What is your idea of an industrial style home? To me, I think of steal hallway tables and wooden boxes turned into coffee tables or foyer benches. Whatever, it means to you it’s a style that is becoming more and more popular with modern designs. There are no longer rules of sticking to one style within a room. You can find shabby chic with industrial touches or modern sleek styles with added industrial lightings. In this generation anything goes together, you just have to find your own style and what it means to you.
I love the idea of upcycling and creating home decor that was once something else useful in the past. The industrial lights hanging in kitchen and bathrooms all over the country are my absolute favorite look. I love the look of light rooms with darker furniture like this steel hallway console table below. This entire look would go perfectly in my house if I had a bigger hallway. It really gives that rustic vibe but still ties in nicely with the classy decor around it.
I love glass vases that you can display candles and your favorite ornaments in. The lightbulb in these below give it that industrial flare and the candles create a great ambience for a living room coffee table or side table. I even love bringing a little green and putting miniature plants in these. Green, grays, whites, blacks all tie into the industrial theme. Terrariums are really popular too. I think they fit perfectly in with an industrial style home. The copper ones are on my Christmas wish-list. I can’t wait to incorporate them into my home style.
I have so many ideas for my next home. When the kids are all grown up and an industrial style isn’t as breakable to tiny hands and feet. This kitchen below is dreamy to me. I love how plant life spring the shelves to life and your eyes are immediately drawn to the lighting hanging above. It not only provides storage but a display for all your guests to admire. Everything is in reach to while you are cooking away on the stove or washing up.
I love wallpaper that makes a statement on a wall. There are so many options out there to match your theme of your room. Keeping with an industrial style I would choose a lighter color wallpaper but one with geometric patterns like these two above from Graham & Brown Flock Wallpaper range. Industrial furniture is dark and I wouldn’t want to make a room even darker by going with dark wallpaper. These keep that light shining throughout but tie in the patterns with the sharp edges of the industrial furniture.
