These days, stylish decor and marble are synonymous. This beautiful stone has been a timeless classic in interior design for decades, used as surfaces in kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms.

Recently a new rendition of the marble trend has emerged. Bold marble decor!

This trend is all about taking the classic look to the next level, elevating this luxurious stone.  If you’re looking to introduce this trend to your home, you have to go big or go home.

What’s the trend?

When it comes to elegant, natural textures, nothing elevates the space quite like marble does. How does bold marble differ from regular marble, though? Really, it’s just marble with more colour and deeper veins.

Traditionally, marble has been associated with a neutral colour palette of whites, creams, and greys. However, the bold marble decor trend kicks it up a notch incorporating bright and bold colours. Think rich greens, deep blues, and vibrant pinks, all swirling together in a striking marble pattern.

Incorporating bold marble into your home

Basic bold marble

One of the easiest ways to incorporate the bold marble decor trend into your home is through accessories or decor pieces.

This could be something as simple as a marble vase, a set of coasters, or a scatter cushion. The key is to choose pieces with a bold marble-style design and daring colour palette.

Decor tip: Choose a maximised vase with swirling pink and purple marble, it’s sure to make a statement on any coffee table or mantelpiece.

Not so subtle…

If you’re feeling a little more daring, why not consider incorporating bold marble decor into your furniture? A coffee table with a bold marble top can add a real ‘wow’ factor to your living room. Or, make a striking first impression with a bold marble backsplash on a kitchen wall, or even an entire marble-tiled wall.

Go big, make a splash

Another way to incorporate this decor trend is through wallpaper. While this may seem like a daunting prospect, a bold marble wallpaper can be a relatively easy and affordable way to transform a room.

Again, the key is to choose a wallpaper with a bold swirl in the marble and a daring colour palette.

Mix and match

Don’t be afraid to mix and match your marble swirls. Traditionally, marble has been used uniformly, but the bold marble decor trend is all about breaking the rules. Consider mixing a pink marble coffee table with a green marble vase, or layering a bold marble wallpaper with a statement rug featuring a contrasting pattern.

The new bold marble decor trend is a fun way to incorporate a classic design element into your home. It suits both minimal and modern schemes and is a great way to introduce texture and colour into a room.

Whether you choose to incorporate it through accessories, furniture, wallpaper, or a combination of all three, the key is to embrace the bold design and daring colours and patterns that define this trend.
