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.
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.
This is minimalism at its best. What you see here is a portion of a house located in Burgos, Spain. It was a project by Pereda Perez Arquitectos and this living room is actually a very good representation of the entire building. Wood and concrete define the whole house, being used extensively and looking very pure and natural. The spaces are bright and fresh without looking or feeling monotonous.
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.
