Anyone that knows me well knows I love marble. I have been using it as much as I can. When I started design work more than 12 years ago you couldn't even get a bid for marble countertops. They would laugh me out of the store saying it wasn't appropriate for counters. Well it's possibly the most popular counter right now. I hate to say I'm right but….(well actually everyone knows I love to be right :) I have installed marble in my new kitchen, bathroom, daughter's bathroom, fireplace and powder room. I know, I may have a problem. But it's classic and I love it, and the natural beauty can't be replicated. Although there are some close replicas I do use now. I'm working on a master bath and found lots of fun tile options over the past week. I talked a client into increasing the budget to reface the fireplace while the kitchen backsplash was being installed, and I found a table at our local trade room, KDR, that has a beautiful white marble. So there are sure to be more posts about marble but here's the first.
