As we have said in the past we are certainly partial to a bit of concrete and brutalism in our homes. What is great to see, is that this material is accessible to all with more stores introducting home accessories and furniture using concrete.

Last year and a large part of this year we have seen concrete sit alongside metalics, like copper, brass and gold. Now we are seeing a more sedated, subtle use of concrete mixed with glass and wood.

Of course the metal additions are still there, but more toned down, likely in brushed brass and black finishes.

The great thing about concrete is that it comes in all shapes and sizes, and works in all rooms. Vases and table tops in the living room, pendant lights in the bedroom, utensil pots in the kitchen or stationary storage in an office. The options are endless.

Concrete lends itself really well to industrial, Scandinavian and monochrome interiors, but it can also make a statement in other settings. A concrete lamp base or table top, can be dressed up with colour and print to suit.

The real winner for using concrete in your home is to blend it with neutral tones and mixed textures. There are no rules so have a go at introducing this material into a room and we garauntee you will go back for more.
