A black and white contrasting color scheme allows for a crisp yet classic appeal. Often a soothing color combination, black and white is a great addition to any home new and old. This color scheme is especially great in the bathroom, as it can add the sophistication you are looking for.

The dark color and white natural veining of black marble offers a non traditional feel to natural stone. The presence of a black marble accent can bring your space to life! We’re in love with the material because of it’s many uses, not to mention it’s natural beauty.
