Designer Spotlight | Twelve Stones Designs
Twelve Stones Designs of Austin, Texas is an award-winning design firm specializing in the subtle art of kitchen and bathroom design. When a client approached the firm with a request for an open plan kitchen design featuring natural-looking materials that were also low-maintenance and long-lasting, proprietress Christy M. Bowen turned to Caesarstone to provide the perfect balance between form and function.
The client initially requested marble and quartzite---both materials that, while beautiful, are pricey and require continual upkeep. The team at Twelve Stones Designs steered the client towards Caesarstone in Dreamy Marfil, a creamy beige quartz shot through with soft brown veins that mimicked the look of marble without the myriad issues associated with marble countertops such as chipping and staining.
As an added bonus, Caesarstone countertops are a lot more budget-friendly than marble or quartzite – definitely something that’s of concern to anyone undergoing an expensive project such as a kitchen re-design.
Another reason for choosing Dreamy Marfil was to create a light and airy feel that would carry through the kitchen and into the laundry room. You’ll also see that the team did work in stone tiles along the wall, perfectly meeting the client’s wish for a natural look.

Here’s a closer look at the kitchen. We love how Twelve Stones Design was able to create a very clean and uncluttered feel that flows from the kitchen to the dining area. This is one kitchen that must be an amazing space for entertaining.
We also love how Twelve Stones Designs used a mix of light and dark cabinetry to contrast with the countertops and add a bit of visual variance to the room. What a fabulous project! It’s no surprise that Thermador awarded Twelve Stones Designs a regional prize in their annual Kitchen Design Contest for this beautiful, inventive kitchen design.
