A Unique Designer Home Draws Tranquil Tones and Luxurious Finishes from the Use of Natural Stone

By: Dipietro Trading Jun 13th, 2019

This striking home by designer Amy Hirsch shows a thoughtful fusion of elegant natural materials, such as mahogany, linen, and multiple types of natural stone, and a modern layout that is alternately spacious and cozy to create spaces which emanate peace and tranquility.

This soaring fireplace surround is at once both subtle and breathtaking. The cool neutral tones and softly polished surface of the natural stone slabs are accented by feather-light strokes of painterly natural mineral patterns across the entire face of the stone. The clean lines of the fireplace ensure that its vast visual imprint is eye-catching, but not overwhelming.

Relaxing hues of dove-gray and taupe in the natural stone surface pair beautifully with a coordinating selection of softly textured furniture around the open living room. This creates a space which is both grand and intimate, ideal for family gatherings, cocktail parties, and important occasion events.

The inspired use of natural stone continues to the kitchen, where similarly soothing hues of cornflower blue and eggshell abound. A custom table surrounded on three sides by linen-covered built-in seating is flooded with light from the paneled windows showing off flourishing foliage beyond.

Sleek white cabinets with angular hardware touches are given an equally modern finish with a uniquely shaped natural stone island and breakfast bar with custom waterfall countertops. An on-trend cabinet- height tall backsplash ensconces the stove area with the same natural stone and unites this spacious kitchen with a coordinated laid-back feel.

Last but not least, the same natural stone used in the breakfast bar and counters in the main kitchen space is paired with glass to create a noteworthy secondary sink and backsplash showing off the open staircase beyond.
