If Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent are obsessed with something, the rest of us are legally obligated to also be obsessed with that something. Sorry. It’s just the way the world works. But most will have no problem being utterly enthralled with the stunning marble Berkus and Brent have been having a heyday with for months—years, even. It’s called Prunella marble, and it makes any space look absolutely lavish.

Prunella marble is a richly patterned marble with deep veins of eggplant, gray, and burgundy. The drastic contrast of dark and light, with the punch of purple, screams luxury and adds a timeless look to any decor scheme.

Berkus and Brent just recently put Prunella marble in client’s Los Angeles kitchen, pairing it with a 17th-century limestone replace hearth and more modern Jean Royère-style stools.

“We’ve been obsessed with old kitchens in Portugal and the way they straddle different eras,” Brent told Architectural Digest, with Berkus adding, “The family is young, and they gravitate to modern, so we didn’t want the kitchen to feel too heavy-handed.”

Berkus recently posted a throwback to their Los Angeles home, in which they splattered Prunella marble around the entire room. “This Prunella marble, need I say more!” Berkus captioned the pic—and no, he definitely doesn’t.

Using the leftover Prunella marble from their shower reno, Berkus and Brent transformed the space around their Restoration Hardware vanities into something that looks like it belongs in a Newport, Rhode Island mansion.

But Berkus and Brent have been in love with Prunella marble for years. They adhered it to an entire wall in their New York apartment years before bringing Prunella into their L.A. home.

So, if you’re looking to add some dramatic flair to your next home reno project, take it from Nate and Jeremiah—Prunella marble is the way to go.
