It’s the beginning of a new month, and you know what that means!! A brand new monthly moodboard. I’ve been loving an unexpected material this season and I’m pretty sure it’s here to stay all summer long: concrete and cement. Click through for my best finds and for inspiration on how to sprinkle this throughout your home and outdoor living space this year…
01: cement and wood pendant // 02: concrete bookends // 03: concrete bench with cushion // 04: large cement planter // 05: cement outdoor cocktail table // 06: concrete skate art // 07: cement tissue holder // 08: concrete mail tray // 09: cement lidded jar // 10: concrete side table // 11: cement table lamp // 12: cement vanity tray
I think cement and concrete looks best paired with warmer tones and inviting organic materials… think natural wood, warm leather, or soft linen. It’s all about juxtaposing this hard material alongside something more textural and inviting. From the roundup, I just put that beautiful outdoor cocktail table (#5) in a client’s space, I’m also really loving the bench (#3), the bookends (#2), and the bathroom canisters (#7 and #9).
You can also use concrete in a more feminine way- like the image above. Alongside white and brass materials, it looks pretty chic. That just goes to show cement doesn’t always come off as modern or sterile. There are plenty of ways to implement this into a variety of styles!
Who has a cement or concrete piece in their house? If we ever add-on, I’m seriously contemplating a concrete bathroom or shower floor! I’d love to hear your favorites from the collage to see if we’re on the same page. Happy Friday, guys!! xo
