Shimmery and Bright and Everything Nice: That’s What Girl’s Bathrooms Are Made Of…

When we scored this remnant of Lumix Quartzite, we knew we could put it to good use.  This white and cream colored semi-translucent stone looks a lot like it’s more expensive and less durable Onyx cousin.  We had uncovered the … Continue reading

Starting with River Blue

This client had recently remodeled her kitchen and family room, but felt in retrospect that perhaps the master bath was screaming even louder for an update. The whirlpool tub was non-functional, the shower was tiny and difficult to access, the … Continue reading

Love this bathroom and the efficiency of it all. We combined leftover limestone floor tile from my client’s recent kitchen remodel, a remnant of fabulously veined Sea Pearl Quartzite and a price-performing subway tile to create an on-trend, soothing, spa-like … Continue reading

Lakefront Laundry Makeover: More Usable and Beautiful Too

The objective was not only to make this a more user-friendly laundry room, but to have it double-function as a beverage and service room for family gatherings and events. By replacing a second refrigerator with both under-counter wine and beverage … Continue reading

A Bath with “Allure”

Somehow, 15 years ago, tile countertops made sense on bathroom countertops?  Not sure why.  They are hard to clean and “busy”.  This client took advantage of “leftovers”, i.e. a remnant of Allure quartzite from my fabricator’s yard to spruce up her pool … Continue reading
