Marble bathrooms are as exquisite as it gets. The exotic and exclusive material is the most coveted option when it comes to choosing stones for more refined bathrooms. The myriad of Marble options can go from heavily veined and exotic ones to more simple ones, but the exotic ones capture still more attention and no wonder. The more rare the marble the more expensive it is. Usually this type stone needs to be imported from places such as Italy, France, Turkey and other countries where the rock is naturally produced. Since heavily veined marble can be very pronounced and make such a statement, usually white marble is preferred so as to keep the effect more subtle and harmonious. Bathroom is a room we use daily. Of course nothing beats the the real deal, but not everybody can afford real marble and one way to accomplish an elegant result for your bathroom is mixing the high and low. In our bathroom in New Jersey I did just that. I used calacata gold marble in a mosaic patter for the floor and the shower I opted for porcelain that simulate marble.
Pierre Yovanovitch used a very popular type of marble in France. Carrara Arasbescatto creates one of the most striking backdrops for any type of bathroom from traditional to modern.

Maddux Creative This bathroom probably broke the internet when it first started circulating among bloggers and pinterest. The Marble I believe is Paonazzo marble. White marble looks its best when combined with brass as I posted here.
