Industrial designs that make use of concrete may be all the rage in some circles, but the fact is that you will have difficulty finding any beautiful home that does not use wood elements. A popular building material that is just as effective in decorative use, wood brings an automatic warmth and coziness to even a modern space. The four homes featured in this post take a love of wood to another level. Not only are beautiful hardwood floors found throughout, but the natural grain carries up across the walls, into shelving units, cabinetry, and even across ceilings. The resulting style is lovely, bright, and welcoming in each case.
