Every time we go out to a river or a creek, we collect some of those beautiful and adorable pebbles that we find there as a memory of that day, and when we go back home, we show them to everyone while talking about our trip. River rocks also could be useful in our home decoration. With natural colors and round shapes, river rocks could make your home design spectacular and stylish. You can use them to decorate your bathroom, bedroom, backyard or any place in your home. More advantages for using river stones is that they require no maintenance, and will almost cost you nothing as you can have as many rocks as you want from any river. Here is a collection of ideas and tutorials to decorate your home with river rocks.
