5. Totally Neutral
This 3,000-square-foot home is a showcase of cedar, concrete, stucco and glass; the neutral colour palette helps tie the whole look together. See more of this Okanagan home here.

7. Storm Warning
The floors in this 529-square-foot laneway home were stained a deeper grey for a richer look—and to further differentiate them from the colour of Vancouver rainclouds. See more of this quirky laneway home here.
8. Home Base
Concrete is kept outside at this Calgary home, where it acts as a base for the backyard patio. See more of this Rachel Gray-designed dream home here.
