• I’ve been toying with the idea of a concrete bathroom vanity for a little while. I love the one we have at the moment but it’s made of MDF and because our bathroom is a wet room, it’s starting to show signs of wear and tear already (we definitely chose pretty over practical).  Since we have slate floors and charcoal coloured walls i figure concrete would be a good solution – plus white pops against it so nicely so the basin would also look great. 3d42eb3cdae05d5d82e504140b75eda1

    One of the things i love about concrete surfaces is that they are such a great foil for other textures – whether in the form of wood or in this case faux fur. You can see in this pic how well a monochromatic palette works when concrete is in the mix.

    Aren’t these open kitchen shelves with the concrete ‘bracket’ great?

    I love this idea – if you want to bring in the industrial-luxe look into your home, you can with concrete wallpaper – like this one by Robin Sprong Wallpaper Cement1

    Concrete works in both a rustic and relaxed environment and in a more sophisticated space too Cement2

    I just love this bathroom – the wood, white and grey work so well together and look how the white stools pop against that countertop! e31e24d58a03671a004d16eb9c19c1a9

    Love this look!

    Have a happy day

      The wallpaper idea is actually so clever. Well done Robin Sprong!

      There is one draw back to concrete – and – that is the fact that whatever fixture you are doing is ‘ cast in stone’. It takes nothing less than demolition to do away with it. I have a client who had found her concrete kitchen counter top and units to be a draw back when she put the house up for sale.
