Marble & WalnutContemporary Kitchen, Seattle

The client wanted their Colonial Revival style home to be comfortable and inviting, but also have a beautiful and elegant feel to it. We selected glacier white painted inset cabinetry for a traditional New England style room. A soothing Halcyon color on the island was chose to bring the color of water inside the home. A beautiful reclaimed antique wood chndelier hangs over the large island as the focal point of the room.

    If you are considering marble for your counter top: visit Marble Trend and check out the vintage line. www.marbletrend.com

    Hello--

    Thank you for your interest in this project. Yes, you need to be careful with marble tops used in the kitchen. If you love the way things look with a natural 'patina' that happens over time you will be happy with it. It will eventually take on a lived-in, well worn look.

    If you prefer things to stay pristine looking--fresh and new...you should consider a quartz product that mimics the look of marble. There is a new product category on the market now called an 'Ultra Compact Surface' that is made like a durable porcelain tile, but it's cut from a large slab. Check out Dekton and Neolith. They may have a color you like.

    Beautiful! And I'm having trouble finding marble slabs that thick. These are fabulous. Did you double up on 1 1/4 ?

    These slabs are 3/4" thick, and the edge is built up to make it 1½".

    Thank you, we love the color too! This color comes from one of our custom lines called Corsi, the color is “Halcyon”.

    Hello bmcilwain! This was a shelf fabricated by the marble fabricator. It was applied to the surface of the backsplash.

13. Backsplash niches and ledges. Going that extra step with small, unexpected details is what makes a traditional kitchen feel the way it feels. Niches behind the stove are one such detail.

6. Gorgeous and functional ventilation. Ventilation is one of those things that's gone from functional to sexy in no time.
