Floridians enjoy a special piece of paradise living close to warm sandy beaches and crystal blue waters.

Nestled in between the beach and the sound is a picturesque barrier island in North Carolina aptly named Figure Eight Island. This coastal southern paradise is an ocean lover’s dream and a creative inspiration, thanks to its vibrant blue waters that sparkle in the sun, nearly white sands and pops of lush green vegetation scattered around the island.

It turns out, homeowners love the look as much as they love the craftsmanship and heart behind this eco-friendly material. And one designer, Laura Umansky, fell so hard for the material that she designed four of her own custom Vetrazzo color mixes and installed her favorite in two of her home kitchens.
