GITA JACOBSON, OWNER IN THE DEETS — LAFAYETTE, CA Neolith Beton (sitting room bar hutch) Calacatta Oro marble, honed (kitchen island, perimeter) The materials Jacobson selected for this kitchen and sitting room needed to fulfill separate design qualities, yet work together. For the kitchen, natural stone adds warmth and elevates the space. "We didn't want a rustic farmhouse look," she notes. "Instead, we wanted a material that looked right in the high-end home in which it is used. The Calacatta marble works because of its white and gold veining, the latter of which provides a nice warmth and matches the brass finishes used throughout the kitchen. The other benefit of marble is that, as it ages, it adds to the timeless, classic look they wanted." As a natural material, each piece is also unique, so four slabs were hand selected, then cut and laid out to showcase just the right amount of veining. Conversely, for the sitting room, Jacobson's clients wanted a more industrial look… "something a bit more masculine to accom- modate the husband's preferences," she says, adding that the space also includes a fireplace that is faced with the same Neolith. "The Neolith works well because it looks like concrete, but is extremely durable, which is important since drinks are mixed here." Jacobson juxtaposed the 'cold' concrete look of the Neolith against blue cabinetry with a blue shiplap backsplash that exem- plifies a farmhouse style.
