Happy Monday! It was GORGEOUS here in Connecticut so I’m feeling extra wonderful today 🙂 🙂 🙂 65 degrees, yes please!
Today I have a special guest blogger to share with you! I’ve been coveting the whole industrial look lately, and she’s going to be talking about how we can incorporate the look into our homes! Get ready to meet Jessica, and maybe have a napkin or something nearby to wipe up the drool you’ll have after seeing these pictures….. 🙂
Hi everyone! I’m Jessica, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a website and blog where you can find beautiful lighting fixtures in all shapes and sizes for any room in your house. I’m delighted to be guest posting for Lauren and Pat because every day I get to look for the latest inspiring interior designs, and today I’d like to share a collection of interiors featuring the ruggedly appealing trend of industrial metal accents.
This dining room would be perfectly sweet and shabby chic, but the weathered metal chairs add a certain extra gritty texture that’s eye-catching and unexpected. The neutral color palette and cream accents are a lovely combination, as well.
This spacious, industrial loft is especially cool and contemporary thanks to the factory windows and glass framed dividing wall. I love the collection of vintage school chairs.
Everything about this corner kitchen is charming, but the industrial stove and vent add a polished shine that contrasts beautifully with the antique quality of the pottery and even the stone column.
I love how chic this bathroom is with its clean, simple lines. The windowed shower is a unique touch, and the petite wall sconce gives the room an extra bit of elegance.
Re-purposing slotted angles to make a coffee table is an excellent way to both recycle and give your home an industrial edge.
The distressed metal staircase in this home really gives the home its character. The lounge and rug are made with heavy, durable textiles, matching the utilitarian vibe of the room.
The combination of rustic, woodsy decor and industrial metal accents gives this room a cozy charm. I love decorating with over-sized lamps and clocks.
The self in this bedroom is actually an iron railing that has been recycled. It’s a clever way to give new life to something that would probably be overlooked or destroyed.
Thanks for sharing Jessica! So what do you guys think? I’m personally loving this new trend and have slowly tried to find ways to incorporate some metal into our home! Aaaaaaand I’m pretty sure I need to find an iron railing, like NOW. Be sure to check out Arcadian Lighting for some great finds!
