do you know the distance between the counter and the bottom of the cabinets? 18" or 20"?

how durable is marble on countertops. - I have been told that marble scratches and should not be used as counter tops in kitchen area. Also staining can be an issue. I love the look, though

Checkout Bianco Quartzite! It has a very similar look, but is more durable.

I know this gorgeous window is custom, but what are the dimensions? - We are doing a kitchen renovation and we have 9' ceilings. I love how this window draws your eye up, and was wondering how tall it is. We are also installing an apron sink, so I would guess the window width is approx 30-32"... thanks for your help!

Can it be accommodated with an 8' ceiling though?

Similar tile??? - Walker Zanger is out of the Mizu subway tile. I'm so bummed! Does anyone have any idea of something along those lines? We are basically doing the same color combination in our kitchen, but with more of a charcoal stone along the main counter. I would love to find something in a subway shape that has that sort of color variation. We have found a marble tile, but I think it would make it too stark!!!

I'm not 100% sure, but Walker Zanger has someting similar. That looks like a 2x6 or 2x5, possibly the Mizu or Gramercy Park.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 7 Areas to Accessorize With Style
6. Kitchens can be tough because they're so function-focused and anything unnecessary can end up looking like clutter. I love these topiaries; they're almost cartoon-like in their anthropomorphic feel, with different heights and haircuts. I've seen rosemary topiary plants as well, and those add a wonderful smell to the kitchen. Potted herbs, a single bud vase, and other things of a simpler nature work in kitchens.
Mary Jo Fiorella has placed three willowy topiaries around this traditional farm-style sink. She recommends Ballard Designs as an online source for similar specimens.
