Brit Decor: Get the marble look / 5 of the best marble wallpapers











These days you don't have to thumb through many pages of interiors-related magazines before stumbling across a magnificent marble-clad home, in fact this classic material looks just as in-vogue in homes today, as it did in ancient Greek temples and palaces. The images I've selected today show just why this coveted material is so timeless.

One thing that the marble of 2016 still has in common with earlier applications, is it's pristine status as a luxury material, and of course with the luxe-look comes the inevitable high-end price tag. But don't despair, if your budget doesn't currently stretch to the real deal, there are plenty of other ways to introduce the 'look' to your home, including, porcelain tiles, adhesive papers, fabrics and wallpapers.

Today I'm honing in on marble-effect wallpapers as a less expensive means of delivering a marble pattern, culminating with my top 5 picks from the high street in the final image 'below'. Do you have a favourite?
