before and after: I'm in love with my new foyer floor

The "before" foyer was builder marble surrounded by a metal strip separating it from the rest of the main floor tile. We inherited it with the house. I.hated.it.
So when the time came to do some demo work in the kitchen and make the house a mess, I decided it was a good time to add to it. And boy did it add to it! Tile demo creates the biggest mess! The broken pieces flew everywhere and dust settled on everything.
But the mess and clean up was all worth it with this result...
I.love.it!
We did a natural granite tile with a border of our limestone and a 4x4 brown tile accent.
It looks like it was always there and a planned part of the original main floor.
That was my hope and vision and I'm so happy with the way it turned out. Yeah!
