The industrial style has been widely used in residential environments. Its origin goes back to the ’70s when old warehouses became urban residences – we call the loft. Today, even in apartments or houses, it is possible to adopt this type of decoration in different rooms.
The essence must be present in space. Therefore, try to keep the windows wide with the exposed frame, brick walls, metal stairs, the use of concrete and burnt cement, apparent structure, and few divisions in the environment.
The other two styles that can accompany and combine perfectly with the industrial are vintage and rustic – but, it varies according to the personal taste of the resident. The first can warm the room with colorful elements ( pastel tones ) along with natural wood furniture. If you prefer the second option, try to put old and worn furniture and prefer metallic tones that reinforce even more the style.
It is quite usual nowadays to see the rustic industrial style in male environments. So, abuse doors and windows with an older finish! The centerpiece, for example, can be a pallet with casters, a nightstand with chests, exclusive and old pieces to complement the space. Another fundamental point to give more charm to the environment is to mix it with pieces of art. Usually, items are larger to refer to the high ceiling that needs to be valued. If you want to dare a little more, choose graffiti: an urban art that can be done directly on your wall or in the form of pictures.
