Pebbles are a great way to incorporate the beauty of nature in both interior and exterior home design. Here are some ideas on how you can use these stones of various shapes, colors, and sizes to bring in a completely different look to your living spaces:
1. Pebbles as Decorations
Using pebbles as ornaments can be as easy as placing a bowlful on a center table to lend an earthy, Zen-like appeal, or piling them in a regular glass vase with water topped with a nice flower. Pebbles can also be used to substitute functional decorations at home. Some examples are candle holders, paper weights, and bookends. Pebbles can also be utilized as your own canvas. You can paint animals, landscapes, and portraits, or decoupage flowers on them!

2. Pebbles as Wall or Floor Details
Pebbles offer a great way to add texture to walls and floors. In this kitchen, the designer artfully used them along the curved island, breaking up the traditional limestone tile layout and highlighting the kitchen space. On a wall, a pebble border adds three-dimensional quality to an otherwise flat tile design. It also helps in tying together a neutral color scheme.

3. Pebbles in the Bathroom
Pebbles bring a relaxing, spa-like feel to bath spaces, and they work well with wood and other natural elements. Cover an entire vanity wall with pebble tiles to create a dramatic focal point. In the shower area, pebble tiles are an excellent choice for a slip-resistant floor. A plus is that they feel like a gentle massage on your bare feet.
4. Pebbles below the Stairs and along Paths
Placing pebbles just below the stairs can add beautiful color and textural contrast. This delivers an unexpected eye-catching accent to perk up quiet corners in your home. You can also layer pebbles along paths. The result will be a welcoming and visually pleasing space.
5. Pebbles as Pool Details
Pebbles work well with water features. As a lining for swimming pools, they create a spectacular landscape. Pebbles also create a natural, beach-like atmosphere and can be used to cover unsightly areas around the pool.
There are many ways to use pebbles in sprucing up your home. We hope these ideas inspire you!
