Learn more about Terrazzo wallpapers:
Terrazzo has made a significant resurgence in interior design in recent years. The composite material, which originated in Italy, was created by combining marble, quartz, granite, and other appropriate stones before polishing them to a smooth surface.
Modern terrazzo has evolved slightly from its forefather. Aside from flooring, the new terrazzo design has been seen almost everywhere — from counters to fabrics, and even on walls. The speckled design comes in a rainbow of colors, and the chips range from microscopic to larger and chunkier to provide a striking aesthetic impact.

A brief history of terrazzo pattern
Terrazzo (Italian for "Terrace") was developed approximately 500 years ago in Venice. Workers in Venetia were frequently left with wasted marble fragments, which they would encase in clay and ground flat. For their living quarters, they were utilized as a low-cost substitute for marble.
Terrazzo was first used in the United States in the late 1700s. Because the United States has a lot of marbles, the usage spread swiftly.
In the 1970s, thin-set, or epoxy-based, terrazzo was introduced. Terrazzo soon gained popularity due to its broader range of colors, thickness, ease of installation, and resistance to cracking. Terrazzo immediately became an interior design trend, allowing it to be utilized not only as a material but also as a pattern on a variety of other décor objects.

Find a balance
Like any other design, it is possible to overuse terrazzo — keep in mind that too much of this pattern might make your room appear uninteresting and repetitive.

Use terrazzo to bring in a texture
While terrazzo wallpaper may be used to enhance other textural components, it also works great to bring the main visual texture to areas that lack it, such as a modern kitchen with flat-front cabinets and plain walls.

You may use the terrazzo wallpaper to attract attention to your area by choosing monochromatic bright or dark. Opt for a darker aesthetic if you want to give a new degree of texture to your decor. For instance, pair our Marble Pieces or Gray Stones terrazzo wallpapers with light, classy furniture to achieve the most effective contrast.
