Style Guide {Industrial Style}

May 27, 2014

Industrial Style

Defining your personal style for your home is something I have discussed before.  By finding this style, you can have an easier time when shopping for furnishings, accessories, lighting, & installed items.  It keeps you from straying and ending up with a mismatched space with no flow or congruency.  The first style I will be highlighting in my Style Guide series will be Industrial Style.

This utilitarian design has been holding strong for many years and does not seem to be going away anytime soon.  By stripping away any pretentious covering, wide open spaces with minimal architecture give life to this popular style.  Salvaged materials can be used such as using distressed wood planks as wall covering to give a warm and inviting interior.  Cool gray tones such as in pitted concrete edge up flooring.

Exposed elements like gears and caged wire that would typically be covered in other styles are shown front and center.  Even light bulbs get revealed with the filament glowing Edison bulb.  Worn leather feels right at home next to a chipped paint coffee table.

I personally love this style and it can be introduced in subtle ways into other styles without feeling out of place.

    This industrial style looks so cool…I’m not sure how I’d define mine.

      Thanks, I love it too. There are so many styles out there and some can overlap just like in fashion. I look forward to sharing more styles in the future in my new series. I always have fun working with clients finding their personal interior design style as I am sure you do with your styling services.

I love to read your comments. Please leave me a note! Thanks
