Stoned ImmaculateI happened along pics of someone's back garden a while ago and have since been on the look out for those decorative concrete blocks (apparently also called 'Stone Screens' that appear every now and then.
I guess it's partly why I liked the room dividing book shelves in one of my previous posts.
My grandparents used to have such a wall in their old house (in Australia) and I hope the new owners have kept it. Last time I went looking, I recognised the house from the walls so they are clearly a memorable design feature.
The pictures below were found through a google image search ("decorative concrete blocks"). The best compilation of this style I've seen so far has been at Very Vintage Vegas.
I haven't seen many in England but now that I'm looking for them I hope they'll crop up.
