Last year I was obsessed with tasteful white Carrara marble (I now have a collection of polished pastry boards and candleholders from Etsy). But recently I've been really into ugly marble.
You know the kind I'm talking about: green, slightly stained (we'll call it "wabi-sabi"), maroon, and even pink. I like it all mixed together and lately I'm noticing, well, I'm not the only one. Here are 10 of our favorite new uses for colored marble in interiors:
Above: A master bathroom clad in Brescia Violetta, an extremely rare marble, in a London Victorian townhouse by Rundell Associates.
Above: A London apartment designed by Rose Uniacke features an original navy colored marble fireplace.
Above: A penthouse bath by UK designer David Hicks featuring a dark-veined marble sink.
