No home is as elegant and sophisticated as Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s home. A California family home is a delightful celebration of luxurious materials, warm colors and statement cabinetry, and this is no less true of marble kitchen ideas.
The kitchen, designed by renowned interior designer Jake Arnold, is rich in contrasting materials, while standout marble takes pride of place and runs throughout the open room.
From countertops to kitchen shelves, marble enhances a space and instantly creates a luxurious feel. A particular type of marble featured in Chrissy and John’s home is Calacatta Macchia Vecchia marble: a rich variation with intricate veining and piercing golden tones.
“The marble slab backsplash is the perfect accent in this modern, earth-toned kitchen,” explains interior designer Jessica Bagwell.
“The slab not only serves as a countertop and backsplash, but also as a functional overhang for all your kitchen decor. The organic and warm tones of the marble complement the curved banquette table and brass light fixtures brilliantly,” continues Bagwell.

While marble finishes are most often admired for their attractive aesthetics, there are also a number of practical reasons to choose this stone for your modern kitchen ideas.
Marble is a very durable material, meaning it will withstand daily wear and tear for many years, and is also heat resistant, making it a suitable choice for the kitchen.
But it’s not just the use of marble in celebrity family kitchens that we admire; The furniture pieces in the room also provide us with design inspiration. The seating area shown above, reflecting the curved kitchen trend, offsets well the solid and blocky nature of the marble slabs.
A white bench with upholstery that looks like bouclé fabric adds an element of softness to the room and helps the space feel cozy and inviting, while the round table is crafted from cooler-toned stone that provides contrast to the room’s warmer tones.
