Grazie, merci, mahalo, danke, gracias, thank you thank you thank you for all your kind comments yesterday. Kitchens are one of those spaces where there is so much you can do with so many different materials ! For us, we wanted something light and bright and inviting with plenty of space for cooking and entertaining. This guided much of our choices. Some queries came up via email or in the comments, so here’s a few answers.
What are your countertops made of? (Charlotte ) What type of marble do you have ? (Samantha) Tell me about your countertops (Sue).
The countertops are a combination of marble and cherry wood. Yes, it’s true, I chose the two most high maintenance countertops. Everyone tried to talk me out of it, but I held my ground and I have no regrets. I ripped this image out of a magazine many years ago and stapled it to my forehead.
I didn’t care if wood countertops were as impractical as high heels in a marathon. I had to have them.
