Want some drama in your home décor? Add a stone element. Nothing looks dramatic and minimalist quite like a stony addition. The raw appeal of a stone wall lends a unique character and mood to any space. 

Slowly become a favourite among interior decorators, stone walls can be used to achieve an innovative and earthy look. The best part is this versatile material can be used in most of your rooms to give a different look to the area. Here are some interesting stone wall ideas that can offer a designer look to your home…

An accent wall

Believe it or not, the more natural elements you bring into your home, the better it is for your mind and body. Neutral colour stones blend well with the colour palettes and décor of most homes. 

Think of using a beautiful stone wall as an accent wall or as a divider to offer privacy to another dining area. Use large rough stones of different sizes to add to the minimalist look.  

Achieving the right symmetry

You can also use granite, river stone or marble rocks to create a wall of beauty. However, you must keep the shape and size in mind for the right symmetry. Expert architects can combine different sizes without leaving any gap between the rocks. 

The picture here shows an example of a stunning stone wall, put together by Kababie Architects, as part of a media room decor. Indirect Lighting creates a cozy atmosphere which fits the rustic style. 

A cool courtyard wall

Stone tablets are best suited for outdoor décor. The irregular surface and the dynamic texture of this sort of wall is ideal for an outdoor garden or a courtyard.

The industrial look

If you want a modern yet experimental look in your living room, use a corner for installing a wall of smooth dark flagstones. This will offer a rich industrial look that has a raw and a minimalistic appeal. 

Look at the fireplace right beneath the wall that adds an element of warmth and comfort—modern, yet timeless.
