Marbleized Everything!

Growing up in Dallas in the 1980s, marbleizing was a big trend in girls' fashion. My mom and her friends perfected the technique - once reserved primarily for paper products - and suddenly Highland Park daughters were decked head-to-toe in marbleized gear, right down to our giant hair bows and plastic shorts.

The technique is making ripples again - this time a little more tastefully -  in the home design world. This pretty wallpaper is "Pheasant" by Twigs



"Pheasant" is available in different colorways. I love the peachy shade used in this powder bath. A little bit can go a long way - look how the designer used the blue version to back bookcases.

Fabric houses are jumping on the trend, too. There are several different marbleized prints out right now. I would use one to make bright, fun pillows! These are from Old World Weavers, Highland Court and Kravet. 

No one does lamps quite like Bunny Williams. Her Scarlet Lamp is a subtle way to experiment with the trend.

Or for less investment, dress your table in these fun marbleized napkins.

The design world is holding its breath for the next line of marbleized wallpaper from F. Schumacher, created by designer-to-the-stars Martyn Lawrence Bullard. His new collection debuts in February. Click here to see a sneak peek inside the January issue of Architectural Digest...
