I’m accustomed to my wife stealing French fries off my plate, but stealing my design samples? Well, that’s a first! My wife, Melissa Morgan, is an interior designer in Orange County, CA. Her aesthetic is very modern with clean lines. When chatting with like minded designers on Twitter recently, we discovered Polycor and their line of beautiful, natural stones. We immediately jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with them, hence the reason for this blog post!
While reviewing my favorite Polycor natural surfaces for an upcoming blog post, “top ten surfaces for a men’s bathroom” , my wife went crazy for the new line. She loved the movement, the veining and the texture of the marble so much that we called Polycor THAT day and placed an order for several samples.
When the Etowah marble sample arrived to our office, it didn’t leave her hand all day. I tried to get it back, but Melissa had other plans.
“I have an idea!” she said. “How beautiful would this look in a glamorous bachelorette kitchen? It would add such an organic vibe. These are mine now, you will have to get your own!” And with that, an idea was born.
So, please join Melissa, myself, and Polycor as we share ideas + a moodboard to help create the perfect kitchen for any sophisticated woman. And don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter to win an exciting giveaway!

“When designing a kitchen I will usually start with the hard surfaces, and when you start off with something inspiring the rest of the elements fall into place. I fell in love with the Marble Etowah, it had such a great texture and the blush color inspired me to design a Bachorlette Kitchen that was glamorous and organic.” says Melissa.
“The words Luxury, glam, organic and natural are not often found together when describing a space, let alone a kitchen. But I really wanted to create a space that was feminine, relaxed and fun.”
“For the Island I selected an Ethowa marble slab with copper pendants lights by Tom Dixon.”
“I chose a white oak wide plank by Warren Christopher for the flooring.”
“On the back counter I chose the Limestone Saint Clair Fleury in honed finish. It’s a warm grey that’s super smooth and the marble-like properties make this truly a winner.”
“For the sink I again choose a copper basin. Can you see a theme here? Wood, Stone copper…repeat!”
“Finally for the bar stools, I went with Lucite and velvet. I never said it was going to be 100% natural, but it’s definitely 100% gorgeous! Thank you Polycor for the inspiration. I think we’re going to need a second set of samples!”
