There's no home that masters elegant and sophisticated interiors as much as the home of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. The California family home is a delightful celebration of luxe materials, warm colors, and statement furniture, and that's no less true for its marble kitchen ideas.

Designed by acclaimed interior designer Jake Arnold, the kitchen is rich with contrasting materials, with the standout marble taking pride of place and running throughout the open room. 

From the countertops to the kitchen shelving ideas, the marble adorns the space and creates a feeling of instant luxury. The particular type of marble featured in Chrissy and John's home is calacatta macchia vecchia marble: a rich variation that features intricate veining with golden tones running throughout.

'The marble slab backsplash is the perfect focal point in this modern earthy kitchen,' explains interior designer Jessica Bagwell.

'The slab not only acts as the countertop and backsplash but as a functional ledge for all your kitchen decor. The organic and warm tones of the marble complement the curved banquet and brass fixtures brilliantly,' Bagwell goes on to explain.

Whilst decorating with marble is most commonly admired for its appealing aesthetic, there are also a range of practical reasons to choose this stone for your modern kitchen ideas.

Marble is a highly durable material, meaning it will withstand daily wear and tear for years to come, as well as being heat resistant which makes it a suitable choice for the kitchen.

But it's not just the use of marble we're admiring in the celebrity family kitchen; the furniture pieces in the room are also serving us with design inspiration. Channeling the curved kitchen trend, the seating area shown above works well to offset the solid and block-like nature of the marble slabs.

The white-colored upholstered bench, which looks to be a bouclé-like fabric, adds an element of softness to the room and aids the space in feeling cozy and inviting, whilst the round table is crafted from a cooler-toned stone, which provides contrast against the room's warm hues.
