Colibri Design: Artful inspiration... bringing tile to life!
About Colibri Design
Colibri Design offers 23 years of “Premier” building experience reaching from California to Arizona, Sonora and now Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit, where their tile selection and creative flair set them apart from the rest.
In the last decade, their extensive travels throughout Mexico in search of the most exquisite finishing materials has allowed them to build wonderful friendships with the finest tile makers this country has to offer.
Before they partnered in 1998, Marianne Menditto was a tile designer/contractor and Tom Swanson was an arquitect/builder. Since then, they’ve been designing and embellishing homes with wonderful murals, mosaics and sculptures. They do custom BBQs, beach showers, signs, furniture, nichos, beds, tile rugs, floor medallions and of course kitchens and baths in creative combinations of tile, stone, glass & metal.
Their showroom has tile samples from Tom & Marianne’s favorite artisan tile makers from Mexico. They can design your special installations or just give you their expert advice should you wish to design them yourself. Design professionals are welcome. Marianne will also draw up custom murals & decos for production by the various tile makers.
Colibri Design also houses Galeria Colibri, a hand selected treasure trove of home decor, specializing in folk art collected from all over Mexico.Their services extend to offer Interior Designers the perfect venue to select beautiful tiles and create their own designs, with or without their clients, right in their design center. They are commited to provide a diligent service and follow through. They also represent the most reliable handmade tile makers in Mexico in order to insure that the job stays on schedule.
Showroom is open Monday through Saturday from noon until 7pm, but during rainy season we recommend to call ahead to make an appointment.
