Wall Wow

I love the look of natural stone. I love the variation in shape and colour. I love it on walls. We have slate in a few places in our house. Here’s a peek at our backsplash:

I am working on a project right now and we are putting a stone feature wall in the reception area. It is going to be stunning. A gorgeous slate grey – it has the right amount of texture to add warmth yet formal enough for a business reception area.

I will share some pictures when it is done but in the meantime thought I’d take a look at what other feature walls are out there. Wood walls, stone walls … all are stunning.

The mix of colours in the stone wall and textured surface breaks up the smooth counters and floors.

I love the exposed brick in this bedroom … makes me want to crawl into bed with a book.

The mix of stone, wood and steel beams in this reception area adds drama and an earthy element.

How cool is this grouping of logs?

Although it might be art … the use of the circular shape is repeated in the tables and contrasted with the sharp lines in the seating.

Not sure I am a huge fan of the proportions of the stone wall to the fireplace but it does create a warm setting for relaxing.

An example of how adding a stone wall can break up the space and add some zoom to bleh.


Maybe I will figure out how to incorporate these walls into another space. Any takers?

  1. I love homes/spaces with a large stone feature. My brother just did a large wall of stone his fire place (similar to the one you didn’t like…but his is perfectly proportioned!), and it looks fantastic. I find in most cases they look to modern for my home… PLUS seems to work better with 9 foot ceilings or higher…do you agree? I have a photo I have been saving in my files of a stone wall behind the master bed…..do you think this could work with 8 foot ceilings.| Thanks
