When planning our trip to Italy last year, topping my "things to do list" was shopping. Specifically paper shopping, Florentine Marbled Paper shopping. While I already (admittedly) have more paper than any one woman should have, I couldn't help but be tempted by all of the Florentine delights that lay ahead. So I carefully plotted the map with some of Florence's best known paper purveyors.
Not only is is beautiful, but it seems to have had a recent revival. I am seeing marbled papers, fabrics and products everywhere! Martha Stewart has created a collection of marble ideas for your wedding, Design*Sponge did a lovely history. Even Etsy jumped in with an easy tutorial for a marbled scarf. To purchase, Paper Mojo has a great selection. Or make it one more excuse to head over to Firenze. Here is a round up of my recent favorite marble finds.
For a gorgeous roundup of styles take a look at the collection put together by BiblioOdyssey here. And one more example of marble (not paper, but still fab) from our trip below.
