I love the combination of vintage architecture and contemporary seems respectful and interesting. The gray granite is beautifully simple but another choice could be glass mosaics for a little more visual action. I did a mosaic fireplace wall in a contemporary home shading the glass tiles from light to dark. I think it is pretty effective as well.

These renovations were beautifully done. I especially like the first two. Always wanted an old building to restore into a modern home.
