Wall texture - I'm interested in learning more about the hemp and limestone wall covering. Was the material mixed from scratch on-site? Is it available commercially? Any information would be appreciated.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The couple invested in geothermal heating systems and bought materials exclusively from local sources. Exposed beams, picture windows and an inner courtyard create a cozy and warm living space.A local artisan created hemp and limestone walls, which have a velvety appearance. "The walls don't contain gypsum or paint and are VOC free," says Karsenti. Wood and polystyrene forms with a coating of black carbon paint support the hemp and limestone top layer. The black carbon paint blocks electromagnetic waves (EMFs) from cell phone towers, Karsenti and others believe. "With all the information available and the statistics to support the health problems related to EMFs, we are taking precautions — especially since we have a child in the house," she says. "I admit that I wasn't aware of using black carbon paint to block EMFs," says designer Gervais Fortin, "but as a designer I'm in favor of creating a client's vision of a happy and healthy home." "The phones inside the house have cords, so they don't give off EMFs," says Karsenti. She carries a cell phone in her purse but switches it to airplane mode in the house and reroutes cell phone calls to the home's landline.Sofa: Meubles Re-no
