It's no secret that gray marble in a bathroom is the perfect combination. The cool neutral shade creates a beautiful yet functional backdrop in the space and lends a touch of luxury to the washroom. In Selena Gomez's bathroom, the dynamic duo gets a new twist, and it's oh-so chic.

The Hands to Myself singer took to Instagram to share her favorite hand cream, but the gray and white marble bathroom tiles in her backdrop are the real stars of the show. They stand out against Selena's beige walls with intricate crown molding and shine under the light from her traditional hanging light.

Marble bathrooms are a classic and timeless way to add luxury to a home. Interior designer Soledad Alzaga states: 'Gray marble tiles in a bathroom bring a touch of sophistication and charm. Marble is timeless and blends into many decor styles while adding a touch of luxury.'

'Decorating with marble will impact any space, making it feel soft and elegant,' adds NYC-based interior designer Brianna Untener. 'The gray marble tiles Selena has are timeless since they have a neutral tone and subtle veining.'

The marbled traditional bathroom idea matches perfectly with the singer's additional decor. Soledad says, 'Selena Gomez's bathroom has a classic feel, with the use of crown molding and a hanging lantern pendant light that complements the marble subway tiles perfectly.'

 While there are several options for incorporating marble into a bathroom such as a slab of marble, marble bathroom floor tiles, or small wall tiles, experts swear by the subway bathroom tile look Selena has chosen. Brianna says, 'The large-scale subway tile makes the space less visually busy while making it look elevated. Classic marble tile is a great way to create lasting beauty without breaking the bank.'

'Subway tiles can be arranged in various patterns, offering flexibility in design while still maintaining a classic look,' adds Soledad, celebrating Selena's bathroom tile idea for its versatility.

Shop The Marble Edit

If opting for an entire wall of marble subway tiles seems like a bit much, you can still reap the benefits of marble in your bathroom with smaller, more affordable touches.

Selena Gomez's bathroom is an excellent example of why gray marble is one of the best bathroom materials of all time. The look stuns.
