colorful granite with black and white floor

bec3July 2, 2012

I would love to see pictures of colorful granite counters with black and while floors and walls. I am considering typhoon bordeaux granite for my bathroom vanity but really love a marble and basketweave tile rug look for the floor. Will they two styles clash or just be eclectic? I want it to look right. Thanks in advance!

Go to and search on black and white floor. There will be hundreds of photos to look at. I think marble or any grey/white counter would be lovely.

Here is a link that might be useful:

It's not the styles, but the colors.

Typhoon bordeaux is strongly pinkish/rust/warm creamy yellow. With black and white marble you have a clash of undertones, cool versus warm, and they will not look good to most people.

If you use that granite, look for a marble with similar color tones.
