Gorgeous Trend Alert: Arabescato Marble

If you’re reading this post and you’re like “what the heck is Arbescato marble?” I can assure you that you’ve seen it. Probably on Instagram, but perhaps on Pinterest or in a magazine. Here’s a look:

Yep, you knew the one! It’s a gorgeous white marble with swirly, deep gray and black veining. It’s a huge backsplash trend in both kitchens and bathrooms, as well as for showers, sinks, and countertops, and I’m into it.

It’s sort of like the Goldilocks of marbles. It’s not quite as bold or contemporary as panda marble, not quite as colorful as Viola marble, and not quite as subtle as Cararra. Not too crazy, not too simple.

When we renovated our house, I was thisclose to choosing an Arabescato marble sink, but I went with a Cararra because I thought it would be more timeless. I still love the sink we chose, but when we redo the primary bathroom, I’d love to go with Arabescato if it’s in the budget.

If you’re pondering a bathroom or kitchen remodel, here’s a visual essay of all of the reasons you should consider this lovely, just-right marble.

I love how the designers at Grisoro Studio paired an arabescato marble with a gold veining streak with a brass sink. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a chicer wet bar.

The Arabescato marble backsplash is one of the more popular uses this year, and for good reason. It adds so much texture and detail to space in our homes that are usually more linear and utilitarian.

Here’s another version of the marble being used as a backsplash, this time with a small display ledge on the top.

If the backsplash-countertop combo is too much pattern, you can also take a cue from @FoodStories and pair an Arabesacto countertop with a simple subway tile backsplash.

I love that this sink is actually made form Arabescato. We have an all-marble sink and it’s actually held up very well over the two years we’ve had it! Another benefit to Arabescato is that the multicolored veining would be a great stain hider.

If you’re looking for an image library of gorgeous uses of Arabescato, check out @Dom.W.Parku on Instagram. She’s used the material throughout her house (like as a backsplash above) and it’s stunning!

Another shot of the home of @Dom.W.Parku, who used Arabescato as a floor tile, tub surround and in the shower.

Here’s another way to use it in a bathroom, this time as a tub surround.

Of course, the kitchen and bathroom aren’t the only spots to use Arabescato. It’s gorgeous as a fireplace surround, like in this space by designer Monica Fried in Scarsdale, NY.

Love this look but aren’t in the place to accomodate it in a home renovation? Same. Instead, I’ve found a whole bunch of gorgeous accent pieces in Arabescato to get the look in smaller doses.
