In recent weeks, I’ve been obsessing over the use of concrete in homewares and how damn well it works in lighting, planters and even furniture.
The concrete look, when combined with other current trends such as naturals woods, neon, metallics and the urban garden-style obsession with plants, cacti, succulents, is a visually effective contrast.

While I certainly don’t think I could quite pull off the ‘industrial’ sort of vibe in our current flat, or perhaps ever, I may still treat myself to a couple of concrete planters. For those on a budget there are options out there for DIY concrete furniture ‘hacks’ including lights, planters and even stools – however I may avoid making too much of a mess and just keep browsing Pinterest.
