Breaking away from the monochrome stone mould, we explore nine of our favourite examples of coloured stone in the home.
With its unique veining and striking appearance, coloured stone is a statement choice in the home. Suitable for benchtops, floor and wall applications, natural stone offers resilient heat resistant properties and an elegance that can’t be matched.
A force of nature and a statement made in stone, peruse these nine stone hues that each share a contemporary, opulent edge.
We kick off our list with Calacatta Viola, from premium tile and stone retailer Signorino, who pride themselves on sourcing exotic stones from around the world in an abundance of colours. Calacatta Viola has a dramatic rippled effect within the stone with vivid burgundy veining.
Softer in colouring, CDK Stone’sElegant Grey has white and gold veins on a darker surface. Elegant Grey is honed and polished, making a sophisticated addition to any kitchen or bathroom.
Fior Di Pesco
Sydney stone company Marable offers natural and engineered stone slabs, specialising in kitchen benchtops, feature walls and fireplaces. Quarried in Italy, Fior di Pesco features a lilac-grey base with prominent veining throughout, incorporating hints of white and salmon.
The Arabescato Corchia marble from Victoria Stone gallery is a well-known white and grey marble from Carrara, Italy. It is characterised by its contrast of white balling and deeper grey background. This natural stone is heavily polished and can be used for benchtops and flooring.
Another favourite from Victoria Stone Gallery is the New York marble, defined by its pearly base and purple ink-like veining. Due to its translucent background, light can illuminate from the back of the stone, bringing some of the city’s glamour into your bathroom or kitchen.
Quarried in Brazil, Signorino’sInvisible Blue is a statement slab, with its intense gold and grey-blue marbling. As part of the retailer’s ‘Grey Stones’ collection, Invisible Blue is suitable for typical internal application along with pool tiling, fountains and mosaics.
The Damasca stone by Victoria Stone Gallery is sourced from Greece. It’s known for its blue and purple tones and small spider web-like veins. The dark grey marble can be used for fireplace hearths, vanities and wall tiles, and offers a more subtle veined finish.
Another Greek stone is Signorino’s Verias Green, which showcases a deep green background with shades of lighter green throughout. Dramatic and moody, the deep forest green is balanced with the white and grey accents, and is suitable for use on external walls.
We conclude our edit with Marable’sNero Marquina, recognised by its black backdrop and delicate white veining. A statement in its own right, the Spanish marble remains a timeless option for any room or surface.
