Limestone is one of those lasting materials that doesn’t age, remains trendy and tasteful for years – and even centuries. Over the past few years, we’ve noticed a surge in limestone for interior design as people rediscover its texture and allure.
Limestone is known for giving your home an individual and traditional look. The natural beauty of this stone can create a retreat vibe, which offers something a little bit different than marble and granite. It has a rich history and its durability can be seen in The Great Pyramids of Giza and ancient temples.
It seems only natural that limestone lends its elegance into everything its incorporate in – from feature walls and floor tiles to kitchen splashbacks and benchtops.

Striking in its unique cream colour and texture, Crema Novelda Limestone stands out from the pack. This is a brand-new addition to the Stone & Tile Studio limestone range, all of which have been hand-selected from the finest quarries in Europe.

These unusual features make for an unmatchable point of interest. Crema Novelda stone tiles are naturally hard wearing and simple to maintain, making it easy to preserve its beauty.
Chic uses of limestone in the home – inside and out
As a Kitchen splashback
Regardless of what your countertops are, a limestone splashback is a visual feast, especially in the kitchen. A polished limestone can bring the rich colours and textures to life and complement any pops of colour you’d like to incorporate.
To balance natural wood
If your home is laid with dark hardwood flooring, pairing it with pops of limestone – in hallways, as staircase features and as feature walls – creates the perfect balance of natural materials. One is earthy and organic, and the other its indulgent cousin creates a stunning fusion.
Around the fireplace
Limestone tiles produce a dazzling effect around the frame of a built-in fireplace, which enhances the intrinsic focal point character of a fireplace. Laying the limestone tiles in a consistent pattern will help focus the gaze.
