tutti i pavimenti della mia casa...


Explanation:
...dovrebbero essere di marmo, di colore grigio quasi bianco...

sarebbe propriamente biancastro-grigiastro, ma non vi è nulla di sognante in queste terminazioni in "astro"!

disagree  Floriana: "marblized" does not mean the floors are made of marble, just made to look like marble.

agree  Gian: Sorry, I made a mistake, I agrre with Floriana and disagree with Marisapad and Teresa. The verb "to marbleize" means to make , colo, grain, or streak in imitation of marble. May be the writer intended to have floors in real marble!

tutti i pavimenti (della mia casa ideale) sarebbero marmorizzati in sfumature di bianco e grigio


Explanation:
Literally "All the floors (in my ideal house) would be marblized in shades of white and gray".

I had never thought of marblizing floors (I've seen many marblized walls, even candles, but no floors), but it seems it's a trend. I got lots of hits. Check out the site referenced below.

If by "floor" you meant "storey", add it in the context box.

vorrei che tutti i pavimenti della mia casa ideale fossero marmorizzati con sfumatire di un colore..


Explanation:
La domanda chiede di esprimere un desiderio quindi, scostandosi un pò dalla traduzione letterale di "would be" userei il verbo "vorrei".
e poi: ...di un colore fra il bianco sporco/fra il grigio e il bianco

L'intera pavimentazione di casa mia sarebbe


Explanation:
bianco grigio marmorizzato.

Ha ragion e Floriana, la marmorizzazione è un tipo di lavorazione che riproduce le venature del marmo.
Buon lavoro
