Previous homeowner Amy Jackson Smith admits she is “always on the hunt for the next big find.” One of her best discoveries,
several tons of old marble blocks salvaged from a historic theater being torn down in Nashville, is the showstopper of this
kitchen. Honed into 3-inch-thick countertops and a herringbone-patterned backsplash, the marble has a rich luster that gives
the room an immediate sense of age. “Visitors all say, ‘I’ve never seen countertops so thick!’ And they haven’t stained at
all!” says Kelly.
