Interiors Uncovered: Industrial Style


While industrial design style calls to mind a muted palette of white, grey and black, it is not impossible to add some colour to the mix by using some cool-toned blues, greens and purples.


If you love it when form follows function and you want a style that works hard but looks effortless, Industrial Style decor is ideal for you. Key elements of this style include simple furnishings, functional salvaged objects, wood accents, clear or ribbed glass lighting and just about anything metal. This style is most frequently used in rooms where the open spaces are emphasised by high ceilings with exposed beams and air ducts.


It is also worth noting that the industrial and vintage styles work well together, so feel free to add classic vintage pieces to your industrial setting. But remember, you don’t have to live in a repurposed living space to adopt this style, have a look at our mood board and be inspired.
