While we quite frequently explore the virtues of classical white marble countertops for kitchen, bath and accents, simple white is not the only option available when it comes to marble surfaces. Another popular option we carry is Bardiglio Nuvolato marble, which takes the traditional white options for marble and turns them on their head.
This is because Bardiglio marble is a more clay-rich metamorphic rock, though it is quarried in the same Appenine Mountain region that produce the sought-after white marbles like Carrara, Venatino and Callacatta. Bardiglio has the same gorgeous texture and finishes, and comes in darker tones as light veining plays across a darker base surface in unique movements. This darker base color can make a luxurious imprint on areas where lighter marble would not work, or can give an amazing contrast or detail to white marble or white traditional surfaces. With Bardiglio marble, you can get the sought-after properties of marble but do something outside of the ordinary. Read More→
This month’s Green Builder Magazine includes a large section devoted to gorgeous green building materials that are not only environmentally friendly and made with sustainable practices, but are also made in America so that you know they have the triple advantage of creating domestic jobs, reducing the impact of overseas shipping and making use of locally-sourced domestic materials. Even better, you don’t have to travel far and wide to find two of the featured items – just to any one of our four Atlanta Design Centers!
Of course, one of the magazine’s featured products was Cambria, from which 93% of each slab is quartz quarried from North America, then stylized with pigments and secured with resin to make one of the most durable and beautiful kitchen countertop materials available on the market today. The article provided a gorgeous example of the Bellingham design profile, one of over 100 different options you can find at Construction Resources. Slabs come in 55″ by 120″ and come in thicknesses from 1 cm for surface finishes and 2 or 3 cm for countertops. Read More→
Our American Society of Safety Engineers and American Institute of Architects continuing education class at the Decatur Design Center was a great success! This class was a two-hour educational opportunity for both professionals and do-it-yourselfers.

One of TV’s most well known cooks and criminals for his portrayal of Walter White the chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin in Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston, is also one of the most outspoken environmental sustainability actors and it shows in his California dream home. The home was an attempt to use the greenest materials, and elevate the idea of what it meant to be a green home. From energy-efficient appliances and LED lights to Cambria countertops and rainwater reclamation efforts, there’s no part of the home that goes to waste.
Cranston chose Cambria both for its beauty, local production and world-class sustainability, and includes Cambria throughout the home for a matching inner harmony. Devon from the Desert Collection adorns the kitchen countertops, which are adored for the ease of cleaning and its resistance to stains. Bathrooms enjoy Templeton, also from the Desert Collection, to match with the soothing palette of warm grays – a play on the traditional whites that allows for splashes of color with the decor. In addition, Cambria is used for closet ledges, bookshelves and other places where its strength, durability and ease of cleaning could come in handy.
If the idea of a sustainable home is right up your alley, you can visit our CR Home Design Centers in Buckhead today to see the largest selection of Cambria in the southeast, including the Desert collection and the other over 100 design profiles of the material.
