Amazing private residence in Bucharest decorated with natural stone
Home decoration project requires planning, a good analysis of space, but also focusing on important principles such as consistency or balance. We continue the series of articles featuring the most beautiful projects of our clients, this time with a private residence in the north of Bucharest, a project developed with passion, in total agreement with the original plan - a classic line house with modern elements. Natural stone is a material with an intense personality, and the SKIN flexible slate veneer, Classic Cross Cut Brushed Travertine Mini French Pattern Set, Peach travertine and Multi Slate Stripes Wall Cladding Panel highlight the natural look in most of the spaces.
From the very beginning, the owners contracted professionals and totally comply with the architect's concept: "The house was designed by a Romanian architect, established in Australia for some time. Just as it looks now, so it was designed: the multi panel in the living room, the two walls, the rooms ... We loved the idea."
Where did they find inspiration? "We were familiar with the materials, we studied design magazines and we also traveled, so this approach, in which travertine and its warmth is highlighted was perfect for us. Although we aimed for classical lines, we did not want a severe classic either, therefore we adopted an eclectic style - modern objects and something towards classic" according to the house owners, PIATRAONLINE customers.
In order to "warm up" the stone appearance, the owners have been careful both in how it is highlighted by light, using both natural and artificial light, but have also worked on combinations with other materials such as wood: "Floors were cladded with Classic Cross Cut Brushed Travertine Mini French Pattern Set (except for bedrooms, living room and dressing, where they used parquet) due to the very beautiful appearance and heat resistant properties - we have underfloor heating. For highlighting the stone in the living room, we increased the glass surface from 3 to 6 Velux windows and used LED spotlights with warm light for the ceiling, 30 centimeters from the stone wall" according to the owners.

For the kitchen, we decided for oriental terrazzo: "Originally we were looking for ceramic tiles and we wanted some cheerful tiles, but when we saw PIATRAONLINE showroom with the oriental terrazzo upstairs wall, we loved it."

The story of the bathroom design, with a final look that impressed us, starts from the warm look of the travertine, loved by the owners. They bought the materials and configured the main ideas, so that later could work with an interior designer to help them integrate the elements and avoid the mistakes regarding the more subtle parts of the decoration. "We visited PIATRAONLINE showroom quite often, because it is close to us and Marius (PIATRAONLINE sales consultant) showed us the flexible slate. We were looking for something to apply very quickly (we wanted a color, we thought about the wallpaper or some type of painting), so that, in a couple of years, if we decide for something else, we could do it without major works. The designer has confirmed our decision on the flexible slate: it is a large tile, will not clutter the space and highlights the travertine floor " indicate the owners, mentioning that the lady selected the model of flexible slate, since she considered the shades of Indian Autumn perfect for their matrimonial bath.

The classic style tub is perfectly matched by the natural appearance of the slate, the sanitary items have been chosen in more modern lines, and the large mirror, with golden frames, transmits a feeling of extended space. Also interesting is the window layout – the natural light highlights perfectly the shades of the natural stone decorative wall.
