Smooth as silk and cool to the touch– opulent yet rustic all at once.  Does anything scream luxe living more than marble?  I’d never realized my love for the natural stone until I visited my first slab yard.  Marble in the kitchen quickly became one of our must-haves as we planned a kitchen renovation in our new home.  Carrara, calcutta…a splash of it here and there or a full blown wall to wall treatment.  Didn’t make a drastic difference as long as it was there!

But kitchens shouldn’t have all the fun!  Marble walls, stairways, and floors are ridiculously chic additions to any modern home…

Can you even believe that last picture?  I’ve never seen anything like it….gold AND marble floors?  Out. Of. This. World. GLAM!

If you are dying to get this look in your own home but don’t quite have it in the budget, consider a DIY marble tile install in a kitchen or bathroom.  HGTV fills you in on the process (and it actually doesn’t sound as intimidating as expected!).  Cristina of Remodelando Casa makes this project seem like a breeze — let her inspire you! And how does Bob Vila know how to do everything?  Laying down a marble tile floor…just another day for him (but a lucky DIY day for you!).

Not ready or willing to make this commitment just yet?  We totally hear you.  Next week, we’ll share with you our favorite marble home decor finds (read: mobile, interchangeable, less expensive than a new floor, and commitment-free)!  Look out for our ten best marble home accessory picks on in next week’s Tuesday Ten post!
