Eucalyptus Hardwood

Eucalyptus is the most widely planted and one of the fastest-growing hardwoods, which makes it an environmentally and budget-friendly flooring choice without cutting back on style. In this modern bedroom designed by Troy Beasley, the dark eucalyptus flooring creates a stark contrast against the white and bright yellow furnishings, creating a calm, elegant ambiance.

Cowhide Rug

A cowhide rug brings luxury and softness to any space. They are generally seen in Southwestern-style rooms, but this silver-gray cowhide adds a contemporary look to the bedroom. The artwork, draperies and bedding pick up the silver tones of the rug for an integrated look. Photo Courtesy of Felton

Concrete Flooring

The smooth surface of concrete flooring enhances any design style and emits a polished look. Its stain- and dust-resistance and nontoxicity make it great for families with pets and people with allergies. Pangaea Interior Design carried the sleek, concrete look to the walls and ceiling for a unified look in this contemporary bedroom. Exposed piping gives the space a true loft style, and radiant heated flooring is a simple way to keep your toes warm during winter while saving on your energy bill.
