Design elements at last!

Our imported Italian marble counter top has arrived, and is now installed and we’re very happy (especially considering I chose it on Monday)…



We’ve used the same marble for the shelf on the other side of the fireplace as well (the wine refrigerator and the rolling table I constructed are designed to fit underneath it for storage).


Here’s the marble, close-up…


And then there’s the tile for the shower.  This was a hail Mary on my part.  We knew we wanted something more than the black tiles, and we had limited choices for accents.  Thanks to everyone who suffered through me asking their opinion, shoving my schematics in their face.  There is one misplaced accent tile (the topmost blue glass piece on the left wall) which will be repositioned where there is a missing tile on the right hand wall, and in its place will be a quartet of the blue crackle glass pieces.  Hopefully you can get a sense of this.  There will be more photos when the shower is in, of course.


The grout will be charcoal black, and you can see where the shower head and temperature handle will go on the left hand wall.  And yes, the tiles will be finished on the top right wall.
