Morocco has an endless array of design inspiration, from the hand punched brass lanterns to the intricate ceramic tiled interiors and beautiful mother of pearl delicately inlaid wooden jewelry boxes.

Home Trend : Concrete Accents

Concrete is an amazing material to work with, it’s completely customizable both in shape and colour, it has a limitless amount of applications and it is a modern finish. Using concrete in outdoor settings has become extremely popular, and not in the usual sense, now concrete is being used for custom outdoor furniture and decor accents. With the growing popularity of the material, concrete has been used in interior applications for quite some time and the trend seems to have become a staple in modern design.

Concrete can be cast in many shapes and forms and stained in an array of colours. I prefer the natural, raw state of the material with a simple clear finish. How do you like concrete in an interior? Would you add it to your home?

Below we have featured some of our favourite concrete decor accents available at Mountain Home Decor in Whistler, BC. These pieces are a great way to add a touch of industrial chic to your spaces.
