On Board with Design: Whitney Granite Sink in Graphite Gray


Sinkology just launched its new line of granite sinks and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be in love!  The texture and tones of these sinks – which come in three colors – are amazing and sure to create an instant focal point in any kitchen.  To celebrate this new launch, I thought it would be fun to put together a design idea board to show one of the ways I’d style around a granite sink.


First up, I chose the Whitney sink in Graphite Gray.  I’m a huge fan of gray and decided it would be the perfect foundation for this neutral, modern farmhouse design board.  I wanted to move through the spectrum of lights and darks, so I paired the sink with this Pfister Kai Pull-Down Faucet in Matte Black.  The clean lines of the faucet have just enough flair and complement the gray tones of the sink.


I lightened things up a bit with a white ceramic Scandinavian Canister Set

I love the honeycomb detailing off-set with natural wood lids.  The mix of materials feels right at home with the granite sink!  Speaking of mixed materials, this aptly named Marble and Wood Serving Board from Terrain features a combo of natural wood and marble.  The striped effect is right in keeping with this modern-feeling farmhouse design.  Subtle texture and pattern are always a win in my book!

No sink would be complete without some pretty and functional accessories! 


Picking up on the stripes and color palette we’ve got going, I think this Abbot Stripe Hand Towel from McGee & Co. is the perfect addition – either draped over the sink or hanging on a towel hook.  The Barr-Co. Hand Duo in Honeysuckle is icing on the cake, introducing a pretty pink hue (and intoxicating scent!) into the mix. 

Finally, what room couldn’t use a pop of metallic?  I’m really loving the look of knurled pulls lately and these ones from Schoolhouse come in the perfect shade of natural brass.  Just the thing to add a little oomph to this sophisticated, but casual design!
