I guess you could say that over the last year I have become increasingly fond of the industrial rustic design style. It probably started in our cabin where I wanted to have a rustic theme but incorporate some edgy city elements. This was my way of ensuring that our cabin retreat didn’t become just a man cave hunting getaway!
One example of how I combined the two elements was in our cabin dining area:
I originally wanted some kind of vintage metal pendant light but everything I found was quite expensive. So…I made my own with a vintage kitchen sifter! You can see more of the details at my Homemade Vintage Light Project.
Now I keep incorporating industrial pieces wherever I can in my decorating. We find a lot of cool pieces from antiques stores, flea markets, architectural salvage shops and even metal scrap yards.
Here are some more ideas for you for decorating in an industrial rustic style.
The lights and chairs add a modern industrial edge to the rustic table.
I love the combination of the wood and metal on this coffee table. Even the accessories are a nice mixture of cool metals and warm burlap.
I love all of the features in this kitchen! It is such a unique design but the concept of combining the textures of industrial and rustic is the same.
This bedroom is an interesting combination of industrial and rustic accessories.
The cool lights and sink fixtures are highlighted by the distressed gray wood.
Mantels make such a great showcase for creating a fun design. It’s probably the easiest spot to quickly create an industrial rustic vignette. All you need are a few items and you have a look that becomes the focal point for the whole room…. which is a lot easier than trying to update the entire room.
I hope you have been inspired!
