We’ve seen the Instagram flat lays, bought the phone case and contemplated the kitchen – the marble trend has well and truly carved its way onto the style list for yet another year!
Deriving from the Greek term ‘marmareos’, which means glistening, marble has been an essential material since ancient times. But over the last couple of years, marble has made a serious style comeback, and you don’t have to save up for the real thing – faux marble can look just as fab, with the right styling.
Everyone’s favourite photogenic surface isn’t going anywhere, with this luxurious material translating out of its traditional home in the bathroom and kitchen, to clothing, soft furnishings and home accessories. Here’s our take on how to style marble in your home, now…
Let your walls do the talking
We do love a statement wall, and there’s no denying that marble effect wall coverings bring a luxe touch to your living area or bedroom. Marble’s a neutral, so pair it with similarly simple and elegant styles to make a fresh impact. Our Broadwick sofa provides the perfect neutral canvas – alternatively, our Miss Behaving chair in millennial pink adds colour. Check out this gorgeous wallpaper from Happy Wall
Sleek home accessories
If you like the look of marble but a statement piece is a little loud for your taste, marble effect accessories are the perfect middle ground for you. Whether this is cushion covers, plant pots or lamps, work marble as a neutral and you can’t go wrong!

It’s not just black and white
Colourful marble is the next iteration of this trend – greens, pinks and blue all add edge to this classic texture.
