Marbleizing your home interior, softly

Stripes, chevrons, polka dots, plaids and other common patterns aren’t the only shapes that may grace your home interior. Now marble has transcended its stony properties and made its way into a popular pattern that’s popping up on decor, fabrics and other accessories. It is no coincidence that marbleized designs have appeared on fall 2011 fashion runways, either.

If the idea of marbleized motif looks and sounds a bit 1970s (read: gaudy), think again. Today’s updated looks are colorful, classy and won’t leave your home looking like a hotel or an oversize Easter egg.

For example: Old World overlay with New World color seamlessly meet for a timeless look. A lamp like this can sit on an end table for years, without question.

A faux marble-framed mirror can make a foyer more grand, a lived-in room more formal.
These napkins will complement any solid-colored dishware at the dinner table. Plume them at the place settings for a dramatic effect.

If you’re not feeling bold yet, start out small and inexpensive, such as with a pencil cup and notepad holder. See if you get any compliments from your friends!
When done properly, adding marble touches to your home decor can impress lasting quality on the style and mood of a room.
