Style File: Vintage Industrial

25 Jan

I’ve taken way too many “find your design style” quizes in my day, and always find the answers to be frustrating, not to mention all over the place!  I firmly believe that you can be drawn to an item or a “look” because it means something special to you, or it fits your mood that day… and not because it falls into your “category”.

Now maybe I say this is because I have no background in interior decorating (see “about“) and some of you are probably thinking… shut up, get to the pretty pictures already!   But I swear, I think I’m on to something!

So rather than put yourself in a box (I’d probably choose an antique packing crate), I’d like to dedicate a few future posts to just *some* of what I think are my own design styles.  If you’re drawn to one in particular… good for you!  If you like elements in all of them…. well join the club, my friend.  And don’t forget to send me some of your design style inspirations!

“Vintage Industrial”

I chose this style first because it combines so many of my favorite home decor elements:

  • Raw material
  • Objects with history
  • Reclaimed & salvaged wood
  • Recycled glass or other materials
  • Wrought Iron and other metals
  • Antique lighting
  • Wire storage
  • Shipping crates

And here are a few Vintage Industrial style pieces that I just LOVE!

And HUUUGE plug for Tony and my wedding venue, Chester’s at Bell Tower Square, which has this style written all over it!  It was love at first sight 🙂
