Most homeowners in Singapore like to play it safe when they go for an interior design makeover. They typically choose a standard modern or contemporary style ambiance. But what if you want to go for something bold, edgy, and unique? If that’s where your tastes run, here’s some great inspiration on how to emulate a rugged industrial appeal in your homes. Let’s take a look:
1. Black contrasts brown
The contrast of black vs. brown is a total staple when you’re emulating the rugged loft appeal. If you take a look at this image, you’ll see how you can fashionably merge and contrast these two colours. The charcoal statement wall of this home is gorgeously complemented by the ruggedly distressed brown furniture in various materials and the overall result is totally charming!
2. Blend indoor and outdoor lighting
A seamless connection between indoor and outdoor lighting is another thing that you’ll have to balance when going for a bold rugged industrial loft look. Taking inspiration from this image, you’ll see how the abundance of natural light effused the dark colour scheme with affable lightness. On the other hand, the dim gold artificial lighting ramps up the drama and makes the mood.
3. Featuring colourful accents
Since black and brown can seem too dull, you can spice things up a bit by introducing colourful accents in your rugged industrial loft style spaces. These can be in the form of metal accented accessories, felt boards, colourful cushions, and more. Just a single glance at this image will inspire you in many ways.
4. The loft vibe
Of course, you cannot really emulate the loft vibe without actually going for a loft-style design element. Raised beds with under-study areas are a totally trendy way to do that. They help make the most of a space and deliver great aesthetic and functional value as well. You can use this technique in an open floor plan as well as a closed bedroom.
5. Cozy neutrals
Since not all the things in a rugged industrial loft aesthetic can be either black or brown, you can compensate and balance the whole aesthetic with understated neutral hues. They can be incorporated through the floor, the ceiling, and other large available surfaces in your homes.
