“He’s learning his colors here.”
Donna Jewell’s kitchen is where her two-and-a-half year old grandson gets to practice his colors.
“He loves the kitchen. He asked me, ‘where did you get all these tiles?’ He points to color and knows the name. He’s getting really good!”Donna’s Georgia home was built in 1983 and she likes to keep it current. Every room has a different feel and style, and she finds inspiration everywhere.
“I have some help, but it’s my own vision. I read a lot and look at a lot of magazines, and in the last few years, I just like colorful things.”
Last April, Donna’s mother passed away and she wanted to honor her.
“She was a home economics teacher and spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I have many fond memories of her here, so when I saw the Modwalls’ tiles in an article in Cooking Light magazine, it just hit me. They were so bright and cheery. I thought, ‘This is it. This is what I’ve been looking for.”
She called Chris at Modwalls who sent her samples and helped determine how much tile she would need and how long it would take.
“She was fantastic. She helped me from beginning to end. I thought it was going to take much longer but one day, I got a surprise phone call saying, ‘Donna, your tile is ready,’ so it was much quicker!”
As Donna puts the finishing touches on the room, she envisions using Modwalls’ tiles to make picture frames to hang on the wall.
“The whole experience with Modwalls was pleasant and fun. Everybody just comments on how wonderful it looks, bold and bright, playful yet classy.”
And what does her family think?
“My husband says it feels like a Florida kitchen. It has a bright and airy feeling. And the other day, I thought, my mother would love my kitchen.”
