What better place to feature concrete walls than a posh mountain retreat in Aspen’s fanciest?!

Luxury is not always about big brands and contemporary Italian furniture. Luxury is in the details! Like the Lima Residence in Los Angeles by Abramson Teiger Architects.

Designers at E. Cobb Architects have outdone themselves with this luxurious Graham Residence. A consistent grey pattern — rather stylish I must say — broken with warm shades of wood and bold colors beautifully complements the amazing ocean views that are only enhanced by the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Windows which actually define it as a ….glass house. Funny how a strong powerful material like concrete can mix ever so nicely with glass don’t you think?
