I may be a summer person, but after eight months of winter I don’t think I look forward to Spring styles like I do any other season.

However, after some quick research and realization that we really love maraschino cherries and red wine (not together mind you) we decided white countertops were just not for us. Luckily, moody interiors have never seemed more approachable and it only took a few Pinterest scrolls for us to commit to our dark countertops.
