Marble Marvel

I feel like I am a little late to the party on this one, but it is something which has become somewhat of an obsession for me in recent weeks so I needed to get something out there about it... marble. White, veiny, clean, cold marble. My god what a stone. But funnily enough, a stone I always thought I hated. I used to think of it as old fashioned, overtly showy and a little Liberace. But now, for some reason it feels fresh and modern again, and luxurious but in the best kind of way.

It must be the love of white interiors and an increased focus on natural materials that has brought it back to life. It is so versatile too. From adding a touch of luxury to a country kitchen (perfect for pastry rolling), or super dramatic against dark greys and copper accents in a more industrial setting - it works in so many ways.

It doesn't have to be expensive either, there are so many mock-marble products on the market and the real deal is totally affordable in carefully chosen accessories. Here are some of my favourites right now...


  1. These  tiles are 100% going in my kitchen if we can stretch the budget. The hexagon shape is super modern and the subtle grey veining adds interest and warmth. A trip to Topps Tiles this weekend to see them in the flesh is definitely on the cards. £5.49 per tile
  2. I love the mix of wood and marble in this pendent lamp from Cox & Cox. Would look perfect almost anywhere in the house. I quite fancy two hanging either side of the kitchen sink... very tempting. £140 each.
  3. Dunelm have an incredible affordable range of bathroom accessories made from real marble. This soap dispenser is £12.99 but other pieces include toilet brushes, soup dishes and marble printed towels.
  4. A marble chopping board looks beautiful propped up against a kitchen wall. This one is £38 from Holly's House
  5. This marble topped coffee table perfectly combines mid-century simplicity and luxury. There are loads around at the moment but this one is from West Elm and is priced at £459
  6. H&M home has a whole host of ceramic products made to look like marble. Not only do they look exactly like the real thing, they are a total steal. This plant pot is £9.99
  7. Finally a cushion with a marble print from Amara, priced at £22. There are loads of fabrics which are carrying the marble trend through to a new dimension from shower curtains to towels and throws. I love the coral edging on this version, keeping it fresh
What do you think? Have you been swept away with this trend or is it one you'll be staying clear of?
