For a while now, marble has been in the limelight, cladding kitchens, bathrooms and coffee tables with its polished feel and glamorous allure. It appears though, that there is a new, more natural feeling stone taking over the minds of interior designers in the know. With its organic texture and tonal patterns, travertine is the new stone to watch.

Traditionally found in the Mediterranean, travertine is a type of limestone deposited by hot mineral springs. It's this proximity to the hot springs that causes water erosion on the stone, creating travertine’s signature porous texture, a fundamental part of its evident charm.

How to Style with Travertine

From Mid-century modern homes to minimalist penthouses, travertine complements a remarkable number of interior design styles. So, whilst wrapping a kitchen from floor to ceiling in this timeless stone may (unfortunately) not suit your home, adding a touch in the form of a travertine bowl or sculpture is an option that will never look compromised.

Best suited to a neutral palette, just look at the array of hues in each piece of travertine to draw inspiration for your colour scheme. Balance out the hard feel of stone with soft bouclé for some enviable contrast. This look is all about the texture so pair back your look and allow the materials to do all the talking.

How to Care for Travertine

Travertine’s naturally porous texture, though part of its appeal, requires a slightly more nuanced approach to cleaning and care. Follow these simple guidelines to keep your stone looking covetable for years to come.

  • Remove any spills promptly with a damp cloth to avoid staining and preempt spills by keeping a few stylish coasters on hand.
  • If you don’t want to dull your surfaces, steer clear of any cleaning products that include bleach or citrus.
  • Dust your table with a microfibre cloth to avoid any buildup in the stone’s uneven surface. 
  • This is not the time for a DIY cleaning solution—vinegar will erode the stone's surface and result in a similarly dull look.
