Marble patterns and the art of marbleizing papers have seen a resurgence in recent months. Elle Decor recently proclaimed that marbleized products are "back", so I wonder: are you introducing this trend into your home through fabrics or other decorative pieces?

This weekend, I found these cotton marbled printed fabrics from Joann Fabrics for $6.99 a yard and thought these prints could easily pass for a much-more-expensive fabric used for Dransfield & Ross napkins.
(sorry for the crappy phone picture)
I brought the green marbled fabric home with me and, for all of $14, intended to make runner for my kitchen table. Full project details to follow.

Also, these two rolls of grass green marbleized paper have been awaiting a project for months now and I just got around to deciding on their use: chic drawer liners for my green sideboard.
($9 at Dick Blick)
I'll be sure to share the drawer lining project posthaste.

Still interested in more marbleizing?

Do you have any elements of this trend currently on display in your home?
Any marbleized projects you've recently completed?
If so, do tell!


  1. Great finds, Ashley! It seems that marble is everywhere this morning - saw it on LGN and Kathy's blog. I would like to use some of the paper on top of a side table!!

  2. Those marble napkins are so pretty! Can't wait to see your draw liners.

  3. Ashley, I love this post! I just bought 1980's black candlestick lamp with its original marble papered shade. I am in love with it. Thanks for this post - gotta post about it soon.

  4. Love the marbled look. So chic. And yes, I did find a vintage marbled lamp. Not sure if I can part with it or not. Still thinking on it.

  5. I have a bunch of marble paper I need to use...hmmm now to get crafty :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
