How to use coloured concrete to make your home feel cool, calm and contemporary

Peter Fell’s coloured concrete is cutting-edge. Credited with developing a unique method of adding colours to concrete using iron oxides, Peter Fell is able to supply its concrete in a wide variety of shades — from bright and vibrant to pared back and pastel. Now, it is to this innovative brand that we turn again, seeking concrete in calm, earthy hues that give our interior spaces a more grounded feel. 

Motivated by the amount of time we have spent in our homes over the last few years, a collective desire to bring peace and tranquillity into our spaces has seen a rise in soothing tones like taupe, sand, nude and clay. And considering that Peter Fell offers over 80 colours to choose from, including Neutral, Sandstone, Terracotta, Brown and Stone ranges, tapping into this trend has never been easier. 

Here, we round up some examples of how subtly-coloured concrete can be used effectively to create utterly serene domestic spaces. Trust us, you’ll never look at this material the same way again.
