Cut And Polished











The main reason for this post is purely that it is polished concrete porn, and I can't get enough. I specify concrete a lot in my daily job, and just love all of the different aggregates and oxides that are available these days. I know that it isn't the most eco friendly product in the world, but the strength and longevity of the material surely must work in it's favour just a little?!

This pad is a nice example of 'old school' grey, steel float finish, washed, cut and polished. Gorgeous.

Oh I am a sucker for polished concrete too. Lived in a funky little cottage out in the West of Brisbane before we were married.. polished concrete, caught the sun, the floors were always so warm. A-M xx

I love your writing and taste -- it keeps me coming back for more... about concrete, though, you and I are kindred spirits—90% of my house is concrete... all that is not is the carpeting that goes up the stairs. I love it + these examples that you show!
