Natural stone mosaic in the living room. Down with monotony, long live diversity.

Before everything else, we should mention that mosaics are very easy to install because the small stone tiles are already pre-applied on pieces of mesh that can be 30 x30 cm or 15 x 30 cm wide. It's time we discredit the preconception that mosaics are installed piece by piece. In fact, everything runs smoothly.

Natural stone mosaic - an impressive range of products

There are many more mosaics than you can think of. Depending on the finish, you can find polished, splitface, tumbled and special finish mosaics. The stones used can be marble, travertine, onyx and slate. Each type of stone also has a number of varieties. Marble can be Thassos, Black, Picasso, Emperador etc., while travertine, for instance, has Noce, Scabas, Classic, Yellow and many more. Then come the mixed stones: Classic travertine with tumbled 3D Latte Konkav travertine or Thassos marble with Kavala Kivos. And the list goes on.   
You don't need to apply a lot of mosaic to get the desired effect. A single wall cladded with these small tiles is enough to change the entire appearance of the room: it develops more depth, the space becomes more dynamic, while the chromatic choice can give it a neutral or colourful appeal.

Splitface Classic 3d travertine mosaic

In the above image you can see a special type of mosaic. The ruggedness of the splitface finish is suited for a minimalist design approach with glossy, modern surfaces. The splitface finish is truly versatile. You can see that in the below image that captures a striking association between Burdur Beige marble and wood. This mix can work with black wood or any wood with a natural finish for rustic or Mediterranean-inspired projects.

Splitface Picasso marble mosaic

Moving one with another example for the splitface stones, always in fashion, because of their unfinished look. This type of finish highlights the stone's texture which makes people feel close to nature's wildness and to the relaxation it brings about. In this example, the Splitface Picasso marble mosaic complements the simplicity of the living room by counterbalancing the modern graphics of the interior with the gentle vibe and colours of marble.

Black Dizzy marble mosaic

Black Dizzy marble mosaic can be a good option for a more industrial, technical minimalism accentuated with stainless steel and scarce furniture. Yet this type of marble can also be suited for a shabby chic project that has a vintage atmosphere or for refined, elegant decors.       

Natural stone mosaic for both a large and a small wall

One of the biggest design mistakes you can make is covering the entire living room with mosaic. because this type of project is made specifically to function as a decorative, contrasting accent in the larger design scheme. The eye can rest upon a mosaic-cladded wall. It attracts attention and also gives the viewer time to discover the rest of the room. You can see an example below.
The splitface Red Valencia travertine mosaic create a focus point in the living room. Although it covers a pretty small area, the effect is substantial: it becomes the splash of colour that livens up the room. Imagine if this wall were white like the rest of the room. Pretty monotonous, right?
