Liiiilllllooooo ! I have a question :)

Lillo, what did you end up getting for you marble surfaces in your bathroom. I thought once you were looking at a Thassos because you wanted white white white. If you have the Thassos, have you been happy with it? Are you happy with the white? I saw your shower that you posted yesterday on the other thread and was wondering what that tub deck is. I think I see mostly white but maybe some gray streaks.

I have recently been thinking that the carrara I selected will be too gray or busy with my other elements. I am going to the stone yard tomorrow for them to pull out my remnant I put a deposit on last spring, so I can look. They have a Vietnamese white marble that is cheaper and to me looks like Thassos. The stone man said it is like Thassos. I like the simple white visual. If I can switch out my stone I might go with the Vietnamese. So any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Hi Enduring, I used the calacata marble for the floor , tub surround and counters . The slab that I got and fell in love with was mostly white with little greenish streaks . I was going to use the white thassos tile for the shower and floor . However I changed my mind for the shower and went with white porcelain , because of maintenance issues . I chose the calacata marble for the floor , because my husband thought the white thassos too blend . I am posting a picture for you of the tub surround .
I hope this info is helpful to you .

Thanks Lillo, I appreciate the information. I will be going to the stone yard today and see what I see :)

Good luck , it wasn't easy to find this slab . I just found it in one place only out of at least 10 . I was told that what they get now is mostly with a lot of grey . keep me posted.
