The white and gray palette is everywhere right now in stores and on TV. However, just because something is trendy or popular doesn’t mean it is right for your vision of your home. We meet folks every day in both of our showrooms who are looking for something beyond the current trend. In this post we would like to highlight a few surfaces (and tasty local treats) if your space demands something a little warmer than crisp white.
If your design style welcomes the spirit of Western Europe, Dreamy Marfil by Caesarstone is a color you are likely to make a beeline towards. With a creamy base and golden-brown veining, this quartz color will dazzle during any gathering. Just imagine your closest friends enjoying a gorgeous charcuterie board from Indy’s own Board & You with you!
We can’t forget the beauty offered to us in natural stone. Dreamy Marfil engineered quartz may be created in a plant, but it was inspired by Crema Marfil marble from Spain. A true classic, we love the look of Crema Marfil when it is paired in a traditional kitchen with a copper sink and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. If you’re afraid of marble, don’t be! It is still a viable countertop option if you know how to properly care for it. Learn more about it here in our Marble 101 blog post.
Third, we’ll feature a terrazzo style of quartz from Silestone called Blanco Capri. This pattern style is one of the most flexible quartz patterns out there. If you are looking for something a little more uniform in pattern, the terrazzo style is an excellent option. It works with most design themes and anchors the room, so other features in the space can enjoy the spotlight. We spotted this gorgeous kitchen from a fellow fabricator in Ireland that brought French style into the 21st century. Note how they integrated stained and painted wood with this engineered stone to create a truly timeless feel in this space.
Next, we’re going to have a look at Botticino Classic from Vicostone Quartz. With an ivory base and white veining, this countertop is a subtle but glowing companion to cherry cabinets. Botticino Classic is versatile and will work well with traditional or modern spaces. We feel it is best enjoyed with a slice of Mixed Berry Cheesecake from the Cake Bake Shop.
If you’re looking for something with a little more personality, Portico Cream from Quartz by MSI Surfaces may be just what you’re looking for. Tan, brown, and taupe colors swirl together in a beige base to create a unique pattern that is a great partner to both stained and painted cabinetry. Some folks are hesitant to put this pattern on white cabinets, but we feel it is a beautiful option that is worth considering. Pair this quartz with Mallow Run’s and enjoy the good life.
We hope you have enjoyed this glimpse of creamy countertop offerings, Indianapolis!
