One of our all-time favorite home styles is industrial style, as you might already know. The thing we love the most about industrial style is that even if you are not lucky enough to live in an awesome, converted space, you can still make the most of the look. So, today in our weekly signature “Industrial Talks” we will show you how.
1. ADD INDUSTRIAL CHARACTER WITH RUSTIC PIECES
Trawl vintage stores, verge collections, secondhand shops and salvage yards for rustic, worn-out secondhand items that will add character to your home.
2. YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE EXPOSED BRICK, BUT YOU CAN STILL MAKE WAREHOUSE-INSPIRED FEATURE WALLS.
While we may not all be lucky enough to have exposed brick in our homes, there are some great alternatives. There are amazing wallpapers out now that feature bricks, pressed tin, reclaimed timber, such as those from Scandinavian Wallpaper who do lots of awesome industrial-inspired wallpapers.
Giant wall maps or wall murals can also create a gorgeous industrial look.
3. MIX UP YOUR MATERIALS AND TEXTURES.
Mix up your textures, colors, and materials for that old, time-worn look – think reclaimed wood, leather, subway tile, concrete, weathered metal, old crockery and plates, mismatched vintage cutlery out on the counter in jars, etc. The industrial look is a look only limited by your imagination!
4. KEEP TO AN INDUSTRIAL COLOR PALETTE.
A key feature of most industrial-inspired and warehouse homes is a minimal and often very neutral base colour palette, with colour added in the form of accents like artwork, tapware, textiles, rugs and crockery.
5. DON’T BE BORING WITH YOUR STORAGE.
Get creative and skip the boring frosted plastic containers if your storage is out on show – use vintage boxes, old wooden tea boxes, rustic baskets, Mason jars, metal tins and whatever else you can think of.
INDUSTRIAL CHOICE OF THE WEEK
Barry White’s massive talent was embodied in this table lamp that recreates American 50’s retro décor. A charming piece which casts indirect light to its top cover. You can feel the love and beauty just like in Barry’s romantic lyrics.
