Generally the marble pattern just makes everything look more luxurious and clean. If you want to beautify your home with marble you don’t have to fork out a fortune for the real deal, there are plenty of easy and inexpensive DIY’s out there to make it at home! One of the best investments for me was marble contact foil – its like a sticker that you can stick to any surface and it instantly looks great!
Same with copper. As it has been quite the decor trend lately, a lot of companies are making overpriced copper articles but with a bit of spray paint you can easily transform an old piece into a trend article! Also, look for copper parts in your local DIY store, pipes etc make great DIY projects!
