Marble is been around us for centuries, has survived the test of time from the Ancient Greeks to the era of social media. Considered one of the most desired ‘it girl’ trends for the past four years, marble products are still standing strong on our Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards. No doubt marble is here to stay.
We have seen marble texture products appearing everywhere! It’s been used as an inspiring pattern in almost every single design field; print design, fashion design, interior design, product design…it’s pretty clear we are talking about a multidisciplinary trend.
Interior design came up first, setting a milestone bringing marble slabs back to the market. We were all scared it would go all classic again! But it gracefully found its way into modern interior design, completely changing the game!
Kitchen and bathroom are the best rooms to house a good dose of marble; countertops, backsplashes, tiles, flooring, mounted wall units and cabinetry are the most popular.
However, it’s better not to overdo with the amount of marble you use in a room, you don’t want your home to look like a Carrara’s marble quarry! Marble should only be used for specific areas and carefully mixed with wood or other modern and natural materials, thus creating luxurious accents that should never be too classic.
Living and bedroom areas have a great potential for marble too. Just think of a beautiful accent wall behind your bed, maybe in a muted dusty pink shade, it’ll look so classy! Place a lovely marble tray filled with candles and a bowl of potpourri on your coffee table, or add few framed marble prints to your gallery wall. To sum up, there are countless ways you can fit some marble love into your home.
But why is marble so desirable? The main reason is that marble is considered a luxury item, it’s easy to combine and very chic. So, wouldn’t you like to have a luxury item at a more reasonable price point? We all would!
Many designers have gotten inspired and came up with smaller design objects, it was such a smart idea to convert marble texture into a trendy and pretty cool print.
Get your share of the most coveted items available online. All at a very accessible price. Go gals, it’s marble time!
