Shabby Chic Meets Industrial Style and They Fall in Love

Interior design is one of those areas of a household organization where creativity is highly valued, right next to functionality or authenticity. Very often a seemingly impossible combination turns out to be surprisingly successful, creating a unique setting without compromising any aspect of comfort or practicality. A fine example of one of these unusual combinations certainly is a mixture of industrial and shabby chic style. This is how they met, fell in love and lived happily ever after.

The sequence of action

Just like with any proper date, the introduction is the most frequent icebreaker. Some general information, interests, and a stream of consciousness are usual ways of presenting each of involved personalities. Later on, mutual interests are discovered and the conversation continues in that direction, discovering along the way the spots that deserve more attention and emphasis for the relationship to bloom and be a long lasting one. Let follow this from step one.The sequence of action

Industrial style

Being a true embodiment of masculinity, industrial style is all about being bold and strong and usually associated with large spaces, rigid materials, and what-you-see-is-what-you-get appearance. It is characterized by minimalistic design, straight lines, use of metal, wood and furniture, flooring and accessories materials and bare, unfinished walls. Cold colors prevail, and if it is not mixed with any other style it leaves an impression that it lacks warmth and family feel. In other words, it lacks a feminine side.

Shabby chic

On the other hand, shabby chic is what the majority of people would call a truly feminine design style. When it comes to color choice it is bright and warm colored, prevailingly white with all shades of it. Further characterized by curved lines and soft atmosphere, in general, it is a mixture of sophistication, good old times, and coziness. Comfortable furniture, soft pillows everywhere around it, mirrors and flower arrangements are something that is found in any shabby chic designed spaces. All in all, it is a promising addition to masculine industrial-style in order to create a complete whole.Shabby chic

Opposites attract

Combining the opposing features of industrial and shabby chic style is just like finding a perfect match for any man or women on our planet. Best individual characteristics can be further enhanced with the right amount of complementary ones, taking and emphasizing what is best in both worlds and creating a universal blend that will be welcomed by the majority of users and even some of die-hard fans of both separate design styles.

Bathroom

Bathrooms are best when they are cozy and functional at the same time. Minimalistic approach to industrial style is best embodied by having a bathtub as a centerpiece, coupled only with a vanity, sinks, and toilet seat. Going for curved lines and choosing them in white color will soften the mood. Installing several ornament framed mirrors will enhance the space and provide a traditional appearance and with carefully placed flower arrangements the atmosphere will gain the warmth it lacks otherwise.

Living room

Being the largest rooms in the house and places where families spend most of their time together, living rooms require special attention. This is a great place for incorporating strong materials and dramatic lighting fixtures. For example, metal table and bookshelves will go perfectly with a ceiling light fixture that illuminates the entire diy room decor. Also, this is a perfect spot to bring outdoors in, like exterior wall cladding that blends in well with metal and strong lights. Painting it white as well as adding a leather Victorian style sofa will soften the setting. Wooden framed artwork puts a cherry on top.

Bedroom

Lastly, due to the nature of the room, this is where shabby chic takes the reins. Comfort and rest are all it should be about. A soft bed is the center of attention. Sleigh bed, with its luscious wooden curves or a canopy bed and its straight lined metal construction, would be perfect. Covered with soft linen and coupled with old style night tables and lamps they promise a rejuvenating rest and beautiful overall design.

Exploring all sides of one’s personality is a process that very often brings out gems that lied hidden deep within. The same goes for introducing industrial to a shabby chic style where astounding results can be achieved as long as individual constraints are enriched instead of being strictly followed. Do not be afraid to do either of those.
