August 20, 2017

Many consider black and gray to be the most elegant of neutrals. Not only do they provide the perfect backdrop for any style of home décor, but they also never go out of fashion. And one of our favorite ways to feature these classic colors is with natural stone installations.

To demonstrate just how powerful this palette can be for your design dreams, we’re highlighting some of our favorite stacked stone installations in black and gray.

Give your fireplace a face-lift by adding beautiful stacked stone, making it the focal point of your room!

Your backsplash doesn’t have to be flat and boring. Install a three-dimensional showstopper like Calacatta Cressa 3D Stacked Stone. This classic marble stone, with its soft gray veins and clean lines, works well in both modern and traditional designs. It blends in nicely with the white cabinetry, but still offers beautiful texture and pattern to the design.

Instead of putting up wallpaper, consider installing stacked stone on your walls! A thin stone like Charcoal Pencil Stacked Stone is excellent for a larger surface area because the sleek, split-face slate won’t overwhelm your space. In this monochromatic design, the medium-tone gray hue serves as the perfect neutral backdrop for other light and dark gray tones to stand out.

Coal Canyon

Why only add stone to the fireplace when you can cover an entire wall? Coal Canyon Stacked Stone is a black, split-face quartzite that infuses a more contemporary look into this rustic design.

By installing it from floor to ceiling, the natural stone draws the eye up toward the tall A-frame ceiling. Plus, the high contrast in color with the oak floors emphasizes the warmth of the wood.
