When Fashion & Interiors Collide ~ Terrazzo

Terrazzo has been on a slow boil in the interiors world for the past year or two, slowly slipping in where marble once was before.

I do love it when the interiors and fashion world blend together and this terrazzo thing is a great example.

Terrazzo is a marble and cement composite which was created in the 16th century as a way to reuse marble offcuts, waste not want not. Today it can be a mix of virtually any kind of material, to create a bespoke look.

To me to feels timeless, a bit Art Deco. Memories of swimming baths and shop floors from my childhood. It looks so tactile and feels much warmer than a traditional marble

It’s had revivals in the 1930s and the 1970s, so much like the way of these things coming around every 30-40 years, its in vogue again. I’ve spotted some ways to buy into this trend though without redoing your whole bathroom (unless you want to!)

I think the terrazzo feels just right for Spring too, it’s light, fresh and cheerful. It manages to be delicate and bold at the same time.

  3. It’s such a lovely material – I wasn’t sure when I saw it popping up here and there in the interior worlds at first but when I saw some of the work of Play Associates and Dzek, I was a convert! It’s very playful and I love the mix of textures and colours. I love the fashion elements as well – 4 and 5 are my favourites 🙂 Might need to do a bit of shopping now 😉 xx

  4. I’m still not sure how I feel about this. I’m not won over by it in fashion I have to say. It’s a bit too crazy for me to wear. I like it in small doses in interiors so some accessories or maybe a feature wall. The lamps and the ferm living wallpaper are my favourites.
