"Quarried Just For You"



January 2008

Buon Anno! Happy New Year!

We made it through another glorious holiday season and now our thoughts turn to springtime-The season of new beginnings. New beginnings could mean the installation of new kitchen & bathroom countertop and floors!

With the amazing selection that we have here at Pietra Fina, you will be able to find just what you are looking for. We have a wide spectrum of natural stone for you to choose from, from quiet subtle patterns to exotic colors with beautiful movement. Be sure to check our website for our new arrivals, as we have new materials coming in on a regular basis.

Please take a moment to view the photos below for project inspirations to start the New Year with.

Project Inspirations for 2008

-Enhance Any Room With the Look of Timeless Natural Stone

Natural stone has been known for beauty and luxury. Because of all the different colors and variation found in natural stone, your pattern choices and designs are endless. As a result, stone tile is an easy way to update any room in your house.

Seen here is a classic look of a neutral field tile combined with a contrasting tile border. The beautiful neutral marble tile we see here is called Crema Marfil. It has a beige background with gold and cream undertones that makes it a stone that is easy to adorn. In addition to the layout, a darker marble tile was added to create a border that frames the Crema Marfil. The stone used for the border is called Emperador Brown Dark. It is a rich stone with a dark brown background with ivory and white veining that compliments the Crema Marfil gracefully.  Its natural splendor can contribute a distinct look to any space.

-Make a Statement With Your New Project. Think Exotic!

Think out of the ordinary this season for your new countertops! At Pietra Fina, we hold an amazing collection of stone from around the world. One of our featured exotic stones is Labradorite Boreal. This stone contains a pallet of emerald green, aqua blue, and gold with large iridescent inclusions that is reminiscent of the ocean. The Labradorite Boreal is a stone that definitely catches the eye of all of our visitors who come to our showroom.

This photo was taken at night and shows that the stone still reflects even with the indoor lighting.

The Chanak's, homeowners of this Saratoga Residence, came to Pietra Fina looking for the perfect stone for their kitchen remodel. After seeing many different options, they decided on Labradorite Boreal. The unique pattern and coloration of this material attracts many people. One of their objectives was to showcase as much of the color in the stone as possible. After the stone was delivered to the installer's shop, the homeowners were hands on with the layout process. They were able to select the areas on the slabs they wanted to showcase. The result was stunning. They were able to display the labradorite at its best. The unique stone they selected in combination with their elegant cabinetry makes this kitchen truly unique.

"We are still finding something new to ooh and ahh over. It is hard to describe being so fascinated with a piece of stone"
