    Hi,
    Thank you very much for your compliments they are very kind.

    The flooring we used inside and outside including the pool area is a limestone tile called "Chiampo Limestone" and it was acid washed" so that it had a texture to it and was non slip outside.In the bathrooms we used the same tiles but instead of them being acid washed (A pitted look), we had the tile honed so that it was smooth. It was laid in what is known as a french pattern, basically made up of about 8 different tile sizes. many people thought it was carpet before they actually walked on it. We carried the acid washed tile outside because it extended the space and made it look bigger.You can seal the tiles if you like, but they really dont show up much dirt.

    We purchased them from a supplier called CDK stone here in Melbourne Australia. Their website address is www.cdkstone.com.au Their contact NO: is (03) 8552 6000. Ask for Tony Victor and mention our name as we think he is a great supplier and we work with them regularly.

LimestoneLimestone is known for its natural, earthen appearance and, unlike some stones, has little colour variation when cut from the same slab. Limestone is typically grey, white, beige and other natural tones, with a distinctive fleck. Limestone is more durable and resilient than travertine and it can be sanded for a perfectly smooth finish. This church conversion floor features a limestone tile known as ‘Chiampo Limestone’. It has been acid-washed for additional texture.

It was all about highlighting the void in the living room. The monolithic fireplace soars up to 6.5 metres (a little more than 21 feet). The standard ceiling height in Australia is half that. “It’s quite imposing when you’re standing there,” Marie says. The chimney has a black marble hearth and a plaster finish, and connects to the ceiling and timber trusses, both a hundred years old. Leaving the limestone floor “lumpy and bumpy,” she says, and adding an acid-washed finish, helped make the surface appear aged.

Great blend of modern and gothic. Space is open up through the loft via galls wall/divider. A bit "too modern" in some ways for Mike/Sandy, but directionally more were we would see the Lancaster property if we could wave a magic wand.
