I can’t believe I lived with those granite counter tops for four years!!! My favorite material to use for counter tops is 2″ carrera. I have used it in many of my clients kitchens and they all love it. If you keep it sealed you don’t have to worry about staining. My boyfriend is a complete disaster in the kitchen, he’s a good cook but he’s messy and spills red wine all the time and I haven’t had any problems with staining. I added a hammered farm house sink with copper fixtures and I love the combo of the stainless appliances with the copper fixtures.
You can see how much nicer it is to have the french door refrigerator built in and adding the depth to the cabinet on the left gave me so much more cabinet space I was now able to store all my big platters and serving pieces in the bottom of the cabinet where I was not able to before.
This is my son’s bathroom who is now 6′ 4″! I remodeled his bathroom before we moved in four years ago, at the time who knew he would be 6′ 4″ when he was a Jr in High School so I had to add the 10″ “S” riser pipe to his shower head last summer. The rain shower and thermal volume control are from Rohl in polished chrome.
All the material I used is honed Topo Azul from Ann Sacks, I used 16″ x 16″ on the floor, 1″ x 1″ mosaic in the shower and 3″ x 6″ field on the walls with a 2″ x 8″ rail molding. An of course the towels are from Waterworks who in my opinion have the best bath towels.
Here’s my powder room that I basically designed the entire room around the Dragon Vessel sink that I feel in love with four years ago. After I found the sink I was shopping for another client at Peking 62 (which is no longer around) and I found the Mongolia cabinet and it was a match made in heaven!
