Countertops are more than just an afterthought! We work on them, eat off them and they represent some of the most vital surfaces in our homes, so they matter. Interior designer Anne-Marie Barton likes to start with the countertops, and base her entire palette of ideas from there. Follow along as she walks you through countertop selection, starting with a trip to the slab yard to see a world of options including limestone, travertine, marble and quartzite. She’ll show you beautiful alternatives to commonplace granite tops that are a bit too full of drama for the more calm and peaceful palettes of today’s design trends.
