It’s Christmas time, and that means something different for everyone. For me, it means re-decoration time! Old favourite decorations, mixed in with shiny new ones.

Concrete interiors are simultaneously industrial and beautiful, and as we all know – so hot right now. I believe that the difference is made by the home wares people choose to furnish these often expansive concrete spaces with.

Check out some of my faves below that create a warm, livable space in a concrete environment.
