For those who used (or are familiar with) caesarstone colors

I am using London Grey for my island. I am strongly considering Piatra Grey for the perimeter. Is that too much pattern for these contrasting countertops?

All white cabinets and island. Transitional style house.

Thanks!

We used London Grey on the perimeter and Caesarstone Pebble on the Island. You will love the London Grey, it has depth. We did see the Piatra in the showroom. The Piatra Grey has nice light grey and white veining and is patterned throughout. While I do not believe it has too much pattern and was nice the Piatra did not possess the same authenticity as the London Grey or Frosty Carrina. It may have been the showroom install. If you are worried about having too much pattern take a look at Caesarstone Raven-4120. Good luck!

Thanks! I am very excited about the London Grey (I had my heart originally set on marble....but that just won't work for my family). I'll take a look at the Raven also.

I have the Piatra Grey combined with a real Carrara marble BS. The two work together because the contrast is high enough. If they were similar in color or with less of a contrast, then perhaps some patterning issues might develop. The London Grey (which I considered) has less distinct veining.
