Colourful Marble

Classic milky white marble finishes have been a firm favourite for a number of years. However, the trend is evolving in terms of colour and vibrancy. Combining our love of natural materials, colour and pattern. Colourful marble options embrace a more decorative approach.

The colourful marble trend is being used in a number of unexpected ways, on bedding, tableware and wallpaper, to name just a few. Colourful, or bold and monotone work just as well with this reinterpretation of marbles classic natural patterning.

Decorative Marble Effect

Matt and gloss combinations of gentle Carraras add a decorative and unexpected twist. All whilst retaining the seamless space and timeless elegance.

Gentle transparency and soft grey hues are more popular this season. Gentler and less aggressive than marbles of previous years. Coupled with contrasting finishes, such as concrete, adds an urban touch. In contrast, gentle colour combinations can add a hint of warmth and personality.

Dark Marble Effect

This trend is a darker and more tonal take on the traditional light hued marble, adding a real sense of depth.

Fuse variations of deep grey marbles to radiate indulgence, offering a relaxing spa-like feel. As a result, these distinctive, veined marbles are bold and elegant, a perfect partner to the gentler timeless Carrara.

The stylistic addition of dark metalwork embraces the industrial trend and gives marbles a new look. Therefore, modern taps and shower fittings combined with edgy interior design give a mood more evocative of New York brownstone.
