All About

Now here's a kitchen in Athens, Texas, that blends luxury with a bit of playfulness. This couple saved about $10,000 on their countertops by going with a less expensive alternative to granite. They chose an Italian-manufactured product called Okite. Made from ground quartz, it's a sustainable material and comes in 90 colors. Next to the island is a pantry with doors made of inexpensive plywood and chalkboard paint. It's a great place to jot down the grocery list.
