Over the last few years we’ve noticed the steady return of marble interiors. However, its comeback has ditched its decadent and luxury reputation and taken on a new personality. Stylists and designers have worked hard to transform the trend and give it a new contemporary and chic image by spreading it on statement walls across the home using self-adhesive wallpaper to create a marble wall mural. Meet the modern marble trend…
Black & White Marble
Marble has sophisticated characteristics which are only enhanced more in a black shade. The contrast of white lines on a black background stand out and show off all the intricate details of the pattern. This kitchen and dining room area have featured our Black and White Marble Mural on just one wall and we are loving this look. The gold fleck in the mural complements the table, chair legs and the ceiling light perfectly.

Soft pastel shades have moved from nursery settings to grown-up spaces in recent years. We now recognise pastel interiors for having a contemporary and boho chic style. The key to pulling off the pastel look is to perfect the balance of colour and minimalism. This bedroom has used our Turquoise & Gold Mermaid Marble Mural to enhance the pastel theme in this interior. The combination of light blues with baby pinks is a heavenly combination that gives the bedroom a magical mermaid vibe.

If you are a fan of illusions then liquid marble in the style of mixed paint could be the style for you. The detail of some marble designs can create the illusion that an image is 3D and can add extra depth to any interior. This bedroom has featured our Red Liquid Marble Self-Adhesive Mural as an accent wall and it looks stunning. The deep hue of this design is balanced perfectly in this room by the light pink and white furnishings it’s been teamed up with.

Looking to make a smaller statement? Then a set of poster prints could be the best option for you. This pair of Pink & White Marble Poster Prints have added a splash of colour to this minimalistic bedroom. Posters are a great wall décor option for anyone, but particularly for those who are renting as they can be removed easily.

Combine two of the biggest trends this year – metallic and marble. This Blue Metallic Marble Mural manages to look impressive and stylish without appearing overdramatic. The white border and flooring brightens up the space and maintains a contemporary vibe. This is a great mural to use for a feature wall rather than an entire room due to the rich tones of this design. The Rising Sun Gold Metal Wall Art Mirror adds to this interior by bringing out the gold metallic fleck in the mural.

Traditional White Marble
Last but not least, the traditional marble effect we all know and love that seems to never go out of style! This Traditional White Marble Mural adds some texture and detail to this living room. The contrast of the bright furnishings with the white and grey marble is a classy combination and a good colour pairing for any modern interior.
