On vacation these last few days when I posted a restaurant rest room and an ice cream parlour, both happened to have hex tile floors.
Someone asked if they were trendy and I said yes.
Then another reader posted that they are classic and date back to the early 20’s or maybe even before, just like subway tile.
So here’s the thing. You’re both right.
White kitchens are currently a huge trend. And at the same time, a classic. Same goes for hex tile and subway tile.
Here’s what will make hex tile look trendy. If you are only replacing the floor in your dated bathroom, that’s when it will scream ‘new floors, old everything else’.
Speaking of classic, that was a big conversation as always, in my Specify Colour with Confidence™ training in downtown Toronto less than two weeks ago, where I met 21 women.
I am always amazed by the talent and creativity that walks into the room and this time was no exception. Every one of these ladies was vibrant and passionate about becoming experts in colour.
I’ve spent the past four years working hard to create a transferrable way to help the planet see and understand colour and this spring I’ve been introducing my new MK CONFIDENCE Method™ that takes the key elements of my training and puts them into a 10-point acronym.
CONFIDENCE. And, you know what? The confidence level at the end of the three days we spent together rocketed up.
Here are some comments:
“As soon as I arrived home, people are now asking for my help, including a colleague who now wants to hire me to consult even though she has been doing this longer than me, she is now second guessing herself after listening to me talk about all the great things the seminar did for me, ie confidence that I really do see it and have information that others don’t and that they need.”

This is my second color class and the two could not have been more different. Each one pushed me along to a greater understanding and appreciation of the logistics of why some colors work and some just don’t work. Wish that we would have had more time together! I could have used 2 more days of practical exercises.” –Georgene Perlman, The Reimagined Space, Tampa, FL“Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the 3 days on Colour with you. I learned sooooo much.
First client back on Monday we were going through colours , she was trying to do the whole clean & dirty thing, so we avoided that catastrophe. She was painting colour patches on my freshly primed walls (wince). So I got out my big colour samples and held them against her fireplace and floor (instead of the middle of the wall where she had painted her blotches)….all of a sudden the light came on and she could choose her colour much easier. 🙂 It turned out to be a good day! I felt so in control of the situation instead of just nodding and going along with her choices. A great big thank you for sharing your knowledge. Looking forward to future courses for sure.”
