Monochromatic Tones

“This kitchen’s creamy beige Durango Stone™ continues throughout the rest of the home’s main floor and onto outdoor deck areas to emphasize an open loft feel. The kitchen floor is laid with large diagonal tiles, mosaic inserts, and with tiles on the perimeter that line up parallel to the walls. The stone has been filled and sealed and is naturally mottled with splotchy color, so it won’t show stains.

“The combination of the monochromatic light beige tones and stainless steel accents creates a sleek modern look, warmed by the natural stone. The floor’s matte surface serves as a needed counterpoint to the shiny paradiso granite countertops and high-gloss laminate cabinets.”
