I think its safe to say that one of the interior decor protagonists for 2016 was MARBLE. No longer relegated to the bathroom or kitchen tiles, this year saw a diverse range of inspired applications for this stone. From coffee tables & decorative accessories such as wall clocks and uber cool trays, coasters, candle holders etc to wall paper & prints for laptop and phone covers – a quick search for #marble on Instagram or Pinterest could easily turn into a “2hrs later, still browsing” type of situation. :)
Fun facts about marble:
- A metamorphic rock, meaning it was formed out of another rock after eons of heat and pressure, marble is formed out of pure limestone.
- Primarily white in colour, marble comes in other colors as well.
- The Taj Mahal in India is made entirely of marble.
So, on that note today’s post is a spotlight on some decor inspiration I’ve bookmarked that incorporate this oh-so-stylish stone. xo!
