Tough Love || CONCRETE

April 30, 2013



This kitchen kills me in every way....the dark cabinets, the fab Tom Dixon lighting, the mirrors, but mainly the concrete table here.  The industrial look of concrete pairs so nicely with more glamorous surroundings.   I love its color and the feeling it gives off of weight and strength....kind of like it will outlast everyone and everything.    I'm in need of a concrete desk for sure. 




And if you are looking for some concrete DIYs....look no further Erin has three fab ones here. Do you like the look of concrete?  Or is too rugged for you?

  2. I love concrete counters with a waxed finish, or those concrete walls in your images, paired with wood and glass. Very interesting material. With endless uses! Have a great day .

  9. I think I shivered while reading this post. I want to like concrete in homes but It seems so cold to me. If I was a guy I think I'd be totally into it though ;)

  10. Oh you know I love me some concrete! I was just researching how to turn my laminate bath counters into a concrete surface last night. I'm working up the confidence to pull it off.

    Nice post today! ... and thanks for the shout-out to my previous post Albertina!

  16. I love the look of concrete, especially floors, though to be honest, lately I'm more into wooden floors, but still love the industrial look!

  18. I have to tell you I lived in a loft with concrete floors and walls for years and ended up hating them. Freezing all the time and hard to keep clean. People associate concrete as being low maintenance but its actually very porous so it stains easily, we had to reseal a few times which is a HUGE pain in the ass. Please be careful with any expensive applications.

    Sorry if I sound like debby downer!!!! I just learned the hard way and don't want anyone else to lose their hard earned pennies! XO
