Wood pieces reflect a design’s ability to scale things back to the basics. The high profile use of the humble material that is wood comes to the forefront in industrial décor, where it seems that the more worn, battered, and/or mismatched the wood, the more celebrated the piece. The effect is an earthy, organic look…that, when paired with other elements of industrial décor (such as metal), becomes modern as well.
And, although the colors themselves can be harsh, the industrial space can actually feel softened with warmer, lighter versions of those colors.
While neutral tones are a key element within industrial interior design, grey is probably the heavy hitter when it comes to color palette backbones. As the natural color of concrete and many metals (think: steel, iron), grey looks both weathered and cool. It also is reminiscent of metallic, which makes it an ideal best-of-both-worlds kind of hue for industrial décor.
Taking the visible architecture and utilitarian components idea a step further, some industrial décor highlights the functional by contrasting them against a differently-toned surface. The effect is a sharp contrast and crisp industrial vibe.
Elements such as metal accents oxidized by time, big shelves and are resurfaced here in a design with urban appeal and with an overall look that’s rough but elegant. The LOFT kitchen only includes the essentials and this makes it really practical and space-efficient.
