Tips on how to decorate
To make the right choice, you have to focus on two things : the color and the texture of the stone. Authentic and natural, no pigment is added to our stones. Their appearance can vary from stone block to stone block. Listen to yourself and dress up your entrance hall to make it a modern, warm and stylish space.
Darker stones like our New York or Londres mica will give a modern atmosphere to your common areas, whereas brighter stones like our Stockholm stone will brighten and expand your space. If you want to bring a softer side to it, try a warm-toned slate like Ankara. Warm colors will soften and bring a warmer atmosphere. As for the texture, natural glitters in the mica will reflect light and make your lobby a brighter space. We recommend our Riga or Oslo stones.
