Caesarstone Georgian Bluffs
Georgian Bluffs is the first of ten quartz materials from Caesarstone that we want to feature in blogs over this year. We are able to offer this excellent stone with an additional discount. It is already great value, so a further price cut makes it really worth looking at, even on a tight budget.
Georgian Bluffs is a beautiful subtle grey, marble-look quartz worktop stone. This material could work equally well in a modern contemporary kitchen as in a traditional, classic scheme.
Georgian Bluffs is ideal to hold a two (or three) colour kitchen together. Having more than one colour of unit is very popular at the moment, but without care a kitchen can look like a hotch-potch of colours with no unifying theme. In the worst case, the impression is of random units bought on eBay. A single colour of worktop can deal with that.
In creating this Georgian Bluffs moodboard I wanted to include a strong classic blue colour palette. This shows how this lovely quartz can be used with colours like 2020’s Pantone of the Year, Classic Blue.
What colour units under Caesarstone Georghian Bluffs? I love the Smalt 255 rich blue from Little Greene which would be a great choice as a stunning island colour teamed with wall runs in French Grey 161, from the same company. I have also included French Grey 163 as a stronger accent colour. (Samples courtesy of the ever-helpful staff at Doves in Caterham)
For something darker on the island you could try no. 1 from the Sapphire Springs colour chart form Dulux. Some of our customers like to choose two contrasting worktops to go with their units, to make a statement in the worktops rather than in the colour of the units; for this I have chosen Lundhs Blue natural granite as a darker option. We buy Lundhs stone through Culliford of Kingston. But you could equally go with a bright white as a total contrast e.g. Caesarstone Pure White or our own Affordable White quartz.
For a practical splash-back I have selected two options: glass and traditional metro-style 225 x 75mm tiles. The tiles are in a high gloss finish colours in the creamy Hadleigh and light grey Dunwich from the Artisan range by Winchester Tiles, with many thanks to Barge Tiles in Lingfield for the loan of these. For more of a feature consider fitting them in a herringbone pattern.
For the glass I have selected four colours that go beautifully with the Georgian Bluffs quartz:- Pure White Shimmer, Cornflower Shimmer, Slate and Forget Me Not from Southern Counties Glass. Pure White Shimmer can work in almost any colour scheme in any kitchen. It really contrasts with the Georgian Bluffs and may serve to brighten a darker kitchen.
The Barge Tile Company also helped us with flooring samples, so we have them to thank for the lovely Ibis Cloud and Ibis Mist from the Floor and Wall Tile Company. For a more dramatic statement I love the Pompeii 8115V from Original Style Tiles.
The gorgeous material for blinds from Blinds Direct is Arena Delia Blue Bell. It picks up beautifully the classic blue of the Smalt and both shades of the French Grey, as well as the Georgian Bluffs itself. I know that not everyone is so keen on florals; our lovely friends at Charlwood Interiors helped me pick out Chika Tatami Stripe 223605, a lovely linear print from Sanderson,
To complete the look, I have combined with some lovely strong blue accessories from Homesense.
