Oooh, La La! Reclaimed French Hexagonal Tiles

I was reading a book just a few minutes ago when along came this passage:

The flooring of the rooms overlooking the courtyard was of red tile, those antique hexagonal tiles which in old Paris hotels are used to cover the stairs and landings above the second story.”

Naturally,  being the little design detective, I immediately stop and google antique french hexagonal tiles.


Imagine walking across your kitchen floor feeling these cool tiles under your feet.

I can see why they’re hot this year.  Or any year.  Check out these reclaimed tiles near the middle and bottom of Houzz’s webpage.

Tile is definitely something to consider for a foyer, kitchen or bathroom.  If I were to pick a paint color for the walls, I’d go with a creamy yellow like Farrow and Ball’s “Hay, on this ceiling:

or “Straw“, also from Farrow & Ball.

I feel like picking up a classic novel and having a cup of tea when I look at this picture.

Easy Tips for the New Year: 9 Ways to Sneak in Nutrition

Easy Tips for the New Year: 9 Ways to Sneak in Nutrition.


Hi, I'm StephieLou!
Hi, I’m StephieLou!

2013! Happy New Year!   Welcome to my blog

What exactly is The Right Hue, you may or may not ask? It’s the name of my  color consulting business.  

Over time The Right Hue has grown, taken a backseat and grown again.  It has staying power.  I fit it in my busy life when I can.    The name stuck.

Aside from color consulting, I have a thing for taking pictures, cooking, gardening, DIY projects, thrift stores and finding beauty in the ordinary.

I’ve been inspired by so many out there on the web, but mostly Ree Drummond, “The Pioneer Woman”.  She rocks my world with her recipes, can-do attitude and love of cooking, writing, photography, music, movies, animals and most importantly, her family.  She shows us that we can do all the things we love and share it with everyone.  And no one gets hurt!  It’s all good!

So welcome to The Right Hue.  Think of me as your personal guinea pig.   I will tell you what I really think.  I will post the steps, one by one, when I’ve stumbled upon something that grabs me.

Look for my blog posts every Tuesday and Thursday and okay, maybe Sunday.


Happy New Year!

"Color your world."
