5 Photos That Prove Gold and Marble Is A Match Made In Heaven

This color combo is the definition of glitz and glamour!

Marble paired with metallics, especially gold, are all the rage right now—and for good reason. Not only are these two design mainstays classic and timeless, they also increase the luxe appeal of your home. Luckily, there are easy ways to adorn your haven with touches of gilt and gold, check them out below: 

If you aren't sure about trying out the look on a large scale, you can always start small and build from there. Test the waters by getting a basic piece (like a side table) and pair it with knickknacks in the same color family for a classy vignette. Keep the rest of the furniture neutral to make your display stand out. 

If there is only a room at home that you would deck out in this power combo, make sure it is the bathroom as it is where we get ready in the morning and where we unwind at the end of the day. Switch out stark white basics for marble pieces and replace steel knobs with gold ones to give it a luxurious feel. 

While a marble countertop can blend well with a monochromatic scheme, it can also fall short and make a room look flat. Keep your space lively by adding a pop of metallic hue through paint-dipped stools. 

What's better than combining marble and gold? Having them both in the form of wallpaper! Consider transforming an empty panel at home into an accent wall and complementing it with white accessories for a streamlined look.

If installing wallpaper is too drastic for your taste and you want a more subtle way of incorporating this trend into your home, you can still do it through smaller items such as pillows and wall decals.
