Since spending the last few months crafting, I've been feeling like I'm out of the design game. I've spent so much time Pinning and looking for fun projects that I can take on myself that I haven't spent the time to see what's been going on in the bigger design world outside my home.
That being said, I've now assigned myself "homework" - catching up on reading my design magazines to see what I've been missing. It's quite a daunting task when there's a stack of magazines a mile high and two little girls constantly pulling at my attention. Either I have the two neediest children in the world, or they're just normal 1 and 3 year old's - but by the end of the day all I want to do lately is lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling. They're taking it all out of me! Gotta dread when a 3 year old will no longer nap and a 1 year old is trying to drop her second nap by napping only 45 minutes a day, yikes!
But as I carve out some time to myself - thank you, Sesame Street - I've been finding an endless source of marble and marble-patterned decorative items. From fabric, to lighting, to the typical furniture, marble is making a HUGE splash right now.
When I think of marble I always remember my grandmother. She loved all things fabulous and marble was one of them. She was such a stylish woman, that it may be misleading when I say marble reminds me of her - its actually a really good thing for marble!
But as I look around my home there is a remarkable lack of marble. I guess I'll have to stock up on some of the great products I've found, or undertake the two DIY projects I had to throw in (can't get crafting out of my system no matter how hard I try):
Do you have marble in your home? I'd love to hear how you're taking on this trend!
