Crushing On: Marble

My house is currently a disaster. There is dust everywhere from the drywall mud, piles of painting supplies, baseboards that need to be installed, boxes of flooring, and lumber. So occasionally it is nice to escape and look at pretty pictures on pinterest.  This month I am crushing on marble. Normally my mind immediately goes to marble counters, floors and backsplashes, but I’d like to show examples of other uses for marble (faux or real) around your house.

Marble dishes are so chic and can be dressed up or down. The gold flatware looks especially nice with these plates.

A more neutral look is also pretty. Very classy!

For someone who rarely uses trays, I sure have a lot of them. I think I might need to add a marble one to my collection. Beautiful!

I love the raw marble of these bookends. Still just as pretty as polished marble.

    I love marble but I think I would want it for countertops and around the shower walls. I can relate to drywall dust, baseboards and paint all over the house. We finished our living room, family and part of the kitchen (still need new cabinets) a week before Thanksgiving. We have our bedroom left and we are finished. (We also had the yuck of getting rid of popcorn ceilings.) We were so tired of all of it and I kept telling my husband I’m done I can’t do anymore. Everyone kept telling me once it’s done you will appreciate all the work you did and love the transformation. I still don’t appreciate the work but I do love the transformation. Carpet is gone and cleaning the floors is much easier and quicker (about 45 minutes quicker) than vacuuming.

    I needed a new backsplash behind my kitchen counter a couple years ago, and found a roll of marble-look wallpaper at Goodwill for $1….yes, it looks just like real marble! And shortly afterward, I began seeing pictures of real marble backsplashes being the new luxury item for kitchens! I was pretty proud of myself for being ahead of the trend–and for a LOT cheaper!! Yay! Thanks for showing all the beautiful choices for marble–it is so timeless, classic and adds elegance to any space.

    I love marble window seals. My mother’s house had them in the 60s and I still love them. Also, doorway transitions to adjacent rooms. Beautiful.

    I absolutely adore anything marble! Currently I am on a mission to inject a little bit of marble (and gold) into the decor of each room in my house! It just makes such an elegant statement and is timeless to boot!
