HOW TO ACHIEVE AN INDUSTRIAL INSPIRED INTERIOR

Can I just start with how amazing this loft is. I’m in love with pretty much every single industrial inspired interior element here, from the exposed brick to the untreated wood and rugged tanned leather dining chairs. Although this has a definite masculine feel to it, I could imagine living somewhere like this – especially if it was located in New York. 

I’m a big fan of dark wood flooring, which works well in this space thanks to the blue and white rug breaking the space up between the leather sofa. In terms of styling, I love the candles, inside what look to be old Hendricks bottles – if I can find some black candles I could create something similar. I’m also a little obsessed with these industrial light fittings, making a real statement of this dining space. But most of all, after seeing this kitchen trolley below, I’m now on the hunt for something just as amazing. 

Industrial is such a huge trend in interiors right now and I wanted to showcase some of my favourite finds to help recreate this look in your own home. First of all, we have this amazing walnut and copper light below from UncommonGoods – an online platform for artists and craftsmen to sell their handmade goods (with everything from art work and prints to garden furniture), which has recently started shipping to the UK. I love the authentic industrial feel it has, and I can imagine how great it would look styled on top of this Rose & Grey apothecary cabinet with some old leather bound books. 

Although some of these pieces are slightly more expensive, it really is the quality you pay for. I know this Swoon Editions butchers trolley, for example, is completely made by hand, and this gorgeous breakfast stool from Out & Out Original really does capture the trend perfectly.

However, there are also accessories you can buy which give a hint of industrial to your home without breaking the bank – such as this metal ampersand from George at Home, or this cool bison skull cushion from Rocket St George.

Is the industrial trend something you’d see working in your own space? I definitely think you have to have the right sort of building as a core to work with, but hell if you’ve got some exposed brick then this trend is all yours.
