The bar in Bracero Cocina de Raiz is lined with cast concrete tiles designed in a geometric agave pattern. The bar exemplifies the dynamic blend of Southwestern and industrial styles seen throughout the restaurant.
To give this warm, woodsy kitchen an energetic mid-century modern vibe, designer Magued Barsoum chose custom-colored cast concrete for the swoop of island countertop. Backsplash tiles in a similar turquoise tone create the perfect backdrop for a collection of richly hued ceramics.
A custom fireplace, cast in place from concrete, anchors this stunning modern living room. Cherry wood strip flooring, curved and bent in a pattern matching the radial form of the home, and concrete circulation space runs the length of the open floor plan. Large sliding glass doors invite seamless indoor-outdoor living.
Cast in place concrete walls separate and create privacy in this stunning modern living room.

Gray tile placed in a vertical pattern echo the wood grains in the door and floating vanity in this master bathroom. The color and pattern of the tile also mimic concrete walls seen in other parts of the home.
This Mediterranean outdoor kitchen features a large stainless steel grill and a split-level BBQ counter and L-shaped bar serve bar made of cast concrete imbedded with recycled beer bottle glass. Travertine tile trim framed in Old World vintage tile liners matches the detailing on the adjacent outdoor shower.
The inspiration for the room’s tile-on-tile look came from Turkish bathhouses the family visited on vacation. Sonal put oversize cream-color hex tile on the floor, and graphic cement tile from Cement Tile Shop on the wall above the vanity. “Blending patterns in different sizes and scales looks exciting,” she says. A curvy bronze-edged mirror from Uttermost and an aged-finish vanity by Cabinetcraft Custom Cabinetry clinches the bathhouse vibe.
This bathroom's cement tile flooring in a delicate blue and gray pattern is elegantly highlighted by walls and paneling in soft blue. The floor can be an ideal place to try out a bolder pattern; keep walls quiet to avoid overwhelming a smaller space.
For a husband who likes modern style and a wife who prefers rooms with a vintage farmhouse look, designers had to mix and match elements. In the master bathroom, patterned cement tiles are the main focal point, jazzing up the sweeter vibe of the shutter-front vanity.
