A Traditional Kitchen Idea
I came up with a beautiful concept for a client today that I thought I would share with all of you.
First of all, if any of you have come across Giallo Portofino granite, you already know that it’s beautiful…but a pain in the you-know-what to coordiante with.
It has gray, taupe, white, burgundy, and little flecks of black in it. Meaning, you can really only use it with a monotone ceramic backsplash. Which is fine, but there are very few colors that actually coordinate well with it (graupe being one of them).
As I’ve said before, you really want one focal point, and everything else to complement that piece. When you design with this granite, it is always the focal point. Generally, people gravitate towards neutral backsplashes to really show off the counter.
However, if you don’t want your backsplash to be too boring, try this idea:
1) White shaker-style cabinets
2) Walker Zanger “Tuileries”
3) Giallo Portofino granite
4) Walnut wood floors
I think the look is goooorgeous! What do you think? Would you use it in your kitchen?
