Stone Wall Decor: Adding Texture to the Home

Something about the fall season brings out the need for warm and cozy texture in the home. Pillows and throws are a simple solution, but what about the architectural appeal of a stone wall?

In my childhood home there was a large stone wall fireplace in the center of the room, running up to the peak of the vaulted wood ceiling. I never appreciated that room as much as I should have. This rustic stone fireplace brings back memories of that expansive living room.

If a stone wall feels too dungeon-like to you, simply choose a lighter shade of stone-work.

If an entire room cloaked in stone is too much for you, consider applying it to just one wall in the room.

I love this bathroom – it’s so elegant with its pale stone walls, custom cabinetry, and a darker tile floor. Wood mirrors echo the trim of the wood window. Beautiful!

It’s probably best if I don’t have a bathroom like this country style place to bathe – I’d never come out!

  1. Love all those stone walls thank you for sharing Marie.

  2. Sigh. Those are wonderful examples of stone walls. I think I have been in love with them since 6th grade when a friend had a family room addition and kept the stone wall. Now, if you looked in my sewing room ,you would see several torn out pages of magazines featuringrough stone walls and fireplaces. Now I have a few more ideas to drool over.

    I would love to have a stone wall, they are so warm and wonderful. At my parents house they had a beautiful stone fireplace with sitting on each side,it was all just beautiful. They built an inside garden on one end.The Christmas memories are endless and wonderful.

  4. Those pale, light stone walls REALLY spoke to me.
