Terrazzo is having a moment and I am beyond thrilled. To me the Midcentury mosaic wonder is basically jewelry for the home!
I first fell in love with the material as a young child in my Grandfather's home. It was a sprawling modern Asian style with Terrazzo floors. The metallics drew me in and I was surprised that there was a material that could make something as mundane as a floor sparkle.
What actually is Terrazzo? It's pieces of marble and granite suspended in concrete. Doesn't sound so sparkly, but the finished product can add as much color as a painting. It's a perfect way to artfully brighten up a room or give hint of shimmer to a high-traffic area, like a floor.
Here are a few examples...I even found a pair of Terrazzo Earrings!
