True Blue Surfaces takes a peek at jaw-dropping interior stone designs from popular TV series.
Part #1: Family Interiors and Stone Kitchen Island Countertops
Happy New Year from True Blue Surfaces!
Surviving the holidays can be a time to hunker-down, stuff our faces, and binge some of our favorite TV shows—especially family dramas. While characters from TV families provide us with a cathartic escape, we can also draw inspiration from their fabulous kitchen design choices.
Big Little Lies
While we certainly don’t want to invite the cat-fighting and murderous moments from HBO’s Big Little Lies into our own homes, we do covet the show’s stunning kitchen designs. You don’t have to be a gossiping Malibu mom to drool over Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) Mackenzie’s over-sized island countertop. The perfect space for spilling secrets or glasses of wine, this black granite island features an impressive overhang with seating for the entire family.
The surrounding countertop stations offer everyone a position from which to hurl accusations or offer heart-felt apologies. Sure, a lot of strife transpires here, but the stone-topped centerpiece offers an isle of support—a magnetic gathering point for the love and warmth that eventually unfolds.
And speaking of warmth…
This Is Us
One of America’s favorite TV couples from NBC’s This is Us, Beth and Randall Pearson embody class and humility while prioritizing loved ones. Why shouldn’t their kitchen reflect those qualities? This welcoming space features stone countertops in a cool, understated gray, wrapping around the kitchen to embrace this affectionate family. We love how the stools nestle neatly under the smooth stone slab. The island is a spot for pancake-making and school projects, and plays host to newly adopted family members and tearful epiphanies. This is a place to live, laugh, and work things out. And the Pearsons always do.
