Inside & Out, Stone Veneer Creates Stunning Scenes
While quality manufactured stone veneer is able to evoke a vivid sense of place with detailed authenticity, you often see just one or two stone profiles or colors used in a home. This contemporary Spanish-style home in the desert southwest features several stone profiles, used throughout the interior and exterior, to create visual impact with a rich blend of shapes and textures.

 

Architect Neal Aronson, NCARB and founder of Florida firm Aronson & Associates, created the houseplans, and is a huge fan of stone, especially on interiors. “The possibilities with stone veneer are virtually endless, and it delivers great results. Homeowners really gravitate to the look of stone,” says Aronson, who’s also a licensed contractor and founder of Aronson Estates Construction.
Four profiles of StoneCraft manufactured stone veneer, by The Tapco Group, are used throughout the home: on a full family room wall, the kitchen bar, a two-story foyer wall, the two-story fireplace, and the balconies and columns of the home’s façade.
“Ninety percent of people, if not more, aren’t going to know if this is natural stone or manufactured stone veneer. The quality and the aesthetics of the StoneCraft on the interior and exterior are great,” Aronson says. Some of the home’s interior designs actually mirror stone applications in Aronson’s own residence, such as the two-story wall and the bar.
“I like full walls of stone, so the family room area works fantastically, as does the two-story stairwell,” he notes. Kat Hildreth, Chief Estimator for Iovino Masonry, which installed the stone veneer, agrees. “The profile used in the stairwell is typically a grouted profile. Here it’s dry-stacked. It’s an outstanding, terrific look.”
StoneCraft’s ashlar-shaped Cobble profile rises up the staircase wall, blanketing it in a saturating field of varying Gray tones. The stones’ weather-worn edges and sandstone texture create solid appeal, contrasting with a simple metal staircase and the airiness of a long spiral-shaped chandelier. “A whole-wall approach like this inspires awe. It’s very striking,” Aronson says.
For the home’s other two-story application, the Ledgestone profile was used for a dramatic fireplace, stoking a sense of harmony and extra warmth. Here, the profile’s soothing, elegant lines feature the light earth tones and neutrals of StoneCraft’s Bucktown color.
“The whole feel of the house isn’t directed toward any one particular style. It takes elements of different styles and combines them in an eclectic fashion that just works,” Hildreth says. “I know our guys do a good job, but seeing these installations for the first time is amazing. The home is beautiful.”
For the home’s gathering places, the traditionally-styled Heritage profile provides rugged charm on a full family room wall and on the kitchen bar. Its linear shape and handcrafted, chiseled look combine for a distinctive, timeless appearance. These stones’ Pennsylvania coloring blends a variety of smoky grays and browns, creating a deep palette on the wall. On the bar, the stones’ bold texture complements the sheen of the kitchen’s stainless-steel appliances and lustrous, dark cabinetry. 
“Homeowners like stone veneer because it makes a distinct difference in the look and feel of their home,” Hildreth notes. “To some people, stone veneer makes it cozy, especially on the inside of their home. If they’ve got a fireplace with just a hearth on it, when they put up stone veneer it actually feels like a fireplace should – warmer and more traditional.”
On the home’s exterior, StoneCraft’s angular Fieldstone in the Bucktown color provides a rustic touch and adds dimension to the contemporary stucco façade done in tones reminiscent of caramel and khaki. Used around the bases of the posts that grace the entryway, and also on the façade’s two second-floor balconies, Fieldstone creates an inviting welcome with vibrantly contrasting texture.
Including the four used on the home, StoneCraft produces a total of nine distinct stone profiles, ranging from smooth water-worn looks to deeply-ridged contours and jagged angles, with some profiles available in as many as nine colors.
“When homeowners are educated on their options, stone veneer presents a natural, earthy, attractive look,” Aronson says. “StoneCraft is an authentic product. It doesn’t look cast. I would recommend it for varying home styles, from Mediterranean to modern.”
“The StoneCraft went up easily and our installers never had any issues,” adds Hildreth. Las Vegas-based company, Iovino Masonry, in business for 29 years, uses a mix of about 90 percent manufactured stone veneer and 10 percent natural stone veneer for jobs that range from small homes to $10 million homes and corporate headquarters.
“There are certain products that hold together well and are good products. StoneCraft is a great product that we can recommend,” Hildreth says. “With StoneCraft, the profiles are really clean cut. You can look at them and tell the difference between the profiles, and that’s pretty important, especially when you’re dealing with customers who want a certain look. You don’t want it to be ambiguous - you want it to be clear and authentic, and that’s what these stones are.”
