I Love Gooooooold

Nothing quite says “refinement” more than gold, the hard part is finding what to match it with and not lose the luxurious look. Thankfully, panda marble looks absolutely amazing when paired with anything gold. Something about the crisp white background contrasting with those broad waves of black stripes really amplifies the look that gold provides. Yet somehow, it never overpowers the gold, only enhances.

Wall To Wall Class

Why stop at using this for just countertops? While not often seen, panda marble makes for one nice looking wall. The wavy black lines makes for a super interesting backdrop for any piece of furniture. However, I wouldn’t use it for more than two walls max, anything more would be a little excessive.

Colors Are Lame Anyways

Lack of color just means you need to get creative with your designs. Panda marble keeps things simple, without it getting stale. It looks great in a black and white setting, not standing out, but definitely not blending in to the surroundings. Clean but random contrasting waves make it visually appealing, while not overpowering the rest of the room.

Not Just For Minimalists

I know it seems like this is a “minimalists only” type of material, but trust me, it’s not. Despite working well with metals and other marbles, panda marble still looks amazing when paired with wood. Break up the varying shades of brown with a shock of white and black every once in a while. While it isn’t overpowering, it should be used pretty sparingly in this case.

Let That Sink In

At a loss of what material to use for your bathroom? Panda marble is the way to go when it comes to classing up a bathroom. The fact that it’s such a smooth surface makes it easy to clean and maintain. Bathroom staples like showers, mirrors, and sinks all pair up perfectly with this, making decorating a cinch.

Pretty In Pastel

Pastels aren’t the first thing you think of when you hear “monochrome”, but it is now. Pastel pinks, blues, and greens go together with panda marble shockingly well. Combining the two makes any room surreal in the best possible way. It almost looks like something out of a dream, and you won’t want to look away.
