As I have mentioned before,  I love a beautiful piece of marble.

 

Marble is a classic element that never goes out of style, and in my opinion, it only looks better with a little age and wear.

 

A few months ago, Birmingham Magazine  wrote an article on Masonry Arts, a stone fabricator who just bought a marble quarry in Alabama (yes, Alabama White does come out of the ground here).

 

I was honored when they asked to include me in it.   I am a big fan of this stone and have used Masonry for several of my installations.

 

As you will see by the custom marble vanity I designed, marble can be used in other ways besides countertops.  Below is the pic they included in the article.

While marble is becoming more common in the home, I still run across people who are afraid to use it.   Don’t be!!!    Misinformation about the material is completely overstated.   I have it all through my house and believe me, we  live in my  home.   Think about the old, gorgeous buildings with marble floors, stairs, etc…  They are even prettier today than when installed years ago.

With the weather turning colder, we are excited to be working on a renovation/addition to a condo at Lake Martin.  Yes, it’s still cold there, but at least it allows us an opportunity to think of summertime fun.

This retreat will have a new kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor living spaces. We are designing a custom banquette for the kitchen and the side porch to allow for lots of seating for family and friends.

 

Our client’s focus is all about making memories instead of being worried about making a mess, and we couldn’t agree more. The lake is supposed to be a place for less stress and more fun.

 

With a house full of children and grandchildren, we plan to use a lot of outdoor and durable fabrics.

 

As you can see below, our color inspirations are gray, plum, taupe and cream.

Stay tuned for more updates on this project.  Have a great day!
