Three industrial style interiors with three distinctly different approaches. Interior design number one is a bright and sunny two bed guest house with a concrete and copper coloured living room, and a luxury spa building a breezy holiday vibe. Interior number two is an industrial style home enriched with an upscale classic cosiness and modern features. Then, tour number three is a jaw dropping industrial loft style home that belongs to a musician, and it even incorporates a stage right in the living room. Custom built furniture pieces give the imagination plenty to work with, whilst gritty decor shows just how to set the raw vibe.
In Minsk, Belarus, this 110 square metre guest house includes an open plan lounge-kitchen-diner, two double bedrooms, a luxury sauna, and an outdoor kitchen area. The lounge is a copper toned cosy pad with ultra modern furniture and indoor plants to enliven and brighten. A square coffee table stands at the heart of the arrangement, coloured with red glass vases.
The complex structure of the guesthouse results in steel and wooden beams too beautiful to be hidden, so they are left exposed at the surface in some areas and ceilings. This open aesthetic is carried through into the kitchen design, where open kitchen shelving displays a wine collection, glasses and flatware. The wall of repositional shelving also includes a series of planters for kitchen herbs. Industrial inspired swivel bar stools pull up at an adjacent kitchen island.
Glass vases and a cutting board make a centrepiece on the island.
A large copper pendant shade dangles above a small side table, and contrasts beautifully with teal accents in the room.
The TV wall is wood clad, with a modern media unit and home cinema speakers positioned in front.
In the dining area, a traditionally inspired chandelier gives the space a sense of grandeur and ceremony.
Last but certainly not least, we get to The Cactus Loft. An interior design that was created for a drummer and his wife, who are attracted to the industrial aesthetic. The young couple asked for an atmospheric hangout area that they could enjoy with friends, a bespoke steel kitchen, and a place for a beloved drum set.
The industrial style loft started life as a small two-room apartment. The kitchen and the living room have been combined in order to accommodate drum set staging. The ceiling above the drum podium is lowered for the installation of noise isolation. A supporting column between the kitchen and lounge becomes an outline for the zone.
The sofa is a place for an audience to watch the drummer, or to watch a big screen movie once a projector screen is brought down in front of the kit. The ceiling is decorated with concrete and metal lathing that covers all the wiring for the projector itself, and the lighting. The custom coffee table design, which is also used in the hallway, is made of two separate cubes so that it is multifunctional and transferable as seating or side tables.
Metal is a major component of this interior, maybe most of all in the shining steel fronted kitchen. A tempered glass dining table lets the base cabinets remain the focus of the room. Unique plant stands bring bursts of greenery into the arrangement.
Inside the walk in wardrobe/dressing room, black glass strips are backlit to illuminate the clothing collection.
