Wouldn’t it be cool to live in an old industrial warehouse loft, with an exposed brick wall that still has the original factory signage painted on? Yeah, I think so too! Here’s how to get a bit industrial with your space.
You don’t want to tie down your home to a particular style- and you don’t have to! Curated collections, unexpected colors, and layers of texture- your home is the ultimate extension of your personality. Whether it be streamlined with an edge, fun and bright, or a bit of everything rolled into one, your home is all you!
Take contemporary design and move it up North. Rooms are going to need more layers for added warmth, more touches of nature, and perhaps some muted to brighter colors. But you’ll still want to keep the bright whites and airy feeling of contemporary design.
Pro Tip: Add a bit of a feminine touch with French-inspired pieces, or make it more masculine with some pieces from the industrial style guide.
Don’t let the term “Modern” confuse anyone- retro is definitely your thing! You’re all about angular lines paired with curvilinear shapes, bold graphic art and geometric patterns. Whether you go opulent, simplistic, or space-age, you’re right at home in the early-to-mid 1900s.
