Marble Madness

Marble has made an impressive comeback in interior design, but it’s worth mentioning the new rules at play. In most cases, gone are the days of ornate sculptures and large, cold rooms encased in floor-to-ceiling stone. When you imagine marble as a design element in the modern home, think small doses – accent walls, counters, and statement pieces.

And what are some of the different types of marble? Carrara is generally white, grey, or blue/grey. Statuary marble has uniform background with light gray tones and dramatic veining. Calacatta is white with dark veining. Emperador comes in different shades in brown. And crema marfil comes in many tonal variations.

So, let’s look at a few ways that marble, can make a room marvelous.

As a divider between one space and the next...

As a fireplace...

Or a cool, sleek bar...

In the bathroom…

In the kitchen...

In the dining room...
