It’s not just the combination of materials that makes this living room look stunning. We find the lighting to be exquisite and we absolutely love the bright green sofa and matching ottoman, not to mention all those gorgeous throw pillows. This is a space designed by Karawitz Architecture and, as you can see, it makes the most out of its polished concrete floor.
A different strategy was used by Cornerstone Architects when they designed this residence in Austin, Texas. To give the living room a warm and cozy ambiance while keeping the decor simple, they combined a polished concrete floor with a wood-clad accent wall and neutral-colored furniture and carpeting.
This house from Aarhus, Denmark has a living space that looks very warm and cozy, despite its polished concrete floor and accent wall. It’s because these elements are balanced out by the brown leather upholstery on the L-shaped bench and the pastel-colored patchwork rug.
This living room has a certain beachy vibe about it, especially with the addition of this thicker, whitewashed wood laminate pieces creating the foundation. Laminate flooring can come in larger, plank pieces like the ones seen here. This farmhouse-styled great room is such a great piece of inspiration for family homes.
