If there's one design trend you can always count on to elevate a space instantly, no questions asked, it's marble. Whether it's Carrara, Calcutta, or statuary, marble evokes sophistication and elegance, and while the classic, neutral shades will always have a special place in our hearts and homes, we're obsessing over a bolder version: green marble.
Not only can green marble enhance a variety of color schemes, but it's an unexpected, refreshing way to bring in a bright color. From chartreuse to emerald, we just can't get enough of this design trend. If you're considering updating your space, consider this your go-to guide.
Opt for Green Details
If a statement wall or backsplash feels like too much green for you, start out with something smaller. You can incorporate green marble in your space without it feeling too bold by opting for smaller decor, like the marbled green vase in this dining nook. This little accent piece achieves the same air of sophistication, just on a smaller scale.
Cue the Classic Countertops
An at-home bar is a great place to experiment with green marble. Since this bar is in a small nook, the green marble's swanky, rich aesthetic doesn't feel too bold or overpowering. Plus, the burnt-orange upholstered walls add a formal touch to round out the space.
Try the Unexpected
As much as we love a forest-green marble piece, there's nothing quite like chartreuse to make us melt. The nightstand steals the show in this master bedroom—we love how it pops against the industrial concrete wall and the purple bedding for an unexpected contrast.
Use Tiles Wisely
Who says you can only feature one shade of marble in your home? Even within this sprawling kitchen, there are upwards of three tones of green marble—and the result doesn't feel at all chaotic. The tiles of the black splash are dark, warm, and bright all at the same time.
Find Your Balance
This living room is a gorgeous demonstration of how to strike a balance between formal and casual. The simple and spacious sectional is super cozy, yet the artful pendant light and the green marble coffee table dress things up. Plus, the stark white walls add a contemporary element we're loving.
If you're into neutral color palettes, you may want to consider adding a subtle moment of color by way of a coffee table or accent chair. In this bright and airy living room, the throw pillows and the green marble table add jewel-toned elegance throughout the whole room.
Remember: Contrast Is Good
These green marble side tables add a sense of depth to an otherwise white room. If you want to keep it subtle, opt for green marble for a little pop of personality.
Add a Pop of Color
This cool New York bathroom offers a sophisticated and minimalist twist on the classic all-white bathroom courtesy of a petite box-shaped green marble sink. The muted gold pipe and hardware add a glamorous element that we're coveting.
A unique backsplash in a beautiful blue-green marble tile has us absolutely swooning. We love the way Studio DB opted for shaped tiles and arranged them in an unexpected pattern. Not to mention, it pairs perfectly with the gray marble countertops and matte navy cabinets.
