Overview

Whether you are considering an elegant streamlined look or a rustic mountain style, Stone Style has the answer. Discover the depth and range of uses for stone materials such as limestone, marble, granite, slate, and fieldstone in both indoor and outdoor decorating.

Uses of natural stone have increased in recent years, and with this has come a broadening of the design palette. Natural stone is finding its way into design plans for everyday residences as homeowners take notice of not only the aesthetic benefits but also the practical adantages of the material.

A panoply of stones and surface finishes--including polished, honed, sandblasted, tumbled, bushhammered, and flamed--are introduced, showing that the considered selection of both stone type and finish are keys to setting one's home apart and above.

Reis and Adams introduce advice from design professionals about choosing from and incorporating stone, as well as suggestions for maintaining the beauty of the stone indoors and outdoors.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
If you're thinking about remodeling your home and using natural stone, you'll want this show-and-tell book about marble, granite, limestone, slate and fieldstone.

The beautiful photographs are accompanied by information on how and where natural stone works best.

While the images will feed your imagination, the stories behind the projects will help to keep your expectations real. Early on, we learn that "just like finishes, different types of natural stone lend themselves to specific looks." For example, some stones work better indoors than outdoors, some lend themselves to the rustic look, others work well in kitchen spaces.

Read an Excerpt

Introduction

In stark contrast to European preferences--where stone has traditionally been part and parcel fo residential design--the North American trend in homebuilding has historically been defined by man-made materials such as aluminum siding, carpeting and linoleum. And while natural stone has not been completely absent from American homebuilding over the past two centuries, it has generally been a material considered only for the higest end of the building spectrum.

However, consumer awareness about natural stone has increaded over the past few decades, and with this has come a broadening of the design palette. Natural stone is finding its way into design plans for everyday residences, as homeowners are taking notice of not only the aesthetic benefits but also the practical advantages of the material. Using natural stone in residential design opens the door to endless possibilities. With such a wide range of materials ont he market today, just about any look imaginable can be created.
