Marbled Paper Love | Marbled paper look

I’m really loving marbled papers at the moment which led me to start looking for other marbled items.  Marbling paper is an ancient craft but if used in a fresh way it can be current and contemporary. It was originally meant to mimic the look of actual stone but with the ability to control the colour combinations and it delivers all the style with a fraction of the cost and effort.

How much marbling is too much? A coaster? Or a whole wall?

Jonathan Adler Coasters

If you want just a little touch of marbling try a set of coasters by Jonathan Adler available from Amazon so you can have them pronto!

I’m not sure I’m ready for this yet but if you’re willing to make more of an investment or a big commitment try a whole room of marbled wallpaper. The cost isn’t nearly as high as a wall of actual marble but still pretty labour intense.

South Korean company Metafaux makes this great marbled stool, the photo below is from their site. They have a whole range of colours but this green is fantastic as a wonderful pop of colour, it almost looks like it’s made of playdough.
