Countertops are a commitment. Choose one that invokes your passion and you’ve got an investment that will continue to deliver inspiration for decades to come. But even favorites can use a refresh from time to time.
From neutral palettes to color spurges, Vetrazzo’s recycled glass countertops make their appearance on many mood boards and material selections. In love with the creativity of the designers who feature Vetrazzo, we gathered a few of our favorite finds and asked them for the backstory on their vision.
At home and at work, designer Laura Umansky lives out her philosophy of livable luxury for interiors. Since purchasing her family home, a 1925 Tudor Revival, and undertaking a complete renovation teaming up with Newberry Architecture, Laura and her team have taken the concept of fabulous meets functionality to heart. Not only will this home be a place for Laura and her husband Michael to raise their two young girls it will also stand as Boulevard Show House opening in 2018 with tickets benefitting Preservation Houston.
If you love a neutral but feel numbed out by white quartz or bored by beige granite, do not give up hope for your kitchen or bath design.
BEHR’s Color of the Year: In the Moment T18-15 is a nature-inspired, soul-soothing hue that brings the outdoors in. A cool, tranquil, spruce blue (blue, gray and lush green combo), In The Moment is meant to create a soothing atmosphere within the home.
Millennial pink has taken over everything, and don’t expect it to go away anytime soon. From fashion, hair color, and makeup palettes, to paint colors, furniture and kitchen appliances, this cheeky, sincere, and nostalgic color has invaded the lives of not only millennials, but also gen xers.
If there is one element present in every Laura U interior design it’s bold color. Whether she’s designing a traditional historic home or a contemporary new build, Laura Umansky begins with a soothing neutral base and adds layers of rich colors and cheerful metallics to create exuberant spaces.
