Speaking of Jason. He went and bought this recliner couch for his mancave last weekend. I must admit I really do like it. Mancave or not I think I may be spending quite a bit of time on it reclined back watching movies. Even the ottoman turns into a little gaming chair.
So for the longest time I was set on Carrera Marble countertops for the kitchen. I love the white with gray veining they have. So pretty.
Well after much
arguing debate with Jason and our cabinet guy we have decided its not the most practical thing to do. At first I was worried I was going to get the nix due to the cost of marble. I was actually surprised to find they weren't much more expensive than granite. However, they evidently require much more maintenance. We were told they have to be sealed twice a year and are easily stained and scratched. BUMMER! So finally I gave up. No more pretty marble countertops :( So I looked into granite but there really isn't a granite with a similar white and gray veining. Most granite looks more spotty. So after some research (AKA stalking home decor blogs and pinterest) I found a quartz counterop by Cambria called Torquay. It has a very similar look to the marble and since it is a stone material I love the feel of it as well.

Hopefully this weekend I can find tile for the master bath shower. I really like this tile. I'm hoping I can find something similar. This was from the www.houzz.com app on my phone.
Well that's all for now! Hope everyone is having a great week!
