• Hello lovelies! Happy Monday! Are you amped for the week? I’ve got my head down this week – i really want to get on top of some things in my life – from invoicing to a couple of deadlines and then sorting out life stuff that never seems to get sorted – things like medical aid claims drive me insane! On the house front, i will be taking some pix so i can share some before and afters with you – i want to show you what a huge difference our new blinds have made in our home and i’m so excited that I’ve finally decided that curtains are going to work in our bedroom. Now to find the fabric and have them made!

    Today’s post is all about Terrazzo – it’s a major surface trend at the moment and i really love the look. Terrazzo is what you call the finish that consists of marble or granite chips set in concrete. This is then polished like crazy to give it a really luxe look – and i love it.

    I’ve shown you our terrazzo scullery floor before – now take a look at how glam terrazzo can be…

    There are lots of types of terrazzo – you can get a grey base or a white base (which i prefer) and you can imagine the colour palette is vast and varied. I definitely prefer the pink tones to the darker ones…

    Terrazzo looks fabulous when used on a large surface like a kitchen floor but i really love it when it’s used as a detail…like with this staircase

    What i love about terrazzo is how it lets you really play with your colour palette…take a look at this textures, finishes and colour moodpboard – imagine how bananas you could go if you had this to play with?!

    I’d love to hear what you have to say about terrazzo..is it for you?
