Always Imitated, Never 100% Duplicated. Put Your Hands Together For the OG: Marble!
Let’s face it, marble has a long history with exteriors and interiors. It has been around for centuries, and it’s not going anywhere. Whether you’re remodeling or simply redecorating, incorporating marble is the easiest way to add a classy yet modern touch to any space!
Sophisticated and timeless, marble is the first choice for luxurious home interiors. Having the power to turn any space into a work of art. Since marble is a natural stone, slabs and tiles vary in veining, adding character to any application. From classic and traditional to farmhouse and industrial interiors, marble can add a glamorous touch.
On the flip side, marble is also the perfect balance to a busy décor. You can easily balance busy textures and/or vibrant colors with it’s subtle beauty!
Yes marble has the girl next door reputation, but in fact marble can also be edgy and bold. Not all white marble features subtle light gray veins, think deep veining with a high contrast and a whole lot of attitude. Marble has the power to transform any room!
Marble everywhere has gone to a whole new level, full slab backsplashes and floor to ceiling walls are taking over homes everywhere. This ultra luxe trend is clean and modern and has us feeling goo-goo eyed.
Accessories with Marble!
From throw pillows to phone cases, marble is popping up everywhere when it comes to decor. (Side note, we’re not complaining, because duh it looks stunning on everything!) Especially if you’re not ready to go full blast Marble mode, you can start by adding a few small accessories that will add a big impact. Adding something as simple as marble print bath accessories to your bathroom, can add just the right touch of luxury.
Have you heard about Azerocare?
For all those worried about etching, staining and all that other good stuff – we introduce you to Azerocare by Antolini Italy. Antolini’s top secret development is unlike anything else. It effectively makes porous stone non-porous. Keep in mind this is not a sealer, it’s the first of its kind factory process. It does not have to be reapplied every few months or years, this is the first permanent treatment done during the cutting and prepping of slabs. And the cherry on top is that there is basically no maintenance. No need for harsh chemical cleaners or special polishes, soap and water will do the trick.

“There’s a reason Marble has been around for hundreds of years – it’s as timeless as it gets in the design world, and every alternative you see does its best to mimic it. One of my favorites is our Calacatta Chiara because can go warm or cool, depending on the client’s color palette, and with its honed finish and pattern, I think a very forgiving Marble option.”
