Creamy Granite Roundup

wawCooksMay 6, 2013

Please provide the names of all the creamy colored (background) granite you know of. We love Crema Delicatus (Brazil) and Colonial Cream (India) and would like to know what else we should look at when we go to pick out our slabs. We understand that different places have slightly different names for granite but if you have a granite with a cream background, please share the name? (We have a lovely black slate floor and are planning cream cabinets and the wall is Blair Gold (BM) which does not go with Colonial Cream but DOES coordinate well with Crema Delicatus. CD can be very busy and heavy or light and creamy so we have a hunt on our hands to find the slab with just the right amount of cream :) so might as well know what else we should check out at the same time :) Thanks in advance. Pictures would be very welcome! Cheryl

We are using Prada Gold. The slabs I found are much creamier than most other lots.

We are using a granite called Romance, which I am told is part of the Shivakashi family...we are pairing it with mostly cream cabinets except for the darker color on the island, fridge and hutch. Might be darker than you are looking for, though.

We are going with White Macaubas / sometimes called Calcutta Quartzite. Here's a link to the slab picture.

AlyB's stone (and cab colors) are the same as mine. Our supplied called it Kashmir Creme. I found the names are inconsistent throughout stone yards and perhaps even regionally.

Such great creamy granite pictures. Ohhhhh. Thank you all so much!!! DH and I have fallen in love with something that seems to be called Alpine White by stone yards here. I'd love to post a picture but I am not sure how to do it from my cell phone.
