Marbleized Paper


When we went to Italy for three weeks last summer, I enjoyed leafing through all the marbleized papers in the (tourist trap) shops in Venice and Florence. The organic and natural elements of these papers would be a welcome addition to almost any room.

The easiest way to incorporate the paper into your home is to pop a sheet into a frame. I love this orange and turquoise paper available for free download at Vintage Printables.

Nick Olsen glued marbleized paper to his IKEA coffee tables with rubber cement.

Christopher Spitzmiller lined his bookshelves with marbleized paper.

Surface View is a British company that sells ready-made and custom wall murals. I especially love these marbleized paper versions.

This mural is 75″x94″! Wouldn’t this be amazing in an entry or a dining room? I love the colors.

I’m dying to make my own papers for a framing project or for gift wrap using these instructions from Martha. Watch the step by step process here, on Martha’s show.

If you’re in the market for ready-made marbleized paper, Kate’s Paperie and Paper Mojo both have decent offerings.
