Viatera quartz countertop for designing green homes
Viatera countertops fit right in as part of a home design showcase outside Atlanta. Serenbe is a community dedicated to preserving the environment. The first house was built in 2004 on rural land on the outskirts of Atlanta. Today, the community’s 400 homes are designed to connect residents with nature and the arts.
Developers do more than just set aside green space: the community’s philosophy of celebrating and preserving nature is reflected in how it is designed. Everything ties into it, from the location of the houses and the materials used to build them, to the blueberry bushes planted along walkways and the on-site farmers market. Viatera Quartz Surface countertops align perfectly with the ideals of Serenbe and were on full display during the community’s showcase.
Viatera Quartz – Environmentally sustainable materials
For the home design showcase, 12 interior designers worked their magic and produced a fully decorated home, which is open to the community for tours. Visitors are offered a glimpse of the stylish home and the integrated community; designers get to show off their work over two floors of the house. Money raised during the tours supports Ant Farm, a 43-acre artists’ complex that is part of Serenbe.
The showcase was first held in 2014 and was successful enough to be repeated in 2015 and 2016.
Several rooms with Viatera quartz countertops were part of the showcase home, including the laundry room, bathrooms and butler’s pantry. Because the community puts such an emphasis on environmentally sustainable practices, it makes sense to include materials from Viatera.
Viatera quartz countertops meet the high environmental standards
The countertops have several qualifications that make them the perfect fit for an environmentally-conscious community like Serenbe.

Viatera Aria quartz countertops and vanities in bathroom and laundry room
The butler’s pantry countertop is in the color Aria, an alabaster and eggshell backdrop with black marbling throughout. The pantry’s countertop color repeats in the adjoining laundry room, connecting the two areas.
The neutral countertop accommodates both the brilliant white cabinets in the pantry and darker beige paint in the laundry room. The pantry gets a splash of color from the dishes and items stored on the shelves, and from a bright window treatment. The laundry room’s geometric wallpaper provides texture.
The Aria color returns in the bench for the shower. Its black marbling complements the triangular tile on the walls. The single bathroom sink makes use of a neutral countertop in the color Minuet, an alabaster with gray marbling. It pops against the dark beige bead board and chair rail wall treatment, which offsets whimsical, fish-patterned wallpaper.
· Viatera Aria quartz from Musica Collection
Alabaster and creamy eggshell make the perfect backdrop for intricate black marbling. Much like an aria in a Baroque Opera, this pattern doesn’t just repeat itself, it grows more complex and rich with each swirl.

Viatera Minuet for master bathroom quartz countertops
Minuet countertops return in the master closet and for the double sink in the understated master bathroom. The countertop’s gray marbling echoes the dark frames on the mirrors above the sink, which are offset by single wall-mounted lamps.
· Viatera Minuet quartz from Musica Collection
Alabaster with gray marbling gives a rich and luxurious feel. The perfect harmony of colors is reminiscent of the marriage of notes in a minuet.
