874 Living Room Concrete Floors Design Photos And Ideas

“I love traveling and recollecting a lot of memories from my journeys,” says Serboli. “I believe that all of this has influenced the design of the apartment.”

“Consciously, I wanted to expose some objects and already knew where to put them before I even had bought the apartment,” he explains. “In an unconscious way, funnily enough, a couple of months after the end of the work, I found a forgotten photo of a trip to Mozambique, of me in a colonial house with small blue round columns, ivory floor and coral-colored doors.”
While Serboli preserved some period elements—namely the bedroom doors and floors—the living room floors could not be fully salvaged, largely due to the removal of several partitions. As such, the new floor is a continuous slab of ivory-colored micro-cement. The cozy living room features a Mags sofa and CAN chair, both by HAY, and a ZigZag stool from Kettal.

The Atrium Townhome by Robitaille Curtis has a 32-foot atrium with a skylight running the full width of the house. The third story features a net “floor” at the top of the atrium that turns the void into a dramatic play surface adjacent to the kid’s bedrooms. The use of a net in this location precludes the need for guardrails and opens the floor plan to unimpeded views to and from the third floor. Riggers from Cirque du Soleil provided and installed the trapeze net.

After discovering their client's love for the ritual of making campfires, the team behind Scott | Edward Architecture created a double-sided, concrete fireplace, which essentially separates the public and private spaces of the home.
The console is from Room and Board. Kevin designed the metal stair railing to feel good under the hand, and local outlet Mission Iron Works did the fabrication. "First, they waxed the cold rolled steel, and then mixed a few metal patina colors (blue, brown, black) to rub in by hand," the couple say. "It’s a labor-intensive process, but the result gives a finish with subtle variation that changes depending on the light. It would have been easier to paint, but we would never have had the same effect."
They created a striking focal point in the space with custom curtains fabricated from 65 yards of block-printed fabric sourced from India. "Making such a big statement with the curtains was both an aesthetic and practical choice," say the couple. "We spent a week in Jaipur touring textile markets to find the right fabric." The curtains are motor-operated, and a black-out liner ensures good sleep in the bedroom upstairs. An additional sheer liner facilitates daytime light and privacy.
Now, crisp white walls and the refinished concrete floor conjure the loft's urban roots. Sleek black kitchen cabinets sync up nicely with the new metal railing.
