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.
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.
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?
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!)
What do you think of the warm industrial style? Will you be trying it out at home? I’d love to hear from you.
