Marble Marvel

Scalpellino House by Biasol

Some trends are more enduring than others - our penchant for marble and stone finishes is a good example. It is perhaps the primal beauty of the rock patterns, or the sense of longevity and connection to mother Earth, that provokes such fascination. This handsome house in Melbourne, designed by the architects and designers at Biasol, is a masterclass in the application of stone finishes.

As the new home of a family with generations of stonemasonry expertise, it is fitting that stone forms the focal point in every room. Cosmic gold granite, with its rich veins of gold, is a dramatic choice for the waterfall counter of the kitchen island as well as the low sideboards in the dining and living areas. The washrooms celebrate the glory of marble - used on the floors, walls and vanities to create an enveloping sense of opulence: cool grey Elba for the bathrooms and an exuberant grey and white Concordia for the powder room.

Stone and marble also feature extensively elsewhere, from wall tiles in the entrance and staircase areas to the dining table, occasional tables and decorative accessories. These sit in contrast against furniture with soft, rounded shapes, which cleverly highlight the presence of the stone. The result is a serene space which oozes elegance and sophistication, a refined showcase of how to incorporate stone finishes into domestic interiors.
