The vintage industrial decor might be the very thing for your home if gears and pipes get you going. Vintage decor is a tribute to times past when gaslights and steam pumps were the household norm and the adventures in aviation were hot on everyone’s mind.
It can be considered a sort of “anti-decorating”, when you consider that conventional and traditional decorating is often about hiding functional structural elements. To get the vintage look, the structures and inner workings of a home need to be plain and visible to achieve this modern design look.
In the end, your living space will be comfy, cozy but with a bare-bones look to it. Following are some key features to get you started on your way to a look you will absolutely love.
Functionality – The vintage industrial look is a celebration of the industrious ingenuity and unparalleled achievement of a steam powered civilization. For this reason, you should think of the functional aspects of your home and how these are displayed. Much of the original electrical wiring of the time was fed through pipes that lined the walls and ceilings, with a bit of design and planning this can be accomplished with cunning appeal.
Concrete Floors and Bare Walls – Nothing speaks of functionality more than exposed brick walls and cold concrete floors. Once these have been splashed with the comfort of area rugs and the charm of wall art and other functional fixtures, the homey appeal of the room will come alive.
