As we watch trends come and go, brass is holding strong into 2018, and mixing metals is the new design trend!

Are you afraid to go that bold?  Rose gold can ease you into the brass trend.

Quartzite, not to be confused with man-made quartz, is one of nature’s most precious stones. It’s durability, beauty and timelessness make it the perfect choice for your stone countertops. Most quartzites are ranked slightly harder than granite on the Moh’s Scale of Mineral Hardness therefore scratches should not be an issue. It can vary in porosity making some more resistance to staining than others so quick clean up on spills and sealing once a year is a good idea.

Terrazzo is a material that is precast or poured in place and used for wall or floor treatments. It consists of a variety of stones like glass, granite, marble, and quartz. It is sprinkled or unsprinkled and poured with a binder that is cementitious for chemical binding, polymeric for physical binding, or a combination of both.

For years, people were selecting darker granites, earthy tones and putting them with darker cabinets but today that has completely flipped. The modern and traditional trend in countertops now is lights, whites, greys, and can incorporate beige and “greige” accents in the stone, splash, and paint. Greige is a warm toned grey that can be mixed with earthy tones. This opens up the space and makes it feel larger, airy and modern. This color palette goes just as well with traditional or modern, even contemporary.
