Marble has been around for centuries and is a metamorphic rock, that has always given an air of opulence and glamour. This timeless classic gives a textured visual look, which creates a wow factor. It has the adaptability to be used in various styles. Pale Marble fits perfectly into a neutral palette, and on trend Scandanavian look. It can also work into a more traditional style, and just adding a touch of it to any room will bring delight. There is a trend to use this sophisticated material not only in kitchens and bathrooms, but also in the form of side tables, and accessories. Lighting has seen some wonderful focus with marble, and even small accessories like bedding and notebooks are very popular at the moment. I am loving the mix of warm metals with marble, as it just adds that extra touch of sophistication, and creates a dynamic impact in a visual way.
I had a look around at some of my favourite pieces that are in the shops, and online, so even if you’re not planning a new bathroom or kitchen you can add some accessories to your look without breaking the bank.
I fell in love with this side table by Atkin & Thyme It has a combination of a white marble top and a geometric powder coated brass metal base. Priced at £159.00 adds a contemporary look at a reasonable price.
This Italian marble pendant light from Nest has a simple elegance and could be used in multiples to create a lighting display. I love the idea of using it in a bedroom on either side of my bed.
Urban Outfitters have really created a range of accessories that have a marble focus. The bedding is really dramatic and would add a visual focus to any bedroom. Priced at £50.00 for a Double Set. I also love the notebook on offer there, which would look cool in my handbag!
