Stone walls – yay or nay?

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday to all! Once again I want to apologize for being away yesterday all day, you haven’t received any updates from me on Twitter and Facebook, but I’m back today, with your daily slice of inspiration on Facebook and lots of creative tweets, so come join me!

In other news: you know, I’ve been thinking lately about stone walls in a room, trying to figure out how do I feel about them: is this a modern look, which is about someone’s personal style or is it only a cold detail, which, as I think, doesn’t bring any coziness to a room? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen lots of homes with stone walls (or at least a portion of the wall covered with stones) and I do think that if the owner feels comfortable with them, it’s fantastic. However, I wouldn’t go with stone walls in my own home, I’ll not stand their unfinished look and am sure will never feel entirely warm in that home.

So, I’m asking for your opinion now: yay or nay? Give your votes!

I know that stone walls are calling for a country look, even more if they’re paired with a wooden beam – sounds like the perfect rustic wonderland. I’m afraid to disappoint, but this is totally not my style and I’m pretty sure homes like this wouldn’t be in my horizon. P.S. Please don’t think I’m a hater of stone walls :)

    I vote yay! I love stone walls, I think they look great and make a room really cozy. Not to mention what an architectural feature

    I would totally consider having a stone wall in my home. I think brick is warmer than slate, but if they’re not your style then no big deal. That, for me, is what’s so great about home design — everyone has their own style and they let their home reflect that.

    Yay. At least not as bad for me as tiles in the living room. Oh my, when I first entered our new house about a year ago I thought it will never feel cozy until that granite ugliness on flooring is gone!

    Oops, I meant on the floor.
    Other than that, wooden paneling is much more preferable than stones.

    I kind of love them. Especially fond of images four and six. A lovely, dark stone wall paired with delicate fabrics in light colors could be heavenly. Sounds like a nice compromise to male vs. female decor styles.

    Since part of my family originates from England, I really love the British charm they send off.

    Yes, it is definitely a ‘do’. Of course, it should be made perfect, otherwise there’s a risk it’d look cheap. I like it! ~

    I would live in a house totally made of stone,and think it’s beautiful if it shows in interior

    A huge YAY!! I like it if a small part of the room (like one wall) is in stone or brick so then it’s not as cold-looking. Kind of like the room in the 2nd to last picture.

    As I see most of you love a stone wall done right. I may change my opinion after seeing your comments :) Thank you all for stopping by! xo
