Exceedingly Soft








I have an exceedingly soft spot for carrera marble, so when I saw this house I was won over instantly. Did you see that kitchen bench, I mean, insanely stunning.

And then to throw the same cavalier use of this decorating nirvana to the wind, the bath tub!

Whilst travelling in Italy a few years ago by train we saw hundreds, maybe thousands of slabs of white Carrara marble in yards by the train line. The nearby mountains reflected white so I am pretty sure they were where the marble was coming from. Next stop was Carrara station. Very surreal.

But what I really love is the smoothness of the marble against those lovely rustic old floors. Gorgeous!

So do I! I love marble, the Ancient Greeks knew what they were doing. There is a fabulous marble lobby in one of the office buildings here done in the 70's. It is stunning. I hope that they dont 'renovate' it
