It's a recycled glass tile that I found at It was a few years ago and I don't know if they make it anymore. I'm the designer, just happened to see you question!

The paint color is "radiate" by C-2 Color Collection, and it's beautiful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cons: There are very few cons to recycled glass, with the exception of the high cost of some products. Do your research — recycled glass tableware is often reasonably priced, but recycled glass building materials can get expensive.
