The 5 Best Interior Design Styles to Incorporate Natural Stone

Natural Stone is a truly versatile material and can elevate so many different design styles. From trendy tiles to rustic crafted home accents, sleek slabs, and more, the application options are endless, and you can truly customize your selections to match and style.

If you’re looking for a little design inspiration, we have pulled together some of our favorite design styles, perfect for incorporating natural stone.


Take your space back to the golden era of Hollywood Glam with glamorous spaces, luxurious layers, and bold personality. Pair a moody backsplash and metallic finishes with over-the-top embellishments to complete the look. Add touches of glam with velvet textures and crystal light fixtures and elevate the space with polished fixtures. You can also create depth and dimension in your design using layered materials and design elements.

“Seaspired” Designs

Make everyday a staycation by designing an in-home retreat inspired by your favorite seaside getaway. Pair a neutral stone, like our coral stone, with beachy blue tones and cane rattan accents. You can create a bright clean space, without looking sterile, by adding warm neutrals and textures. Use tile, paint, or accent art to incorporate other sea glass tones and create a constant reminder of your favorite beach. Finish the look with sea glass beads or vases and calming candles. Then, sit back, and relax.

French Country Design

Make your space the perfect blend of casual elegance using soft and rustic accents. Get swept away to the French countryside with this luxurious farmhouse design which incorporates gorgeous natural stone floors and staircase as a stunning foundation for the design.

Craft your stone details with soft edges to evoke a time-worn look and opt for earthier tones as opposed to stark whites. Level up the rustic charm with wrought iron, vintage, and antique finds, and of course, lots of art! Other stylistically appropriate accents include hand-cut mosaic, artisanal products, distressed woods, and cozy linens, which will keep your design infused with tradition.


Simple Craftsman

Design a dreamy craftsman-inspired space by focusing on clean simple lines and timeless charm, and of course, hand-crafted elements.  Natural stone is a great addition to the back of built-ins in the bathroom to complement tile floors, showers, or countertops. The simplicity of some natural stones also lends itself well to countertops or backsplash selections, typically in light neutrals like beige and white.

If you are looking to show old-school artistry, incorporate a stained-glass mosaic as a kitchen backsplash or a shower wall feature. Craftsman designs showcase the craftsmanship of artists through the simplicity of natural materials such as straight-lined wide trims and carved wood molding.

Did you know that natural stone is also a great option for creating custom moldings and intricate craftsman details? Our team of experienced stone craftsmen can fabricate a variety of design elements from natural stone, outside of the standard tile and slab applications.


Industrial Loft

Industrial design is making a comeback, here are a few ways you can infuse a little of this style into your space.

Incorporate exposed building elements such as brick walls, wooden beams, and dark pipes to give your space urban-chic vibes. In a kitchen or bathroom, use simple elements like white subway tiles to complement a mix of cabinets and open shelving. Add an accent wall with exposed brick to finish the look.

Don’t be afraid to try something different in your space! Including textures and patterns, like stone laid in a herringbone pattern, can add definition to a bar, pantry, and create visual space markers in an industrial open floorplan.

Keep the bathroom space light and open with a bright stone tile. Choose a rustic finish to create a sense of rawness and carry the “unfinished” look into each space. Put the finishing touches on your design with rustic wood pieces, Edison light bulbs, and neutral colors.
