Concrete block walls and a polished concrete floor frame this enormous great room in urban industrial style. The wood paneled ceiling adds warmth and a natural touch. Bold, colorful accents (love the pink fireplace!) are cheeky pops of personality.
This open kitchen with cement block walls and walnut cabinets feels modern and streamlined. A metal pendant light above the dining table illuminates the space and adds an industrial note. The large window adds an open feeling to the room and brings the outdoors inside.
Dark concrete flooring connects the living room and dining room, with a concrete block fireplace acting as the room divider. A dark wood ceiling and wood accent wall add beautiful contrast and warmth to the design.
Colorful glazed concrete blocks brighten the wall as visitors approach the front door of this modern beach house. Underfoot, large concrete pavers are situated in a bed of loose river pebbles, carving out a walkway.
This great room is perfect for large family gatherings. It features concrete flooring, a Mediterranean-style bar, and rustic ceiling beams. The upper portion of the block wall uses smaller blocks to create an impression of greater height.
Natural materials shine in this modern living space. Unique wood block walls, polished concrete floors and a limestone fireplace surround work in concert to create a comfortable yet sharp area. Painted white ceilings work to soften the space.
The neutral palette gives a peaceful mood to this charmingly rustic kitchen that features exposed brick walls, concrete floors and a birch beam ceiling. Kitchen cabinets from the 1950s were salvaged and topped with new butcher block countertops.
Custom-cut slate wall and concrete fireplace surround make for a stunning rustic focal wall in this contemporary Craftsman living room. A comfortable neutral sofa is paired with sleek, lounge-like chairs for cozy seating, while a low bench in front of the French doors provides extra seating without blocking the lake views.
The sleek look of this covered patio is the perfect fit for a modern home. A full-length light strip gives off a warm glow over the two concrete floor panels. The natural rock bed and row of small greenery bring beautiful natural textures to the space, while a concrete privacy wall outlines the perimeters without blocking any natural light.
Holographic pool tile shines above the negative edges of this pool, catching the eye with sparks of color. A natural rock retaining wall ties over the pool with a built in waterfall feature flowing into the pool. A desert inspired planted section separates the pool wall from the second tier retaining wall with neutral concrete blocks and black fencing.
Two fully open walls allow for tons of natural light to flood into the contemporary living room visible from the patio. Natural stones surround a series of large cement blocks creating the patio floor. A smooth wood ceiling gives a great textural contrast to the rocks.
A one-of-a-kind cast concrete wall acts as the guest entry way to dining area of the Broken Spanish Restaurant. Sandblasted Brazilian marble floors create depth and add a balanced contrast to the “tin” textured ceiling in the main dining room. Behind, a decorative cinder block wall is adorned with hanging plants in a nod to indoor-outdoor eating.
The walls pull back at this modern home to open the living and dining room up to the natural elements. The wooden ceiling extends out to create a simple covered patio with concrete blocks set in a natural rock bed. Light colored furniture keeps the space calm with orange accent pieces adding pops of color to bring the design to life.
