Marble has always been with us and, as its part of my family heritage (my family are from Carrara), I have quite a few small decorative pieces but it’s now resurfacing as the hot new interiors trend to be used on all surfaces, and in any room in the house from beautiful, but austere, bathrooms clad entirely in marble, to lighting and accessories. Whatever your budget there is plenty of scope for joining the trend. Here’s 3 ways to use marble in your home, with 3 different budgets in mind:

If you really want to splash out this has to be the ultimate in marble envy for lesser mortals – a sink, worktop and splash back in…..marble. En masse it can be quite cold but the addition of a wooden shelf helps to soften the look but I would prefer brass taps to add even more warmth.
A beautifully simple marble and brass side table to bring urban glamour into your life. The simplicity of the round marble top is enhanced and warmed by the addition of brass spoked legs which give it a timeless appearance suited to any décor. For me marble always needs softening, either by colour or texture, to counteract its hard lines and a pink velvet chair is the perfect way to do this this, as it enhances the clean lines of the table and adds warmth.
And now the easy, and cheap way, to bring the trend into your décor – accessories. With increased technology marble effects can be applied to any surface realistically and cheaply. A melamine marble effect tray, not only for carrying your cuppa to the armchair but to use for styling vignettes. We love this tray for its simplicity and practicality.
Here’s my top 6 picks of how to get the look with accessories and furniture:
