The Color of rainy day skiesConcreteIts both Tough and Sensual

As a child I knew exactly what concrete was.  I knew how it smelled, how it was mixed, how it dried and how it provided for our family.  My father was a mason by trade however, he hated working with concrete, he would have rather worked with natural stone elements than concrete.   I wonder what he would say about the various concrete products that are on the market today.

That’s my dad, front and center, I’m to the left of him……A man all about 5’5″ left this earth at 66 so I don’t have any digital photo’s….He always loved a good party….I’m assuming that is where I get it from…the more the merrier…

Concrete is  such a huge trend in today’s design world…. from walkways to table tops.
