Everyone’s talking about Warm Industrial

Warm industrial is a BIG style trend for 2013 and beyond. I keep seeing it pop up on my favourite home blogs like apartment therapy and amazing design for less. I like the look so much I have devoted my home office to it (see photos below!)

The warm industrial home style is created using rich worn leather, rustic wood and burnished metal. It mixes steely grey hard textures with warm and soft deep brown hues. The warm industrial style is great fun to create! You can mix new items with salvaged and second hand pieces to create an authentic look.

WARM INDUSTRIAL STYLE

LOOK 1 – WARM INDUSTRIAL LIVING ROOM

This style shot from Amazing Design for Less uses a fab combo of warm neutral tones and harsh metal textures. The leather chesterfield perfectly compliments the aluminium coffee table and light.

Recreate this look with pieces from VintageVibe; Fill the  Solid Oak Carved Open Bookcase with antique books. Sit reading them on your Antique Leather Chaise lit by a Lexus Tripod Lamp.

LOOK 2 – WARM INDUSTRIAL DINING ROOM

These Tolix chairs match well with a wooden bench to give a French rustic twist to the warm industrial style. The metal wall clock brings the look together.

Find this look at VintageVibe; Team a pair Tolix chairs with this gorgeous pair of cherry wood antique benches. Adorn your wall with our large industrial metal clock.

LOOK 3 – WARM INDUSTRIAL HALL

The striking wooden beams look fantastic with the metal spiral staircase and metal lampshade. Notice the grey concrete floor and exposed brick wall add to this stylish look.

Try hanging our metal lamp shade in your hall like the style shot above or how about hanging it low over your dining table?

Working hard in my warm industrial style office!

My home office mixes old with new; a second hand wallpaper table from Kempton market with a new tripod spotlight lamp from Vintage Vibe and my shiny aluminium Apple iMac. My mousemat made from a green cutting mat and my pen jar from a recycled Marmite jar add to the quirky warehouse look (well, I think so anyway!)
