What is it about stone walls in a room that conjures up coziness? I love the ‘look’ and have often wished I could live in a stone cottage or at the very least, have a stone wall in my home.
A few years ago hubby and I added some stack stone to the front of our house. You may have noticed that I’ve never included pictures of the front of my house. The reason is that the 1968 architectural style (or lack thereof) is not my idea of what a cottage should look like. I guess I fancy our smallish home to be a cottage and the exterior architectural lines of our house doesn’t comply.
I used to dream that one day I’d add a pitch to the roof on the left side (we have a flat roof on one side of the house) and dormers to the steep pitch that extends over the garage on the right side of the house. That never happened so when I see photographs of stone rooms I immediately slip into ‘dream land’ and imagine a stone cottage in the Cotswold’s or Irvine, I’m not that particular!
Do you dream of a cottage in the Cotswold’s?

Stone walls are beautiful to admire. I know what you mean. I have to say, the company I work for, McGraw-Hill, has a list of top quality manufacturers and suppliers of exterior stone. I think you will be truly amazed if you check them out. There are so many different designs, styles and textures these days.
Amy thanks for the link-maybe there is a stone wall in my future.
Thanks for stopping by
