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.

I’ve got a new interior design obsession: mini matte black subway tile. Unfortunately, I’m not finding many examples of its use when I scan my resources so there’s not really enough out there to devote a whole post to it yet–calling all designers to start using it more! Until then, I’ve got some images of other kinds of black subway tile to help fill out this post. They’re all good, I just have a thing for the small matte version…

Glam It Up

There's no denying the glam factor that glazed black subway tile can bring to a space. | japanesetrash.com

Make Mine Mini

Miniature matte black subway tile run almost all the way up these walls; I'm obsessed. | japanesetrash.com

We’ve seen matte black, now let’s look at a more miniature solution. This use of the tile–running it almost all the way up the walls–is sooooo nice.

Black It Out

Matte black mini subway tile, black grout... this is the look I'm loving right now. | japanesetrash.com

This is the look that I’m crushing on hard these days: matte black mini subway tile with black grout–it’s impossibly sexy.
