Malachite is a strikingly beautiful natural mineral that is emerald green in color with circular bands of dark green, light green, black and gold.  It is valued for its rich color and pattern.  In the home, the malachite pattern is used in wall coverings, fabrics and accessories.  Furniture and decorative accessories made of malachite are often glossed for a high sheen to show off its beautiful pattern and color.  Here are four ways to use malachite in your interior design.

  1.  Walls and Ceilings

Malachite patterned wallpaper is a beautiful way to bring this mineral into your home with style.  The multi-faceted green is an enhancement to bathrooms and bedrooms, giving these spaces a dramatic flair.  Highlight one wall for impact or cover the entire room for a rich look.  For a dramatic effect, cover the ceiling in malachite paper or paint treatment.

2.  Fabric/Upholstery

This rich pattern conveys well into fabric.  Cover chairs, use in window treatments or accent with pillows.  Mix with other bold hues or use in contrast to white.  Much like an animal print, the malachite print comes off as a neutral in most cases.  Use it where you want a punch of color or pattern.

3.  Furniture

True malachite or faux furniture brings this character-rich mineral to the forefront.  Accented with gilded hardware and accents, malachite furniture truly shines.  A modern coffee table accents a space nicely, or an intricately detailed side table can serve as a statement piece in a traditional setting.  A malachite desk would look great in an elegant  home office.
