25 marbleous reasons why I love white marble!

Good morning!! If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know my obsession with white marble. For me personally, there simply is no substitute. So, when I have gotten, over time, too many emails to count inquiring about white marble, maintenance, what made me choose it, how its holding up, other possibilities,etc..... I have explained that there simply wasn't a second choice for me......whatever maintenance might be required, was considered a "labor of love" in my book. White marble is the ultimate, timeless, classic, GORGEOUS and works literally with every style home. You simple cannot go wrong people! 

Having lived in my house now for almost 4 months..WOW, I can hardly believe it, I can tell you that the marble is doing beautifully. I am really happy with the sealer that both my installer and fabricator highly recommended and deemed 'best in the market", Dupont Impregnantor sealer which is great for all marbles and limestone's (but of course check with your installer to be sure he agrees)! White marble is as beautiful in a bathroom as it is on kitchen countertops as it is in foyer floor. It just rocks no punt intended.

 So....today 20 beautiful reasons why I am a fan forever in the marble fan club....what do you think? Do you have it? Would you want it? I always reference the way its used in Europe, on everything from the famed Spanish steps where thousands and thousands of feet walk every day to all the pizzerias, cafes, bakeries,etc......its everywhere and still standing! I think that might be the best example as to its endurance and how beautiful it looks even after hundreds of years, there aren't many things you can say that about.  So here we go.......

A few pictures of white marble in my own home, clearly I am a fan for life..................
