Jimmy Reed Designs, Installs Bisazza Glass Mosaic Pool & Spa for Paul Mitchell Heir
Jimmy Reed, president of Rock Solid Tile, Inc., custom-designed the infinity spa coping and including the zero-edge main pool, flawlessly installed over 1,600 square feet of Bisazza glass mosaic tiles as the finished surface for the new signature exterior design element at the private estate of Angus Mitchell, son of the late founder of Paul Mitchell branded hair products. With his own successful career in the family business in high-gear, “Angus M” needed a full-landscape makeover for the luxury property he shares with his wife Michelle Mitchell in California’s famous Pacific Palisades neighborhood.
Angus M and his guests now enjoy the show-stealing, glass mosaic tile overflow infinity spa and zero-edge pool that Reed meticulous designed and perfectly installed in a gorgeous custom pattern from Bisazza.
"The workmanship by Jimmy (Reed) in the pool and spa is by far the best I've ever seen,” said Angus M. “Day or night, but especially on night’s with a full moon, I gaze upon the pool and the craftsmanship of the tile work and think to myself - it was worth every penny. "
Reed, widely recognized as one of the very top installers of glass mosaic tile water features in the United States, earned this reputation by flawlessly completing one perfect pool and spa project after another for an ever-growing list of Hollywood stars and A-list celebrities. For the Angus Mitchell project, Reed created the concept and design for the raised overflow infinity spa as well as the interior dimensions of the pool, including the steps, benches, and the plumb walls that provide perfect square transitions.
Interior designer Johnna McHugh stepped outside to integrate the tile design of the water feature with her vision and color scheme for the rest of the large-scale remodeling project, selecting the “Damasco Opale” pattern from Bisazza in visually stunning black and blue ¾” x ¾” (20mm) glass mosaic tiles perfectly installed by Reed.
“Rock Solid Tile specializes in glass mosaic tile pools and spas because we love the challenge each installation presents,” said Reed. “I personally get very involved with each and every project. Glass mosaic tile water features are absolutely stunning and always considered ‘the jewel’ of the property. It is an extremely intricate and precise process that requires experience and extreme attention to detail. Our goal at Rock Solid Tile has always been to satisfy every one of our clients, and walk away from each project knowing that we were an integral part of creating something of beauty that will last a lifetime.”
