Throughout many of our blogs, we’ve looked at patterns and how they can reinforce the style of your home. We’ve covered stripes, geometrics, florals and many more but it is important to discuss marble fabrics and the stylish edge they can add to a space!

The beauty of using marble in interior design

Few materials have captured the imagination of decorators as powerfully as marble. From the Pantheon in Rome to the Taj Mahal in Agra, marble has been used by cultures around the world as a status symbol and its popularity remains as strong as ever.

The benefits of using marble in the home

The nature of marble allows it to resist heat, remain easy to clean and is very hard to scratch. Each of these qualities has contributed to marble being a popular choice however there is one aspect which may supersede all of them – its look.

What type of material is marble?

Marble is a beautiful material. The irregular swirls and shapes found within the stone resonate with us like the grains found in natural wood. Its seemingly random movement and form reminds us of a simpler, more natural time and it makes our homes feel comfortable and welcoming.

Is marble expensive?

Marble, however, is far from cheap and it’s simply out of the price range of many of us. That said, there are many ways in which you can enjoy the feel and look of marble for a fraction of the price!

How to use a marble pattern in interiors

There are lifelike alternatives to marble work surfaces and floors which can add the charm of the stone, but you can add it in an even more subtle and charming way with a quality window furnishing.

Marble fabrics

At Blinds Direct, we offer a range of elegant and sophisticated fabrics which perfectly capture the magical essence of marble. What’s more, because we’re not trying to copy the role and function of marble, we can be a little more creative with the colours too!

Whether you’re looking for a Roman blind, curtain, or roller blind, we have some excellent marble options to consider.

Because each of these options have that aesthetic link to nature, you can use them in a range of popular décor themes; however they have a particularly powerful effect on Scandi and Traditional interiors.  

Using marble accessories in the home

When used in the modern day, marble tends to not take centre stage. It might be used in a kitchen island or a worktop, but few homes are adorned with the material. To reflect that using soft furnishings, look to cushions and lamp shades in a soft marble effect.

To make your space harmonise, you can select cushions and lampshades in the same fabric as your marble-effect curtains and blinds. This will unify your space and since the effect isn’t as dominant or bold as say a geometric pattern, it will help your space feel unified and above all, refined.

If you’re not certain which material will work best in your current interior design, you can always order up to eight free samples to see your options in the flesh!

All of our products are handmade here in the UK. Crafted to your exact specifications, our blinds, curtains, cushions, and lamp shades are built to last and will arrive to you with a five-year guarantee.
