No Comments

2021 Is the Year of Bold and Sophisticated Color!

Hey there Indianapolis, we just wanted to pop in to let you know home transformations are getting sophisticated with the Sherwin Williams 2021 color of the year—Urbane Bronze!  Whether you’re repainting your kitchen cabinets or updating the wall color in your kitchen or in an adjacent room, this nature-inspired hue is a perfect companion to natural and engineered stone.  If you are looking for countertop inspiration photos, let’s check out three countertop materials we feel would pair well with this color trend!  Sit down, grab a slice from Pizza Junkiez  (Have you tried the Heisenberg It is *chef’s kiss) and let’s talk tops!  

Oyster Grigio from Corian Quartz 


First up, Oyster Grigio is a warm neutral with thin veins scattered throughout the entire slab, this vein pattern is quite agreeable with most kitchen types because seams are not as conspicuous with the smaller veins as they are with large veins which could start or stop abruptly at seam joins.  DuPont, the maker of Corian Quartz, offers a ten-year transferrable warranty on this material.

Next let’s take a gander at this beautiful Brazilian exotic Mykonos slab.  It possesses that rich, feathery veining that we adore in marble, but with more durability.  Nothing says durability and luxury like quartzite .  This slab would look amazing ia single wall kitchen with a large island painted in Urbane Bronze.  To let your countertops be the star, stick with a solid color backsplash tile that complements the counter’s background color. 

Kahlo from Dekton by Cosentino 

Did you know some engineered surfaces in our industry like Dekton can provide the look of natural stone with photo-quality replication? Kahlo by Dekton looks exactly like a polished slab of Patagonia Granite, and since every slab of Kahlo is virtually identical; this option would be perfect for a kitchen with twin islands.  If you have an open concept space with Urbane Bronze on the walls in the living area, be adventurous!  Cement the color theme of the whole space with texture and a matte finish like Radium for the cabinetry along the wall.

Perfection!  Our next post will be a trend watch on twin islands so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.  We would love to know what you think, which stone speaks to you?
