Caroline and I have been working hard selecting granite for my new house.
When I first saw the countertops, I thought they were marble, but they are actually white granite. Granite is much more robust and not easily stained. If you cook, marble is not very practical.
Caroline and I went to the granite store that had “the good stuff.” As we walked in the building, the lady behind the counter leaned toward us in a conspiratorial fashion and whispered, “We just got something really good in, and much of it is already on hold.” I don’t know about you, but that piqued my interest. I felt like we were in a speak easy.
She was right, it was awesome! I asked what it was called, and it turned out to be white river.
The granite place had about 4 types of white granite. I didn’t take photos of all of them, but here’s another type they had. It’s more gray.
I considered using the marble shown below as the backsplash, but in the end, felt it didn’t work well.
Here is the kitchen above and the butler’s pantry below.
Here is the downstairs bath vanity. It will have a vessel sink.
And here is the island.
Don’t worry, all of this is being painted. I can’t wait to share it all with you!!
