Marble Paper as Wallpaper

Inspiration

I’m working on a powder room project that could use a little punch. I love this bathroom published in Lonny. The walls were papered with marbled gift wrap (the same paper I used here). Isn’t this space gorgeous? I love that the direction of the swirls is random – there’s so much movement here!

Here are a few more of my favorite marbled paper walls. It’s a great way to add a little excitement to a wall or a nook:

And I think it’s still so pretty for smaller applications. I really love marbled paper on the back of a bookshelf or secretary especially.

If you’re in the market for some pretty paper for a project, here are a few of my favorites available online right now, ranging from $3-8 per sheet. I’m thinking one of these could be a winner for my powder bath project.

PS West Elm makes a marble print wallpaper now!

PPS If you’re feeling adventurous, make your own marbled papers! I think it would be pretty to marbleize a few mats for a picture frame series.

  1. Wow, I love this! I might need to place a dickblick order! I'm into planters… I might need to marble some. Probably best to use impermeable ones for this?

  2. I tried marbling the other day after reading your post about the marbled light switch :)!! Super fun!! For large paper like the ones above would you use paint instead? If so what would you recommend? The lamp shade is looking good for my next try!

  3. Hi guys!

    I'm planning on just using wallpaper paste for walls and mod podge works great for the smaller applications (at least it did for my trash bin project I linked to)! So easy!

  4. This is EXACTLY what I've been planning to do in my entryway for the past month, but haven't gotten around to. I even googled it to see if it had been done, but didn't come up with anything helpful (used totally different search terms apparently). My favorite source is papermojo.com. Mine was going to be a lot more subtle, but seeing some of these really make me want to place a new order…

  6. Hi, Jenny!
    That bathroom in the top pic is my BFF Nicki Clendening's of scoutdesignsnyc.com. It's even more gorgeous in person as is everything she touches!

  7. I am so glad I discovered your blog! I already did the Sputnik Maskros DIY, and it looks amazing. Since we are renting I can't marble the entire bathroom (even though I really really want to), but I framed a 30" x 40" marble print over the mantle piece. I. LOVE. IT. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
