Giallo Portofino (Classic) Granite
January 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're in the final stages of our kitchen remodel. We have mission style quartersawn oak cabinets in a light cinnamon color and hand scraped hickory floors in a medium cinnamon or amber tone. We have stainless appliances, near white painted trim, and my wife has picked BM twilight gold for the kitchen walls and BM fresh clay for two accent walls in the breakfast area. For granite, we started out thinking tropic brown, then have considered giallo vicenza (local warehouse slabs a bit too peachy), new venetian gold, and are now leaning toward Giallo Portofino (aka Portofino Classic). We have really good lighting and with the lighter cabinets, we're kind of like the contrast of a darker stone. I've read some comments suggesting it's too busy, and was wondering whether anyone can provide any insight. BTW, the stone guys are coming tomorrow morning to measure. Thanks so much!
