Tidy – chapter 4: design a life with love

What does a life look like that is designed with love? Margaret inherited her mother’s house with the words, “Make this house a home.” Margaret is finding out what that means.

love tiles

(Continued from Chapter 3) “Where have you been?” asks Toni.  In the basement. That’s where Margaret found herself after throwing out the box of donuts, brewing a fresh pot of coffee and doing the week-old dishes. Her laundry is done and, truth be told, she tossed out half of it after reading in the Tidy book that you should only keep the things you love. When she read those words, her heart simultaneously leapt and sank.

Kitchen Nook with Subway Tile

Francis’ Nook with Subway Tile

The idea of surrounding herself with things she loved excited her, but she didn’t think she had anything that she love loved. And if she went through her stuff one thing at a time and felt for the love – what if she felt nothing?  Because, as you may know by now, she has felt something close to nothing for a long time. Fortunately, that is changing and now she is on the lookout for blessings! And, well… she’s kinda still waiting. 

Francis gazes at Margaret from the kitchen table. He observes that Margaret, like most people (when they’ve become ready), want to receive a big
HELLO! from the universe, and they want to have that big hello on a consistent basis.  Like all the time. And the universe is more than willing to give you a cosmic high-five all the time, because frankly life IS one big cosmic high-five, but if, for 30 – 40 years, you’ve been getting your cosmic high-five from donuts, coffee, TV, people, work, etc., the More Subtle and Sublime Consistent High-Fives might go unnoticed.  You could even call it a cosmic hug, thinks Francis, as he stretches out on the table otherwise known (only to him) as “His Place” or “His Rightly Place.”

He likes to think deep thoughts there.  Deep thoughts about the cosmos, catnip, and how to communicate better with the humans. He likes the kitchen table because it resides in what humans call The Breakfast Nook. In this breakfast nook, there are windows that look upon the world, namely Margaret’s Side Yard.

Francis

Francis, before he lost his ear

When he decided to take Margaret’s domain and make it and its human-dweller his, it wasn’t only because she lived in a Craftsman-style house (which he has a slight preference for), but it was because she never seemed to leave the house. Since he is getting on in feline years, he appreciates this, as he finds sleeping next to a body-warmer the size of Margaret (as difficult as this may be to admit) comforting. She seems to like it too.

He is very interested, or rather, slightly interested in the recent flurry of activity that Margaret has been engaged in. This is new in his experience of Margaret. Just the other day, she revealed to him that the bathroom actually had a floor.  Previously, he had thought it was made of a cloud of colored towels but instead, there was tile. Very nice tile. Francis likes to pride himself on his taste, and although the towel-cloud was more comfortable for sleeping, he finds the tile floor soothing. It fits his sense of decorum.

Francis is a house-worldly cat, and knows a thing or two about dwellings, and particularly dwellings that have life in them, and dwellings that don’t. His thoughts are interrupted by a flash of movement as Margaret throws something into the trash but missed. He pounces.

Moddotz - New Navy

Francis loves Modwalls’ Moddotz – Navy Blue (The basket is also nice to hide in.)

“Get rid of everything,” continues Toni.  “But what if I’m left with nothing?” asks Margaret. She can hear Toni making tea in the background. “You just let go of the stuff you don’t need anymore; and yeah, there might be some growing pains, but you just watch. All kinds of good stuff will start to shine. Good stuff you never even imagined.”

Toni has always been like this, even when her life wasn’t going so great, she always could see the bright side. “It’s like your house,” Toni continues. “You’ve got this amazing house that your mom left you.”  “It’s not really me, though” says Margaret.

One door closes

One of Francis’ favorite sayings

“You can make it you,” answers Toni.  “That house has good bones.” Margaret sighs. She used to describe Sam that way. “He’s got good bones.” And yes, Sam did have good bones, physically-speaking, he was your strong, silent type with the jawline and build to prove it; but when Margaret said that Sam had good bones she meant his structure; his foundation, his core – not all that stuff on the outside (although that didn’t hurt).  She was in love with his bones until his bones walked out the front door a month after her mother died.

“Hello?” says Toni. “Sorry, I was distracted by Francis. He’s attacking my old sock like he’s some kind of ferocious animal. (Francis ignores this comment by the favored yet ignorant human.) “Did you hear what I said, though?” asks Toni. “Yeah. I did. I guess I never looked at this place that way. I need a new pair of glasses.” “Well,” says Toni, “It sounds like you’re getting them.”Micheline

Putting the LUSH in Luscious Glass Tile

Are you in the process of selecting the perfect Lush® glass subway tile color for your project?

Selecting the right  tile color can be difficult  – especially from a computer screen!  We find ourselves regularly attempting to describe the nuances of similar Lush® colors over the phone, and trust me, it’s not easy!

In an effort to help make this process a little easier, we’ve taken these pictures to compare the subtle variations of our most popular Lush® colors.

Enjoy!

Modwalls_Cameo Almond Driftwood Dune Reef Taupe

  • Cameo is our latest neutral addition.  We would describe this as a rich, creamy color.  It evokes a real warmth – like coffee with lots of creamer in it.  Yummmmmy!
  • Almond is slightly more golden-beige than Cameo.  Goes well with lots of earth-tone granites.
  • Driftwood is a gray-ish beige color with a faint hint of green.  It’s definitely the chameleon of our neutral colors and tends to go with all sorts of materials and design aesthetics.
  • Dune is the most golden of our neutral colors. We often say it’s more peachy/beige/buttercream-y.
  • Reef is a rich brown color…like a freshly roasted coffee bean.  In some lighting conditions, it appears to have a hint of green.
  • Taupe is a gorgeous warm gray color.  (One of my personal favorites actually :)).

Cloud thru Bluebell

  • Cloud is our white-est white possible in our Lush® line.  Made of clear glass, this is truly a white glass subway tile (which we know is hard to find!)
  • Breaker is a beautiful light and bright medium aqua blue color.
  • Vapor is our most pale, watery blue color.
  • Sky is a true sky-blue color.  Think of how the sky looks on a clear and bright Spring day.  A very cheerful shade of blue…
  • Rain  is tranquil blue gray.  It reminds me of a lighter shade of denim as well…or indigo.
  • Bluebell is a super fun and vivid periwinkle-blue color.

Cloud thru Peacock

  • Pool is a nice balance of aqua + blue together.  It’s more saturated than the previous blue colors above.  Pool Frosted has a softer and somewhat lighter appearance because of the frosted surface finish.
  • Surf has more green than aqua coloring and it’s one of our most popular Lush® colors.  Goes beautifully with a variety of design aesthetics.
  • Seagrass is a more saturated version of Surf.
  • Peacock is a lovely jewel toned turquoise/ blue/ green color.

Cloud thru Inkwell

  • Rain is tranquil blue gray.  It reminds me of a lighter shade of denim as well…or indigo.  
  • Fog Bank is one of our most popular gray colors.  It has a cooler base tone to it so the tile can sometime appear more blue. It’s a very calming color.
  • Storm is a darker gray color.  This also has a cooler base tone to it like our Fog Bank.
  • Taupe is a gray beige color. Warmer by comparison than Fog Bank.
  • Inkwell is a beautiful saturated inky-blue color.

Cloud thru Moss

  • Wasabi is a very wasabi colored green :).  Still bright and vivid, it’s one of our softer looking greens by comparison.
  • Surf has more green than aqua coloring and it’s one of our most popular Lush® colors.  Goes beautifully with a variety of design aesthetics.
  • Bamboo is a fresh medium spring green color.  When comparing to Lemongrass, we say it has less yellow to it.
  • Seagrass is a more saturated version of Surf.  When comparing Seagrass to our other greens, it appears to have more blue in it.  I’d also describe it as a celedon green color.
  • Lemongrass is our most bright and vivid lime-y green color.
  • Peacock is a lovely turquoise/ blue/ green color.
  • Moss is an earthy olive green color.

One last look at all these beautiful colors….
