Concrete pavers bore me to death — generally — but these, by Swedish Oldsjo Hutgren Design, are a whole different story.
This little plaza motif is beautiful and exciting and I love that there is no effort to try and make concrete look like old stone or something that you might find in a Venetian Plaza. Am I the only one who is sick of ‘Tuscan’ or other Disneyland styled pavers? – bleh – leave Tuscany, the Cotswolds, Santorini, Dublin or wherever else alone and revel in your own regional style, I say. I really find it annoying when people, things, and design try to be something that they clearly are not.
This seems so beautifully and confidently scandinavian and stylish and I really appreciate it for those qualitites, do you?
