Trend Alert: 10 Coloured Marble Homewares and Furniture Finds
Marble decor might not be going anywhere, but it has been given a slight makeover this year. Coloured marble is one of 2016’s stunning new homewares trends, and I’ve found 11 pieces for your home that you’ll probably lose your mind over.
I’ve long been obsessed with marble myself. I did a recent post on this divine material on the blog to show you that it’s definitely still on-trend. But as with most things that become popular, we find new ways to bring it into the home and coloured marble is now making its presence known.
The other thing I love about marble in general is its ability to bring a sense of luxury and sophistication to a scene at home. This year’s hottest interior design trend, Everyday Opulence, is all about making moments at home feel high-end, and this is exactly what marble does.
When I spoke to Inside Out magazine late last year about the trends to keep and retire in 2016, stylist Danielle Selig also agreed on marble’s timelessness.
“Marble is definitely a strong trend that we don’t really see going anywhere anytime soon,” Danielle told me. “We are seeing a trend towards coloured marble, particularly green, pinks and black, coming through in place of the classic Carrara”.
If you’re feeling the love for coloured marble, you’ll find an entire bevvie of homewares in this post that’ll appeal. Above is one of my favourite finds from the lot though. It comes courtesy of Country Road. The divine Alavo Small Platter is $49.95 and it’d look amazing in the centre of a dining table, coffee table, or on a kitchen bench. Pair it with some golden brass tones or pink flowers and you’re set!
The photo above is from Great Dane. The pieces you see here are called True Colours Vases and they’re available in a variety of hues. Which is your fave? Surprisingly, they’re only $150 too – which is pretty affordable for a piece that’s so striking. I think the blue colour story is the most impressive.
Below are eight other coloured marble homewares and furniture finds for you to sink your designer teeth into. They’re all pretty amazing (especially that fruit bowl), and I’ve included the links for each too so you can click over to the stockist website and purchase if you feel the need.
