Decorating Ideas: Captains of Industry

Vintage Industrial Styling

I love industrial style that goes ‘all out’ or uses a few ‘wow’ pieces to add some character. These are some of my fave styling ideas:

1. Show your metal. Old raw steel pieces look great and add character to modern spaces; from lockers to old machinery benches and metal pendant lights.

2. Muted tones. Create displays with quirky, pre-loved pieces in similar tones. Think black and white signs, grey metal letters, old glass bottles, tin jugs, wire baskets, apothecary beakers and more.

3. Boxed storage. Industrial pieces, such as old metal, wire or wood packing crates are ideal for storage, both inside and out.

4. Mix old with new. Add a feature piece to your home. Be it a bold industrial-style table in the kitchen, trestle table in the office or a steel cabinet in the bathroom.
