West Village Kitchen Stone Accent Wall
West Village is lauded for its architecture, shade trees, cobblestone streets, Federal-style townhouses, enchanting shops and trendy restaurants. The Wine Hut, Spirits of Carmine and Pop the Cork Wine Merchants are faves for beer, wine and spirits, while Anine Bing and Castor & Pollux are don't-miss boutiques. It is sophisticated and edgy, classy and funky, akin to a stunning stacked stone interior wall that Paintworks & Decorating recently installed in a West Village kitchen.
Also called ledge stone, this horizontal rock installation backs into weep screed or metal lath and takes a knowledgeable crew and finely-tuned hands to prep the wall, manage the adhesive and place the stones precisely where they will each complement one another in the overall scheme. Stonework is sophisticated for its timeless appeal. It is, after all, one of the oldest materials on earth and comes in myriad shapes, colors and textures. It is edgy to integrate stacked stone into a modern kitchen. Classy applies comfortably to all natural rock formations, and the ledge stone with its rough 3-D edges projects a funky kind of wow factor. Paintworks also laid new flooring, strategically placing it down before building the stacked stone wall above it. When a creative wave of interior upgrades strikes your fancy, remember that Paintworks & Decorating, based in Manhattan, can guide your whims and deliver impressive results.
