Yesterday, I met the Bro-In-Law (he's a designer) at one of the first tile stores to help with the massive search for flooring, shower, and counter top stuff. EGAD...We were sure that after only one stop that the choices were going to be easy and I was so very happy with it. We found this long glass tile stuff for some pop of color, for the top of the back splash. I am IN LOVE with it.
The wood sample is the wood floors throughout the house.
Then The Hubby decided he just had to be a part of the looking, not purchasing. Well, that put a bunch of kinks in our decisions and then he suggested we go to another place he knew of for the marble/granite/travertine selections. Oh my gosh, so many choices and I was at a loss for what I wanted and to match what I already loved. Then there was "it can't be too thick, it can't be too slick, it can't be...". MAN!
Then, I ran across this little jewel. It is called Opera Fantastico(?), is marble and I fell in love with it. I was even willing to change some of my previous choses...
I LOVE this, BUT there may not be enough and it has been in their storage for 4 years and probably can't get more...DRAT! We may have to make it work anyway.
