I was recently asked in an interview what my favourite home style was. It was a tough question to answer as I like to mix and match and add a bit of everything, I feel it makes a space far more interesting. If I did have to nail it down to one it would have to be the Industrial inspired look. I love the vintage, industrial loft vibe of downtown New York. Exposed brick walls, over-sized art, open living space and huge crittall style windows. The good thing about this style is that even if you’re not lucky enough to live in a gorgeous, open plan converted loft, you can still make the most of the look. It is timeless, simple and neutral. You can mix individual Industrial pieces in with any other type of design style, from modern rustic to traditional interiors. Here are different ways to incorporate Industrial style elements into your home.


Industrial lighting is all about exposed bulbs and cables or huge metal pendants and table lamps with vintage filament bulbs. All of which can be easily mixed into any home style. Add them over a dining area, an island, an entryway or a hallway for a subtle industrial element.

Exposed Brick.

To really pull of the Industrial look, you just can’t have enough exposed brick. But before you get the hammer out and start stripping back plaster take a look at these clever wallpaper alternatives.  You don’t need an exposed brick wall to achieve your dreamy lofty interior, you can always fake it and no one will know!

So many different styles of exposed brick wallpaper at Murals Wallpaper.

Metal Furniture.

Think vintage old school lockers ( make sure there’s no lingering smell of teenage socks!) Metal Tolix style chairs, galvanised storage, vintage bar stools, metal trunks, wire shelving. All of these will work well with your existing furniture so don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit.

A Vintage electric fan….Or five! 

Even if the weather never gets hot enough in the UK to require a fan to keep cool… they still look cool!

Reclaimed wood.

For a truly rustic industrial look, upcycle furniture yourself from simple, reclaimed materials like old scaffold boards, cable drums, wooden pallets and apple crates.
