How to decorate with marble accents

10 images

The natural beauty of marble makes it a popular choice for decorating, whether in a living room, kitchen or bathroom. In its palest forms, it’s super versatile, allowing you to decorate in pretty much any way you like, while highly veined versions will make a statement in themselves. Here, the traditional marble fireplace is a focal point in a room that has been painted in a modern teal colour. The bold shade creates a strong contrast so that both features – the fireplace and wall colour – appear to stand out equally. The pink sofa makes things even more interesting and reinforces the modern feel of the scheme.
