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.
At first glance, you’d never be able to guess that this spacious, bright and airy kitchen was once a set of small and cramped rooms. Closed off, constricting and divided by partition walls, the four medium to small spaces were in desperate need of an update for both style and function.
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.
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Jupiter Island, FL, is a contemporary residence that is both polished and sophisticated. Designed by architect Mitchell O’Neil and interior designer H. Allen Holmes for an adventurous Annapolis, MD couple, this resort-inspired custom home is the ultimate seaside experience.
Known for her sexy performances and signature Ranchero style, Aná Barbara has been a fixture on the Mexican pop scene for more than 20 years. This spring the Latin Grammy winner purchased a home in the Beverly Crest area of Los Angeles for $1.87 million that includes glass walls, bi-folding doors and an ultra-modern chef kitchen featuring Vetrazzo's recycled countertops and Bauformat cabinetry.
If there is one thing Erika Woelfel knows, it’s color.
For 20 years she’s been playing with color and building palettes, in graphic design, merchandising, color consulting, and for the last eight years, as the Vice President of Color and Creative Services at BEHR Paint.
She and her team design everything from the color card at the store and the home sets where the colors are showcased, to the actual paint colors you use, often test driving those colors in their own homes.
(Right now BEHR’s Polished Aqua lives in Woelfel’s kitchen where it’s paired with white cabinetry and earthtone granite surfaces.)
Vetrazzo has always brought impact to a space with color and movement in its handcrafted recycled glass countertops. But now, thanks to an innovation in finishing, our crushed glass slabs are adding a tactile dimension to kitchen and bath design.
It all started when a member of the Vetrazzo team took inspiration from the textures of natural stone from our sister brand Polycor, a natural stone quarrier, where antiqued finishes (also known as leathered finishes) are a bestseller.
Vetrazzo® is a recycled glass surface comprised of 100% recycled glass. Vetrazzo is an exquisite surface material—truly a work of art—and it becomes the centerpiece for your home or project. So, what else makes it sparkle? A high glass content ( 85% by volume), expansive color palette, and story in every surface. From architectural to art glass, to beer bottles and jars, each mix is a signature blend of color and life that tells a story about you, too.
