I thought since we have been talking furniture and interior decorating, it might be fun to see inside each other's homes.

Copper. It is unusual, beautiful and would probably fit your style.

My next countertop may be recycled glass.

Love, love, love how you have no "clutter". I would love to post pics of my house as while it is not big, I think it has a very comfortable, warm feeling to it and I take pride in making it a home, not just a house.

Ah yes, do you mean the terrazzo made with recycled glass? Some of it is gorgeous.

There is one company in particular who has a recycled glass product that does not require a sealant. That's the one I want. I googled and this is the first link that included any pictures, but I have seen some more up-close pictures that were beautiful.

I had seen these:

which look sort of like terrazzo. I really like them, and they remind me of the bottle glass I used to collect on the beach as a kid.

Those are very pretty. And more environmentally friendly than the ones I had posted. I wonder the sealing requirements on it. I saw another company that made some that looked similar to that, but required sealing once or twice a year and I am kind of lazy and forgetful. I would really like those in my bathroom though. I'm bookmarking that.

I was just going to mention recycled glass counters. I saw some on HGTV a couple of years ago in one of those kitchen shows that were just gorgeous.

That's the kind I saw. They are just lovely.
