Metrie Masters on: Marble & Moulding

December 6, 2018
by The Finished Space

We’re dreaming of a white Christmas, but even if a winter wonderland isn’t in your forecast, you can bask in these marble and moulding combinations by our Metrie Masters to get your fill. The stone and finishing match-up is a classic combination, and these three rooms will inspire you to try it in your next project.

Marble and moulding can be incorporated into a variety of rooms and design styles and still feel perfectly complementary. These living room, bathroom, and kitchen projects wowed us in the 2017 Builder & Designer Challenge and deserve an encore this month. Enjoy!

Hillside Developments

Hillside Developments wowed us with their use of moulding and marble

We can just imagine grand holiday parties in this room. The upscale space features plenty of seating, a heater in the wide exit to the outdoor space, and a clean white-on-white palette.

To keep the white palette from being overwhelming, it’s accented with blues, browns, and a patterned rug and mantel. But it’s the coffered ceiling that really turns this living room into a great room!

This traditional meets contemporary living room is an entertainer’s dream—skillfully mixing three different marbles to create a striking effect, and not to mention the perfect joining of the indoor and outdoor spaces.

The strong black and white marble accenting the fireplace and white marble tile on the floor play perfectly against the beautiful frame created by panel mould, casing, chair rail, crown moulding, and baseboard all in a crisp white paint.

Forest Hills Homes

Forest Hills Homes married marble and moulding in this bathroom design

We’re absolutely in love with this master suite, which uses trim and moulding to create a quiet sophistication throughout the space.

Forest Hills Homes was clearly inspired by older homes, where interior finishings are more bold and elegant, using larger profiles. That same sophistication is carried in through to the bathroom, where a freestanding tub and classic vanities are installed.  

Large marble floor tiles with plenty of variation are installed in this bright bathroom in a herringbone pattern for an unexpected twist. The contemporary marble paired with the larger casing and baseboard create a polished look that is both casual and attainable.  

June Eight Studio

June Eight Studio created a spectacular kitchen equipped with a marble waterfall island

Annette, of June Eight Studio, had a deep understanding of her busy, urban clients and was inspired to create this contemporary kitchen that fits their needs to a T.

A waterfall marble island offers plenty of space for eating, meal prep, and even homework, while black lower cabinets can mask dirty handprints.

White uppers, to satisfy the two-toned cabinet trend, are tastefully topped with crown moulding that defies traditional profiles. It’s clear that the personality of this space comes from the combination of bold marble and sleek crown moulding to create an overall cool and contemporary feeling.


From kitchens to bathrooms, our Metrie Masters have proven that marble and moulding are an interior design dynamic duo. Whether your next project is contemporary, traditional, or something in between, marrying marble with moulding will instantly elevate the space. Hopefully you’re inspired to try out these looks in any part of a home.
