I've mentioned before that I've only recently began to understand the appeal of marble, but it looks like my timing was perfect because marble motifs are everywhere right now. Ya gotta get yourself some marble napkins!
Foxes broke out as a decor trend a few years ago and they haven't really left - they're foxy that way.
