Getting Stoned

One of my very favorite accent wall treatments is with stone, I love how it looks and feels, it’s really like bringing the outdoors inside.


There are so many wonderful colors in stone and of course, there’s the whole texture thing that stone brings to the game. Today you can buy stone panels that you can adhere to your walls, it comes in smaller sizes much like what’s used in tile to create backsplashes, as well as large sheets of stone in sizes of 4 foot by 8 foot. I really want to do this somewhere in our home, the stone just adds a totally different look and feel to a room. Here’s a look at what can be accomplished with stone, it’s not just for fireplaces anymore, Enjoy!!!


Even though this room is very neutral in color, including the stone wall, the stone adds a very different texture to the room, a whole other layer if you will. 


A wall of stone is great for a transitional wall like this one at the turn of a staircase. 


I can’t imagine the time and labor it took to mount these stones to an interior wall, but the look is gorgeous. 


Stone walls make great backdrops, here it acts as a background for the television and is accented with lighting.


I really like stone accent walls in bathrooms, it’s different than tile and makes a beautiful background for the vanity and mirror. 


I always think it’s hard to come up with things to hang on walls above bathtubs but this idea of nothing but beautiful stone is perfect and adds some earthy color to a very neutral bathroom.


Stone is a great idea for a niche, here it adds some drama to what otherwise would have been a boring white wall with a desk and shelves. 


This entry and staircase are EVERYTHING!!! From the stone on the double height wall to the staircase with a chrome and glass railing, the travertine floor and the amazing light fixtures. 


Of course, you don’t have to always cover whole walls with stone, stone on this kitchen island makes it pop.
