The metal is titanium - to withstand the harsh marine environment. It is not painted. We sourced the material through a local architectural sheet metal/roofing supplier. Any architectural sheet metal company should be able to provide this material for you. I hope this helps.

From the plans we have in our digital files, the bathroom is 8 ft wide by 10 ft long. I hope that helps.

Unfortunately the owner purchased this rug after construction was completed. We do not have a record of where she purchased it.

Three colors were mixed in the ratios above and then applied by trowels with a smooth finish. Any plasterer should be able to duplicate.

No, I never got a definitive answer on the color. I ended up going with a honed jet mist granite, which is a bit darker, but really nice, in my opinion. The honed rather than the high gloss makes it look a little more like soapstone.

I apologize - I do not have the name of the color of the granite in this kitchen.
