More About Vetrazzo:

Back when “green” was just a color and not a sustainable development term, Vetrazzo was already using glass refuse to create stunning surfaces. A slab can be made of 100% recycled glass. Vetrazzo is the logical choice for consumers and professionals who care about the ecological impact of their projects, especially for LEED buildings: Vetrazzo is committed to highest sustainability standards Using pre- and post-consumer recycled glass from local curbside recycling programs to reduce carbon footprint. Over the years, glass from sources as surprising and varied as old traffic lights from a city in California, all kinds of jars, windshields from cars or architectural glass from skyscrapers has gone into Vetrazzo mixes.

Modwalls Tile company has been Designed to Deligh since 2005. Modwalls offers  their own colorful modern tile designs, along with a curated collection of unique tile, for both commercial and residential spaces. Sold online at Modwalls.com. Retail and Trade clients welcomed.

Tidy – chapter 9: the language of color

What does a life look 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.

Everyone needs a sanctuary.”  – The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

(Continued) Margaret dreamed last night that she was floating through her home and in every room was a different person and a different color. Her dad (orange) was in the living room reading the newspaper, chomping on his pipe that he had quit smoking, but liked to have on hand anyway.

Margaret floats down the hall to her bedroom, which, in the dream, is still decorated circa 1985. She sees a young Margaret applying Diva Red toenail polish while listening to Kate Bush sing Running Up That Hill on her record player.

She keeps floating through her home and finds her ex-boyfriend, Sam (green) in a room that her house doesn’t actually contain. In that room, is a draft table. His back is to her and he is intently drawing a picture of a tree whose roots form a man’s body reaching deep into the earth. The trunk rises from the roots, stretching into branches which form a woman’s body.

Margaret continues floating. She sees her friends, Toni and Ray, (teal) in a nursery playing with their newborn baby; she sees her neighbor Reese (Milk White and Grey) in the bathroom, sitting on the edge of the bathtub, crying over the loss of his wife.

And then she sees a new room. A room of grace and light. It feels like a part of her. A part of her that also radiates in all the people that she loves. It is That Which Exists in all beings. It is also the core of her home. The heart. She enters the room. That is when Margaret wakes up. And wakes up to a calm that she hasn’t felt in years.

Her kitchen remodel is finished. Reese helped her install the colorful Brio glass tile backsplash that she designed on the tile company’s website. He turned her on to the eco-friendly wood floor that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® whose motto is “Forests for All Forever.” Reese’s buddy Ken introduced her to John McDonald, the owner of Semihandmade, an innovative company that makes one-of-kind craftsman-style doors for Ikea kitchen cabinets. John’s team helped her pick out the exact doors to complement her new tile and floors.

Margaret’s kitchen is pretty much perfect. Ever her retro fridge is perfect, from its fern green color to what’s inside it: red, yellow, and green bell peppers, a violet and ivory
striped graffiti eggplant, and a carton of heirloom eggs from the farmers market that are different shades! Who knew?! Margaret’s world has exploded in color.

Now in waking life, with her feet firmly planted on her kitchen floor, she sees that her home has become a sanctuary. Her friendships, new and old, are a sanctuary. Her mother’s parting words “make this house your home,” became a sanctuary as they guided Margaret out of her mourning back into life. Everything that has led her to this moment was, in one way or another, a sanctuary. “Thank you,” says Margaret.Thank you tile

Francis, her cat, gazes at her from the kitchen table.  Reese mows his lawn next door.  The sun streams in through the kitchen window. And the world of color vibrates “thank you.”

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
