I'm not sure about the specific material used in this kitchen. However, it looks similar to several marbles found on the following site: http://www.marble.com/materials/marble/gray. Bianco Ibiza or White Carrara come close.

Or, for a more creamy color try the Crema Marfil here: http://www.marble.com/materials/marble/brown

Maybe I'm wrong, but it looks like the countertop along the sink is different than the island? If so, what is the countertop along the wall? Thanks, I really appreciat this, as your kitchen is lovely!

Looks like Monte Bello Quartzite... Beautiful stone.

Thanks so much!
Any ideas on which caesarstone, cambria, staron, etc. I could use instead of this quartzite?

(I realize the quartzite is beautiful!
I'm assuming it's more expensive, and maybe won't hold up to stains/heat as well?)

You are very welcome! I am not aware of any man made material (quartz) that mimics this stone. It's hard to find anything with as much depth as a true quartzite. It is pretty pricey, however, it is as strong if not stronger than most granites. It's a very dense material. It holds up well to heat. You will not have a problem with stains as long as you seal it with a deep penetrating stone sealer. I would recommend Miracle 511 Porous plus sealer. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!
