Needing, Wanting, Loving: Thick Stone Countertops

The one room designers and architects are really pushing the limits on these days seems to be the kitchen.  From auto finishes, to bold paint color choices, to added features, the kitchen is quickly becoming the place to express creativity in design.  One trend I am loving is thick, hearty, stone countertops. They add richness and elegance to the kitchen and help to give the space a bit of personality:

While not a kitchen, I had to share this gorgeous bathroom by Rivera Fine Homes.  Hardware and fittings are the jewelry of the home to me, and the faucet here as well as the drawer pulls create a sense of glamour: 

Depending on the surrounding design details, thick countertops can blend seamlessly in to both rich spaces as well as minimalist ones, like the kitchen below:

I knew I would get in trouble if I ONLY showed thick Carrera marble countertops (my personal fave), so I added in this stunner by Steven Gambrel.  This 1912 Upper East Side home includes a kitchen with rich black lacquer cabinetry, black and white tiled flooring, and a stone countertop- tres chic.

As I mentioned above, designers are making kitchens that are more and more intuitive.  A built-in warming drawer in this kitchen island fits nicely with the surrounding drawer moulding:

So let's discuss- are you a fan of thick countertops?  What are your current favorite trends in kitchen design?

  6. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging.
