It's easy to create a beautiful bathroom, but building a bathroom that will withstand the test of time no matter what is a bigger challenge. Luckily, Megan Fox's space provides an easy blueprint.

The actress's bathroom idea is awash in white marble with light gray veins. Marble tiles line the walls, the floors, and the ceilings. Cream paint provides a slight contrast. Gold hardware and a glass shower door add a subtle reflective accent.

When put together, this look perfectly embodies the quiet luxury interior design trend that has been huge so far in 2024. This trend celebrates a soft, neutral color palette, high-quality materials, and understated opulence. Experts say that one material is largely responsible for this effect: marble.

'Marble has long been revered for its luxurious and timeless appeal in interior design, especially in bathrooms where it can transform the space into an elegant spa-like sanctuary,' says Nina Lichtenstein, Westchester-based interior designer. It makes sense that this stone lends itself to a quiet luxury scheme.

She continues, 'Marble comes across as opulent and sophisticated. Its natural beauty, characterized by intricate veining and a smooth surface, lends a feeling of luxury, refinement, and tranquility. Whether used for countertops, flooring, or accent walls, marble adds wow factor to bathrooms.'

Nina believes that home design should capture a family’s unique spirit by how it serves the family's daily needs while nourishing the soul. She has been celebrated for designing, renovating, and building elegant living spaces. 

If Megan Fox's bathroom has inspired you to install the stealth wealth look in your own space, it's important to consider how to style the rest of the quiet luxury bathroom. Lichtenstein tells Homes & Gardens: 'By styling around marble with a focus on simplicity, elegance, and natural elements, you can enhance the beauty of this timeless material and transform your bathroom into a captivating retreat.'

Lichtenstein advises adopters of the marble bathroom look to, 'Prioritize a neutral color palette to allow the marble to be the focal point. Soft shades like white, beige, or light gray complement marble's natural tones and create a serene ambiance.' 

As for choosing hardware she adds, 'Incorporate subtle accents that enhance the luxurious feel of marble. Choose polished chrome or brushed nickel fixtures for a modern touch, or opt for gold or brass accents for a more classic look.'

If you're not ready to redo your entire bathroom, you can still harness the luxury and tranquility this material embodies by placing marble and marble-inspired touches around your home. The look needn't be limited to one room.

Whether it's in Megan Fox's bathroom, on the backsplash of your kitchen, or comprises the mantelpiece in your living room, marble always gives a room an opulent, overwhelmingly stylish feel.
