Jan 2022

We have so many (wo)magnificent slabs that it’s almost impossible to decide where to start, so we’ve decided that, like Birthstones, we’re connecting our natural stone slabs to each month of the year. The only difference is, our slabs are an investment to be enjoyed all year round.

For January, like the Garnet Birthstone, our Rouge Renaissance marble is a fiery red stone that embodies passion. Incorporating red into your home conveys an energy that will both inspire creativity and revitalise your body, mind and spirit.

Let’s start with the material – Why Marble?

Marble is one of the most popular natural stones. It’s easy to understand why when you look at the beauty and opulence that marble can bring to a home. Its beauty has been long-cherished. Did you know that the Taj Mahal is made of marble? And it’s 390 years old. How’s that for an investment! Its hardness, its uniqueness, and its natural beauty are a few of the qualities that have made marble one of the materials preferred by interior designers and architects for decades. And don’t be put off by the maintenance of marble, it’s actually very easy, read our top tips on how to maintain your marble


And now the colour- how to work with red


It’s not easy to work with red, particularly in vivid, bold shades. Red is such a vibrant colour that a little will go a long way toward making your space feel lively. That’s why cladding is a terrific place to add a dash of red. 


Our Rouge Renaissance marble wall cladding brings luxury and sophistication to this bathroom and the white cabinets enhance the beautiful marble slab superbly.
