You may or may not like this type of realistic wallpapers, but I’m sure you can appreciate the imagination and the work that went behind all of these designs. There are plenty of versions to choose from, so even the most pretentious buyer can at least be satisfied. The Concrete Wall patterns look pretty real and they might fit quite well with a few modern designs even if they’re not necessarily going to make it into too many family homes.

If you’re anything like me, and you love both the sea and the mountain, you will definitely like the following piece of work. The following images made my brain dance around with ideas all day. I love what the Sagan Piechota Studio created, and I’d love to live in this house… oh, the shape, the color, the texture, the site … pure art and magic.
Sagan Piechota Architecture have crafted the Otter Cove residence in Carmel, California. Here’s a glimpse on what the house offers.
From the Authors:
Efrain E. Velez,is an architect and designer from Austin, Texas and this is the O-Lithas collection of cast concrete furniture he has created.
I found this on the Contemporist website in furniture. I love concrete as a material for furniture, actually I’ve wanted to start a business with this, but that remained at the stage of concept and sketches. Anyway, this collection is awesome, and if you love modernism, than this has the perfect lines for you. I know, the house in the background is brilliant, and yes, I will give you details about it after the pictures, aight?
You like courtyards, huh? Bet you do, they’re intimate, and have lots of light and atmosphere.
The design we’re talking about has the access to the house through a series of excavated exterior terraces and stairways, across water features and bridges, then down another stairway, finally arriving at a small exterior glass-enclosed courtyard in the center of the residence.
This entry sequence informed the shape of the wood volume as well as the placement and configuration of the concrete retaining walls. Horizontal wood siding assembled with members of alternating depth enhance the notions of texture, shadow and perspective; contrast with the smooth concrete site walls; and ultimately heighten the journey from driveway to center of house.
Bandini uses modern stone sculpture in a variety of shapes to accentuate minimal and modern design washbasins featuring clean lines and eye catching vanity stands. Each of the four models poses a distinctly unique appeal. The Prisma features soft vertical twists and sharp angles, while the Vela resembles a drape blowing in the wind in a free standing pillar design also available in vanity version. The Notte gets design inspiration from an ancient Etruscan Bucchero, drawing on its large circular washbasin and simple yet stylish appearance available in single or double sink models. I think my favorite one is the Ebano with a most modern and sophisticated wash basin made from Rainwood stone that recalls the color and essence of wood.
