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.
1- Vitra Dress this website is in New Zealand but I just had to include it here.

I love the print! It looks so cool! Five and eleven are my fav!
Thanks for stopping by Kaelyn! Hope your weekend was fun x
Ah this print is so cool. I also love it when fashion and interior collide. I absolutely adore the colour palette of number 3!
I totally hadn’t noticed this Trend at all, but I can’t deny I adore the giant version of it in the top image. So beautiful ! It’s got all the modern retro vibes I love
Ah thanks lovely- could be one for your kitchen?
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
I could totally picture a version with flecks of gold and black in your home!
Ooh, love this. Those Marmoreal tiles at the end are beauty!x
Tell me about it!! Hubba hubba!
Literally rethinking all my home design now!!!! I love the giant version!
Love how the print is so cool, and original.
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.
Great choices Stacey!
