Nina suggests pairing marble surfaces with clear or painted glass accessories, such as these boxes and vase from Bungalow 55.
GO WITH THE GRAIN
Porous as it may be, marble remains a sought-after material for home surfaces because of its rarity and the elegant effect it adds to interiors. What’s most alluring about the stone, though, is the captivating look of its veins, formed as a result of being exposed to centuries of high temperature and intense pressure, causing the creation of calcite crystals within the metamorphic limestone. Fantasy Marble, on the other hand, is designed by high pressure laminate producer Formica and replicates the undulating essence of natural marble grain, while allowing homeowners the liberty of adding the texture to any surface, with the bonus of easy maintenance.

the expert says
“The Fantasy marble look is great for creating an instant monochrome scheme and an urban vibe. It can be used on its own. I like to use it to make a statement in an entrance hallway. It is versatile and easy to work with to create a soothing, restorative environment. You can complement the look with wood, metal and glass elements. It can go with well with blue, black, white and green.”
