delicious stone icing for my benches

Here is my stone decision for all the bench tops in the house - Quantum Quartz Luna White.

As the stone mason measured, I lugged his sample book around the house with me, room to room, holding all the whites, greys, and latte tones up against the tiles, the walls and the cabinetry. I had already made a decision that I wanted white stone in the kitchen - as one can never ever ever EVER get enough white... The stone mason talked me out of a pure white, after he showed me what a car key does to the surface of a pure white stone bench and explained that pots, pans and utensils would do the same thing. Those who know me well, know that I cannot be delicate and gentle, rough and tumble is more me. So the fleck it was.

I thought I may have chosen a different tone for the bathrooms, a coffee latte tone to tie in with the floor tile but I just couldn't bring myself to introduce a third color into the room - symmetry and evens only for this girl!

So there it is - simple.... white stone.
