Give raw concrete a colour update

Jun 22, 2017

The honesty of raw, unpolished concrete stole our hearts and invaded our homes a decade ago. Now that look has been reinvented.

GET THE LOOK

Raw concrete is due for an update and what better way to do that than with the addition of one of the hottest colours of the moment: terracotta.

We rang the changes and updated this wall by washing it in a coat of Plascon Terra Nova (R6-D1-2), diluted with water to retain the cementitious texture beneath.

The final result is matt and organic, much like red clay. Best of all, this brand-new look only took one litre of paint to effect.
