New construction don't be Boring

Yesterday was a great day. Having a major design blogger Joni at feature one of my renovations is like being on Oprah or winning the golden ticket ! Joni has a beautiful blog I have followed for as long as I can remember so please check out her blog. It's beautiful and informative. Love her style .
Well now back to reality. Here is a new construction project I want to share. I tried to make this more of a custom home vs a new construction boring as I like to say . I love using marble and this was a gorgeous piece of Carerra with a fabulous grey vein running thru it it's polished vs honed. I have used both and love both equally. I get asked if polished or honed is better at hiding spots and imperfections. I think they both show spots equally. I don't worry about the spots marble is just so beautiful and no other counter top product can take the place of this beautiful marble. I also like to paint my interior doors and here I used Benjamin moore paint in high gloss black. Painting interior doors makes your home look more custom and gives it instant character. This sink is one I searched for and found at
It's a nickel plated farm sink and it's another great find to add to a home 
It's unique and so much prettier than just an undermount stainless sink.
Add two pendant lights and you have a beautiful look that doesn't feel like new construction. Who doesn't love that !
Happy Tuesday

Love everything you did in here. We purchased a 3 year old home about a year and a half ago and I wish I could have chosen some things before the builder was finished. We are currently in the process of making changes. It is fun, but seems expensive and takes time. Thanks for your inspirations.

My wife will surely like this, we moved in PH last year. Guess I will have to tell my House Contractors in the Philippines to renovate our kitchen like this.
