Design: Erstudio

Often characterised by stripped back architecture, exposed pipes and bricks, and distressed finishes, the look takes inspiration from the utilitarian character of warehouses, factories, lofts and industrial structures. While neutral tones are the hallmarks of the style, don’t be afraid to add pops of colour or pair it with other design elements (the Scandi-industrial trend or melded with a contemporary luxe look for instance) to create a unique vibe.

From The Expert

“Keep it real by using real and natural materials like bricks and cement and steel pipes, and textures rather than printed tile- or brick-look wallpaper to achieve a timeless industrial look.”
