Current Obsessions: Statement Stone

Think fireplaces, built-in bathtub surrounds, and grand staircases. These are the places we are looking at to make some of the boldest statements in interior design right now. I think it’s time to rebel against safe design, but I’ve always said timeless design is pointless if it’s boring and unremarkable.

We are really loving new designs in marble and especially quartzite in vivid colors and designs. Bold purple veined sinks, stairways that have book-matched stone, and showers designed with stone creating chevron designs. Remember just because a design decision is bold doesn’t mean it’s crazy. Design spaces that you love with carefully considered design never goes out of style.
