The reasons why we, in general, love marble so much, are numerous and include details such as the fact that marble is very easy to work with and can be milled, machined and tumbled which allows it to have multiple uses. Marble floors are quite common although less popular than marble counters or table tops. Of course, marble floors don’t suit every type of space.
For some, separate rooms still hold their charm. But many homeowners today are taking a sledgehammer to their traditional floor plans so they can enjoy cooking, eating and movie watching all in one space. Decades ago, homes were built with the notion that every room has a distinct function. You cook in a kitchen, so it was a separate room — often with a door. Dining rooms were formal. Living rooms were for entertaining or relaxing, and were set apart from the kitchen.
A similar strategy was used by Isern Associats for this house in Sant Pol de Mar, Spain. However, the contrast between the polished concrete floors and the wood-clad walls is quite subtle. In a way, that means there’s not a lot of warmth given out by the wood yet the texture is still there. A great design strategy for minimalist and Nordic-inspired decors.
