The industrial style is a hot commodity right now. It is one of the spearheading movements of the early 2000’s and hasn’t lost momentum ever since. Its raw appeal is attractive to those who are leery of the sleekness that comes with the modern contemporary aesthetic. It is raw and organic, but with an edge that articulates as slightly contemporary and that is what sets it apart.
Here are the 6 ways which you can emulate a raw, industrial aesthetic in your homes.
1) Working with bruteness
While a brutalist aesthetic might be too much for a small style interior to carry, you can use hints of it in some of the most obvious parts of your interior. For instance, the interior which showcases a blunt style sofa. its straight laced grey toned style is as blunt as they come, which adds to the other organic parts of this interior.
2) The track light effect
Track lights is in the must-have list in any industrial style interior. They are great for accentuating certain parts of the interior while minimizing the visual effect of the others. As the image shown, the track lights have been masterfully used to highlight the mainstream, industrial aesthetic-makers like the exposed brick wall and artwork.
3) Exposed brick wall
Another must-have for any veritable industrial style interior, the exposed brick wall has become quite a phenomenon. It has a beautiful organic appeal that adds to the rawness of the industrial aesthetic. The interior has used this intervention in its favor and accentuating it with brilliant lighting and accessorization.
4) Distressed wood accents
Wood, in and off itself is quite a brilliant material. When you combine that organic look with the distressed material vie, it can lend a whole other level of stylistic expression to the industrial style aesthetic. This interior shows the way of how the distressed wood application can completely alter the style and visual impact of an entire room so dramatically.
5) Crude material palate
When you’re working with the industrial style aesthetic, the best way to go would be by using crude material applications. Their inherent shabbiness would add to the classiness of the industrial style with the raw vibe.
6) Decorative accent lighting
If you’re not one for track lights then you can definitely use decorative lighting fixtures for accentuation. They will create halo spots inside your interiors that will highlight the shabby chic parts to the fullest. They will also add to the raw appeal of this kind of an aesthetic.
