Our counter's edge profile is flat with a mitre cut (i.e. not layered like you see in granite). Chipped on the flat edge profile and on the countertop surface. Within 18 months of installation. In a house with no dog or kids. Contrary to what they tell you it is a very soft material compared to granite. The chip on the edge has been repaired so you barely see it but the chips on the countertop surface are too difficult to repair. . I never put hot pans right on the countertop - and we always use a cutting board. You also can't leave citrus or acidic products on the countertop (just like granite), and if you use any other products besides water to clean you run the risk of discoloration.

At first I thought the first picture was upside down. I'd much have preferred wooden floors and white(ish) ceiling. It's a better balance imo.

do you have any photos of indoor outdoor terrazzo transitions from the polished to rustic terrazzo in a continuous color scheme?
