Carrara marble makes for a beautiful addition to any home. With blue-gray veining, this type of fine Italian marble is most often used in kitchen countertops, stand-alone bar islands, bathroom countertops, or as flooring.
Using Colors To Set Room Tones
Carrara marble is as versatile as it is beautiful. It can be paired with several colors to achieve the desired tone or room setting.
- Creating A Relaxation Area With An Ethereal Tone: Carrara marble is often used to set an ethereal room tone by pairing it’s cool blue undertones with white walls. To achieve a slightly more modern, yet still delicate tone, Carrara can be paired with light gray walls that feature a crisp white trim. This combination can also add depth to smaller rooms and create an additional layer of architectural complexity.
- Harmony Can Be Found In Creams And Peaches: Creating a harmonious tone is made easy when you pair Carrara marble with cream or peach colors. The sheen of the marble will complement the pale wall color, while strategically placed hanging glass lights will create a dynamic interplay of shadow, textures, and light.
- Create Dynamic Contrasts Between Light And Dark: Speaking of light and dark, espresso furniture and crystal light accents can be used to enhance the crisp whiteness of Carrara. A similarly dynamic effect can be achieved by painting walls a warm gray with red undertones, which will complement the red found in espresso furniture, and the blue hues in the marble.
