These days, warm, darkly-hued interior design schemes with lots of textures are synonymous with the concept of urban-chic and decadent. Out of all the textures used in these spaces, distressed wood and concrete are the most commonly implemented. Further, we’ll look at 5 spaces that make the most of these. Let’s have a look:
1. Darkly decadent
This open floor plan home embraces distressed wood and concrete textures like a glove. The floor complements the walls and together they deliver the best of all worlds to the eye of the beholder. However, it is the contrast of the furniture that actually anchors the whole space beautifully and keeps it from looking repetitive and monotonous.
2. A rich sitting nook
You can enhance the visual and ambient energy of your sitting nook by dressing it up in distressed wood and concrete accents – just like in this image. The texture helps create a cozy aura that is modernized by the sleek furniture, the gorgeous window blinds, and the strategically placed accessories on the bench. It all feels very dramatic and cinematic at once.
3. Break it up with pattern
If you think that the combined effect of distressed wood and concrete might be too much for you, you can always break it up with a bit of pattern like in this image. What’s even better is that the pattern can be customized according to the space and can be done with either grooves or stainless steel strips. The choice is completely yours.
4. Adding sleek textures
The combined aura of distressed wood and concrete might be too much for some, which is why you can always break it up with something sleek. The kitchen interior design in this image is one of the best articulations of this technique you’ll ever find. The matt surfaces of the cabinet laminates, chrome shine of the appliances and the glossy surface of the marble texture contrast the concrete-wood combo with so much impact and panache.
5. Some bright whites
Both distressed wood and concrete usually take up a warmly hued dark aesthetic, which is why you always need a bit of white in the mix to keep things visually dynamic and interesting. This bedroom interior design is a great example of how to manage both spectrums of the achromatic color-texture scheme in a balanced fashion.
