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.
