Elle Decoration UK suggest using Clayworks Clay Plasters to create a textured concrete look in their inspirational feature about Dark Walls. (Bathrooms Supplement Oct 2017)

‘There’s no reason to be afraid of the dark’ they say, and using Clay Plasters rather than concrete will definitely soften the aesthetic as well as the acoustics. For bathrooms, clay plasters are ideal, as they will help to absorb moisture (although they are not suitable for showers and wet rooms).

Dark Walls are having a very fashionable moment and using Clay Plasters to create them similarly so; the earthen tones, breadth of textural opportunities and breathability of clay plasters create drama while tempering glare. Japanese Clay Plasters by Clayworks have been used extensively in the RIBA 2017 winning development Walmer Yard.

A few other recent projects featuring Clayworks demonstrate the endless possibilities of these dark ages.
