TREND WATCH:

Natural stone as interior cladding

“One of my favourite trends, seen all over Europe, is the use of natural stone as interior cladding. My favourite spaces are those with great texture that make you want to reach out and touch things. Natural stone does that for me and it instantly connects to the natural surroundings outdoors when you see both it and the view to the outside at the same time. We don’t build with it here enough due to upfront cost, but there are definite advantages.”

Elements of style: »»

Stone creates a sense of longevity and safety.

»»

Warm and cozy when lighted properly.

»»

Never goes off trend and can be used in any interior or exterior style.

»»

Upfront cost may be high, but natural stone never needs to be replaced or repaired in the same way as does wood and drywall.
