Natural Stone for Countertops

O’Brien Harris


Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had a fabulous weekend and are enjoying the beginning of this wonderful fall season. We spent the weekend at the beach and at a UNC football game and savored every minute!

The only downside was the outcome of the game. This Duke blue stove is giving us negative flashbacks if that gives you a hint… Even still, it’s so fabulous we’d love to install one right in our own kitchens–with that impeccable marble backsplash alongside it as well.

It’s no secret we love a gorgeous natural stone countertop.  We adore the white veining in this black countertop and how it picks up the white accents in the cabinets and backsplash. It’s the perfect combination of light and dark.

A mix of materials in the kitchen is always welcome. A wood butcher’s block gives a nice contrast to a honed granite–and adds an extra work surface for entertaining and meal prep for a crowd.

Natural stone sinks are even better! The uniform look this adds to the kitchen is so chic.

No need to accessorize this stunning kitchen countertop. Beautiful and durable, this granite is perfect for the chef.

Few home accents are as versatile as natural stone. From modern homes to the very traditional, a gorgeous marble, granite, slate or stone countertop coordinates beautifully with any decor.

The cohesive look that this marble countertop with matching backsplash creates is absolutely stunning. And the chunky handles and stainless shelves add an industrial touch.

Silver bells may not be ringing anymore, but we think this shade is sparkly and festive all year long!


The Big Chill


You know we love a gorgeous range. And, man oh man, have we found a new one to swoon over. The Big Chill is known for its iconic Retro Fridge, but we’re thinking they might be known for their new Classic Series pretty soon!
