Living room with industrial inspiration

What is Industrial design style?


It is every so often seen in lofts or other reclaimed industrial spaces. Think high, bare ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, open spaces, exposed building materials like structural beam, brick, metal air ducts, and concrete or weathered wood floors. Since these spaces characteristically have plentiful texture in the building elements, a neutral colour palette is normally used.

If you don’t have the architectural features, and constructional changes will be too major for you, and you love this style, it can be mimicked to a certain point.

Regarding the inspiration board: this room will have a contemporary and masculine touch, with mainly an industrial feel.


With matt black metal contrasting gleaming warm gold, smooth leather opposing softer textures, and cool grey and teal-grey-blue being complemented by warm tan, it gives a sense of drama, sophistication and weightiness, while having warmth and authenticity. Decorating items need to be kept to a minimum and must make sense.


Rough opposing smooth, plain versus patterned, warm against cool, matt versus shiny. These factors ensure interesting contrast. Nothing boring here. It’s not confusing though, a rhythm is created by repetition of colours and lines.

In my opinion, we can always look for inspiration, but we need to keep true to ourselves. Everyone is unique, and so are our needs, desires and consequently our style.



I truly hope this inspired you!
