BLANCO recently introduced Biscotti, a warm new color to its SILGRANIT II sink collection. Biscotti is an earthy, natural color that coordinates well with today’s popular solid-surfaced countertops and tiled backsplashes. It has a toasty indulgent, creamy look… an enticing and romantic sink wrapped in a delicious cookie color.
“Color is an important part of our environment, especially in the ways it’s used to remodel our kitchen,” says Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “The current trend leans to natural earth tones that give warmth. Biscotti is THE new neutral that is softer than the traditional caramel and complements a wide range of surfaces.”
What better way to demonstrate the true versatility of Biscotti than to ask our elite group of designers/bloggers what countertops they would match with it. It’s an interesting question that – as expected – offered up an even more interesting response. The designers varied in colors from lights to darks and in materials from Caesarstone, to wood, to slate. Scroll down to view the surfaces the Design Council specified.

“It’s a rich color, Biscotti! I’ll go the glam route and recommend one of my favorite surfaces, Black Lace slate. http://www.vermontstructuralslate.com/stones/slate/black-lace. It’s at once rustic and glossy, and the Biscotti surface is a perfect counterpoint, which makes each surface pop. This combination also offers an interesting cool/warm shade combination. The contrast of light and dark colors can be designed into surrounding decorative elements, perhaps varying the shades a bit.”

“I’d love to see a Biscotti SILGRANIT II sink paired with either Caesarstone 6350, Chocolate Truffle counter or a counter made made from Caesarstone 4120, Raven. The neutral tone of BLANCO Biscotti looks terrific when paired with another, near-neutral counter material.”

“I’d like to see a Biscotti-colored sink paired with a wooden counter fabricated of Edge Grain Burmese Teak from Grothouse Lumber.”

I love Casesarstone’s Buttermilk with the Biscotti sink, although I have recently used with Antracite also. I usually pair the sink to the top and not the other way around!
