If you watched the most recent season of the Great Interior Design Challange you may have seen some beautiful, white marbled wallpaper used on a couple of occasions to great effect.
Predictably, I’m now looking around my house to see where I could perhaps use some. Serendipitously, I also came across this gorgeous range of contemporary marbled wallpapers from Murals Wallpaper.
If you follow the current trends in interiors I’m sure you’ll have noticed that marble has become extremely popular. And shows no sign at all of falling out of favour. Of course, marble has always been around for bathrooms and kitchen worktops. But over the last year or so more and more marble home accessories and furniture has appeared (see our recent 6 Best Contemporary Coffee Tables post).
As well as adding sophistication and opulence to your space, the big benefit of marbled wallpaper is that you can use it on as big or small an area as you like.
A feature wall in marbled wallpaper creates a huge impact – as you can see from these beautifully styled images. But if that doesn’t work for you, how about a small space such as a hallway, guest loo or bathroom? Or in the kitchen as a splashback behind glass or as the backdrop to open shelves?
I’ve also seen marbled wallpaper used inside built-in wardrobes, to add an extra touch of glamour to an otherwise very utilitarian and uninspiring space.
Marble is a timeless material, and fits perfectly with lots of different interior styles. Look at it above with this ultra-contemporary furniture and light fitting – it works impeccably.
Of course, top quality marble has a price tag to match. Which is why this marbled wallpaper is as easy on the wallet as it is on the eye.
Created using modern digital printing techniques these prints are all made-to-order and custom-sized, and cost £25.00 per square metre.
