The drawback of concrete floors is that they feel cold and hard underfoot. Instead of seeing that as a disadvantage, Incorporated Architecture & Design took this opportunity to introduce some really cool area rugs into the design of this modern New York home which they completed in 2013.
This chic entryway is filled with bold, wood-laminate flooring and we’re swooning for its overall poshness. It’s versatile when it comes to style but fits right into a modern and traditional space that still feels very homey.
Homes are not always dramatic and dazzling, but details make a huge difference even in the most compact spaces. Take this townhouse as example: part of a luxurious NYC West Village townhouse, this comfortable furnishings and colors create a parlor room where socialization is key. The fireplace and floor to ceiling French windows leading to a terrace that overlooks the garden are massively charming, but all the details shape a elegant yet snug living room.
There’s a ton of ways in which to make concrete floor blend in naturally. When designing this house from Sydney, Tzannes Associates used a combination of strategies. They added wood accent walls and furniture pieces , kept the color palette neutral and gave the open kitchen a large island that’s also made of concrete.
