Trend Alert: Navy, Marble & Brass in the Kitchen & Bath

White marble is pretty timeless, but it's definitely having a moment in the spotlight right now in kitchen and bathroom design. Pairing the beautiful natural stone with classic navy and brass makes for a modern classic look. The contrast between the light and dark colors and the pop of gold is simply beautiful.

Deeper pockets are usually involved when it comes to bright white marble (Maxwell explains how grayer Carrara is easier on the wallet). If you have the budget or you've been saving up, go for it! If you love the look but can't afford a complete overhaul, consider just splurging on a small bathroom vanity counter rather than the kitchen. Or if you want to freshen up the kitchen, splurge on the marble but then get your original cabinets painted instead of replacing them.
