This was kind of fun at first, but then after three granite warehouses, not so much.
I narrowed it down to three slabs that I thought might work and my decorator, Lynley, said no to all three.
I wanted light colored granite, with browns or greys. The island was easy I wanted absolute black. The granite warehouse people said that everyone wants light colored granite now and it is hard to find. (translation "we can charge you more, if you really want it")
See fun! Ooooh, awww, wow. The below is considered "exotic". (translation "you won the lottery and you don't care how much, you just want it")
Second warehouse, are you kidding me! There were four more rows just like this one.
Third warehouse, getting closer, call in the second opinion. Lynley help!
We have a winner! Colonial Cream.
OK - take a deep breath and get ready for demolition.
My Pinterest Inspirations
Notice the black and light colored granite combinations.
Colonial Cream example below.
I also noticed that most kitchens had the square edge on the granite. Guess what I ended up with? Do you have a great kitchen countertop story?
