How have I liked my marble and soapstone counters?

I’m so glad to be done with our kitchen construction! The decisions, the dust, the mess, the stress!
One of my many design hang-ups was about what type of counters to go with (as I’m sure you well remember). In the end we went with Statuary Veined Marble and Soapstone in the kitchen
Many of you have asked for a report on how I’ve liked my counters. 
I give a candid report at the Granite Gurus here.


  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! My kids (4 boys, 1 girl) have started helping me cook (which I want to encourage but it’s so messy!) and I think I might faint if they stained my (theoretical) marble counters. I might head in the silestone direction.

  2. i enjoyed reading your thoughts about the marble! your kitchen is gorgeous!

  3. I love your kitchen table as it has not extensions, is fairly large and has decorative legs. Where did you find it? Or, do you have any suggestions for where to find tables without extensions?

  4. Holli,
    Found my table on Craigslist. Try Pottery Barn or World Market.

  5. Your home is amazing! Did you draw the chalkboard? it looks so good!

  7. I would lovecto know how you clean your marble counters? I have honed granite and marble and I font know that I sm using the right products.

  8. Michelle,

    Sorry for the typos in my comment, was using my Kindle Fire without my glasses! I really would like to know how you clean your counters.


  9. There has dieting calories been much debate over the quality of foods today versus ten years back.

    A single beer can contain as many as 250 calories.
