It has been a few weeks since I’ve gone through all my bookmarked design sites and pulled interior design ideas and inspiration from them to use on the blog. For the past couple of months, I’ve been posting my own series of entries and relying less and less on what the rest of the interior design blogosphere is doing to generate content on Japanese Trash. And I’m currently working on a new way of focusing my posts around a central idea each week, and I don’t know yet if the concept of Leftovers–something that has been a part of Japanese Trash since the very beginning (the first Leftovers post was on Nov 8, 2010)–will be part of that. So I thought I’d post these latest; who knows, they may be the last.

By now, most of you know how much I love images that show designs using concrete. Here are some of my recent favorites, in all areas of the house.

Outside

Such a warm and inviting outdoor space. Love all the concrete. | japanesetrash.com

One of my favorite outdoor spaces ever, this one uses concrete for the pavers, the retaining wall, the fire pit, and even for those low-slung chairs.

Stairs

These concrete stairs and the terrific railing are awesome. | japanesetrash.com

Such a lot of concrete goodness here with that wall and these stairs. The creative railing is awesome, too.

Bathroom

Bathroom countertop, low wooden shelf, tile work, enclosure--it's all great. | japanesetrash.com

So much to love here, but it’s the simple floating concrete counter that is my favorite element of the space.

Kitchen

Concrete kitchen counters can have so much character. | japanesetrash.com

Concrete kitchen counters can have so much great character, like this large, mottled expanse does.

Exterior

Amazing concrete architecture. | japanesetrash.com

The concrete exterior really suits the architecture, style and setting of this house. Amazing.
