The design profession is quite cyclical; at one point in time I will be working on bedrooms, tons of bedrooms. Then it will change to something like remodels and I'll have several clients looking to revamp their kitchens and baths.
Recently, I have been working on more new construction projects than any other. And they all seem to be moving at the same pace which is both wonderful and exhausting. Great because I can meet reps at one place and knock out selections for several clients in a matter of hours.
So, here are some highlights for granite and marble selections I did for three clients... all in one day!
Beautiful slab that stopped me dead in my tracks! It is an amazing combination of creams, blacks, caramels, and a beautiful deep copper color.
Here's a closeup of the slab with my backsplash selections. "Taupe" will find itself in a beautiful kitchen :)
Cedar Brown is actually a marble, which is a softer, more porous stone but has a beauty that is so difficult to find in any other product. It's smooth and milky looking; it's beautiful in it's simplicity. Perfect for a master bathroom which is what this lucky slab will be used for.
If anyone doubted the existence of God, I would direct them to "Cosmos." This stone is breathtaking and has been one of my favorites since I ever set eyes on it. It is am amazing foray of blacks, caramels, silver mica flecs, and deep red garnets splashed throughout. "Cosmos" makes a statement all by itself, it doesn't need a wing-man!
Butterfly beige is a very economical slab (especially compared to the Cosmos) but it's grays, beiges, and red garnets make it a great choice for secondary spaces. It is quite neutral and goes with a number of different colors and tile combinations.
Yes- you can purchase slabs of travertine for countertops. It's very similar in composition to marble so it has the same smooth rippling. Another fabulous choice for a bathroom.
An exciting find at the end of my long day... aspen white is much prettier in person than this picture depicts. It has just a hint of gray/light blue swirling around a combination of creams and blacks.
