Travertine to the rescue!

We love Travertine and decided to get rid of the ugly gray tile and install Travertine.
We decided on Philadelphia Light in a Versaille pattern. When I first saw it in a showroom, I thought it was too busy.  Later we were invited to see a Contractor's home with the Travertine installed.
We fell in love with it.  In fact, the Contractor has also installed in on some walls, around posts and columns.
We had it installed throughout the downstairs, except for the Living room. We absolutely love it and wondered why we didn't install it sooner.  What a difference...warm, easy to clean, inviting... I think one of the problems that led us to delay installing this new floor was the removal of the old tile.  I believe having the right people is the key.  A crew removed and  cleaned up and installed our new floors in a week. Fantastic!



          I am linking up with Susan for Metamorphosis Monday.
            Stop by her site to see the beautiful transformations.
Thanks for visiting and I do appreciate you taking time out of your day to visit and leave me a comment. Have a great day!
