It's been a while and forgetting the details. The slabs and tile splash were from Walker Zanger. Calacutta Verde Luna Mosaic tiles in a Rhomboid pattern are on the splash. I do believe the counters were Calacutta Verde. It is a pretty specific color. .

The island is painted Onyx "Black", not an espresso stain which would look a little browner.

Test out the different materials before you buy. Apply lemon juice, wine and oil on your samples. Cut on them. (although I always use a cutting board no matter what). This test is more for you to see what you are willing to tolerate. You can buy a 12 x 12 granite and marble tile at your local tile store. The samples may not be exactly the same color as the ones you want to ultimately want to install but you need to see how marble wears before you are ready to commit to it. Caesarstone and other quartz, you can order samples for free. In summary marble is a calcite and will etch when it comes in contact with acid. A leathered or flamed marble surface is a way to conceal scratches and etching that are very noticeable on a polished marble counter. As for Caesarstone and other quartz countertops, the way to avoid a fad appearance is to avoid trendy colors or the ones that have a faux granite look. Cremes, whites will always have a classic appeal. As for pits and chips, the straighter the counter edge, the more prone to chips you will see. There is really no way around it, everything we own, drive and wear is subject to wear, even our own teeth. As with everything, keep smiling, maintain as best you can and enjoy the memory of good times.

As for trends, keep in mind people remodel every 10-15 years, sometimes sooner if budget allows. You may have been into Tuscan colors 10 years ago and now you are falling in love with greys as we all are. I think grey is beautiful and hopefully a classic like white. If you are hesitant, paint your walls gray and stick with a neutral color on your countertop. Marbles and Solid Quartz colors are always classic options.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The chandelier hanging over this island adds an air of formality without detracting from the hood in the background or the gorgeous limestone counter below it.
