Do you have a favorite color that reflects your personality and style? Is there a certain color that just makes you happy? Many people have a color they love, but are afraid to make one color the star of their decorating scheme.


However, decorating in one color does not ever have to be boring or overwhelming. One can select a star color and then compliment it with different shades, textures, and patterns. You will be surprised at the world of possibilities that can open up to you when you decide to select a star color. Luckily, the natural stone industry has many options that will complement any color of your choosing.


Granite is one the most popular materials for kitchen countertops and it’s easy to see why it is in such high demand. It is a beautiful stone that comes in a wide variety of colors that will suit even the most stringent color palette. Everything else within the kitchen should be of the same scheme but in varying hues. A neutral color like beige or off-white can break up the monotony a bit. Try adding those colors in a small wall, pillows, or bar stools.


Blue Kitchen

This stone is considered legendary for its amazing beauty. This striking blue stone has subtle gold and white specks that give it a lovely sense of movement.
