures by the sink that can be positioned to illuminate different spots now offer a brighter outlook. Continue reading below. To promote an airy feel and flow, walls are painted Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and trim and cabinetry are white. The absence of upper cabinets in the kitchen adds to the airy appeal and helps the distinct areas feel connected to one another. “Since the cabinets were custom made we could be very specific about the size of each cabinet, each one was designed exactly for what was being stored in it,” says Parkinson. Kitchen Parkinson had the white subway backsplash tile installed all the way up to the ceiling. “Since the ceilings are low there wouldn’t have been a lot of wall space between the ceiling and the backsplash if we’d done it the usual way,” she says. “Doing it like this gives the illusion of a higher ceiling. ” Counters are granite. the three metal stools, painted chartreuse, at the peninsula add a little pop. An alcove was specifically designed to suit three tall shelf and drawer units from Ballard Designs, which store glassware and serving pieces. The farmhouse-style table and chairs from Restoration Hardware have a rustic appeal. In contrast, Parkinson selected a chandelier of glass globes with stainless steel arms. “To balance the rusticity of the farm table, I want the light to feel very modern,” she says. Living Area New Mission-style windows throughout add an appealing architectural detail. “The house doesn’t have crown molding or other striking details so the. Source: www.bostonglobe.com
