10 Statement Rooms That Use Marble In Non-Boring Ways

There’s more to life than Carrara.

By Chanel Dror

We’ll never tire of marble — of this we are certain — but we’d be lying if we said we haven’t tired of certain predictable applications of it. Then again, as far as played out trends go, we could do worse than classic marble paired with crisp white and polished brass (how do you stay mad at that?) Right now, however, what we’re loving is marble (and other veiny natural stones like it) used in totally unexpected ways, creating spaces that make you say, “Wow.” Below are ten interiors that incorporate marble in ways you’ve perhaps never seen before. Subtle or statement-making, it’s amazing how versatile the shining stone can truly be.

Pair it with cabinets painted in an unexpected jewel-toned color and brass drawer pulls, like in Brooklyn Decker’s Texas kitchen.

Alex Van Der Sluys takes a big risk in her kitchen by pairing a bold granite backsplash and countertops with reflective brass cabinet fronts, and a pink island. We think it paid off.
