The industrial style is renowned for being edgy, raw and unique. It features a shabby chic aura that is extremely unique and has the ability to make an interior design look casual yet artfully designed at the same time. The vintage style, on the other hand, has a retro appeal. It can be used in almost any format, but rarely has it ever been matched with the industrial look. Most people have difficulty reconciling its almost traditional-style visuals with the industrial vibe. However, it can be carried out in a successful way. Further, we’ll look at 5 interiors that feature an industrial style aesthetic with a vintage twist!
1. The tradition with the modern
The traditional side of this interior design has been accomplished through the use of furniture. Most of its vintage appeal comes from the wooden design that is light, but still a little ornamental. In contrast, the industrial style media console looks absolutely charming. The light wooden accents of its design perfectly complement the walnut finishes of the vintage furniture, and it all looks quite stunning when combined.
2. Colors and materials
Creating a fine balance between the color and material scheme of a dichotomous interior design can be especially challenging. This interior features the best of both vintage and traditional aesthetics by contrasting bold colors like blue and red with the dull material scheme. The use of grey color is very dominant but only a few splashes of color are enough to make the whole space seem lively.
3. Emphasizing wood vs. pipes
This dining room interior design looks absolutely gorgeous with its wooden and grey textured material scheme. However, the piping on the ceiling that carried electrical wiring is what adds the industrial to its design, while the wooden accents emphasize the rustic parts. It’s a great combo that looks even greater in execution.
4. Managing the efficient parts
The industrial vintage style can be hard to emulate in an efficient space like a kitchen, but it is not impossible. As you can see, this image shows a kitchen interior design that has been artfully decked in this theme. The brown accents of the floor represent the vintage style, while the grey and chrome used in the cabinets and backsplash are decidedly industrial in aesthetic.
5. Getting creative
This bedroom interior design emulates a largely vintage visual with a small ode to the industrial style. While the wooden texture is decidedly more on the vintage side, it is the application of it that emulates a rustic vibe. The overall look is excellent and carried out smartly.
