This alphabet series I began some time ago has given me many sleepless nights! I used to think I was quite a decisive person, but I go to bed thinking that I will do a post on "S is for Subtle", then I change my mind and decide to do "S is for Shutters", and I plan the whole post in my head, then a few hours later I am convinced I should do "S is for Simplicity" and have to start from scratch. By early morning I have decided "S is for Silver" is definitely the way to go! At some stage I just have to settle for something and go for it....so "S is for Stone" it is going to be. I'm looking quite forward to X, Y and Z. Limited choice can be a good thing!
You might think that stone walls or floors could make a home feel cold and austere, but I think it has completely the opposite effect. The use of natural stone creates an earthy, rustic feel that makes a home inviting and livable. It can complement a range of decor styles, is durable and low maintenance and has excellent sound absorption properties. Here are some lovely examples of stone used both inside and outside. Maybe your heart will also turn to stone :).
Stay tuned for "T is for....." and I hope you appreciate the sleepless nights that are involved in bringing these blog posts to you.
Till next time
