My daughter has been studying minerals at school and it made me think of some of my favorites. Gold, diamonds and turquoise are at the top of my list. However, I’m really liking the use of malachite for decorative purposes. It’s a hot interior design trend that I’m seeing more and more. The pattern even graced the runway at designer, Monique Lhuillier’s show last week at New York’s Fashion Week.
Malachite is a copper hydroxyl carbonate that crystalizes to create the rich green color. This beautiful marbled green mineral isn’t new to home decor either. Typically adorning high-end decorative pieces, malachite has been used for centuries. For fun, I pulled together a round-up of a few of my favorite items using malachite (or it’s beautiful marbled green pattern).
Happy Decorating & Happy Friday,
