Another Oakmont of Hummelstown Kitchen. Like black and white?

Why just use one type or color of stone in your kitchen? Why not use two? Just like you mix and match clothes, furniture, fabrics, pillows etc., you can do the same with stone in your kitchen! This kitchen is a wonderful example of stone mixing, if you want to stay on the conservative side. Below you will see 2 totally different stones and colors. In my opinion they are more on the “traditional” side of mixing, using neutral colors with simple movement or veining.

The first picture shows a pass-through made of White Carrara marble which is honed.


The counter top inside the kitchen is made of Pietra Cardosa which is a meta sandstone quarried near Stazzema Lucca, Italy. This beautiful stone is a dark grey with some white veining. It is rough-hewn and is resistant to most stains. We recommend sealing it at least yearly. It does look like a slate but does not have the strength or moisture repelling properties like slate.



We are doing many kitchens and bathrooms using the black and white theme. It’s a trend that has been happening out west and has been seen in many magazines and online. We will be out and about photographing more of our work as we do it and ones that we’ve done over the last couple of years. Subscribe to our blog to see what’s new in our world of stone. You can do this by looking above where it says “subscribe”. If you subscribe, it’s like getting a magazine subscription online. :)
