The celebrations may be long over, but it’s still a new decade, and we’re barely a few weeks into 2020. So while many of us may have ditched those New Year’s resolutions by now, there’s still time to look at how interior design is likely to evolve over the months and years ahead.
Less is more!
It seems that more of us will be using marble in smaller accent and statement pieces, such as perhaps a backsplash, rather than overwhelming with too much of this natural stone.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a massive property to use marble. Consider adding it to smaller spaces. Make a statement entrance with a marble floor for your hallway, or use it in a guest cloakroom. Remember marble also works well as flooring because it’s easy to clean.
In the spirit of ‘less is more’, marble-accented furniture allows you to enjoy statement pieces across your property. Living room and dining room tables with marble tops really can look modern, chic and timeless. So you don’t have to use this stone just in your kitchen or bathroom. Equally, marble tabletops work well in rooms – such as the living room – where you perhaps wouldn’t want a whole wall or floor in it.
We know this may seem to go against what we said about small doses! And marble wall slabs may seem at first like a pretty big commitment. But having a coloured wall slab in marble really can look stunning. So it’s not surprising this has made its way into the list of trends for this year. And just about every room in the house could benefit from it. Think rose marble or light brown or orange to add to a room’s warmth. If you wanted, you could match blankets, pillows and throws plus seat coverings to your wall.
