The design of this London apartment, created in industrial style, will definitely suit the taste of those who are not attracted by romanticism and glamour as well as those disliking luxury, striking the eye, and accurate classics. It seems inelegant a little, but at the same time practical and original. Industrial style is perfect for young families and single men. Its main rules are: the absence of unnecessary decor, the minimum of furniture and the maximum of shop floor and garage elements.
To decorate the dwelling in such style it`s not necessary to visit expensive shops. Things sold at rummage sales and car markets would be appropriate in this case. Bicycle chain as well as metal overaged abat-jour would be a perfect match for decoration. Metal tabourets would suite for sitting and if there is a need in lounge furniture, it`s better to choose the one without decorative finish. It is also better to use open shelve stands instead of wardrobes. To reach the top shelves of them it`s extremely necessary to provide metal rung ladder.
The living room, the kitchen and the dining room have found their place at one and the same premises of rectangular section. The living room zone is located at panoramic window, providing industrial district view; this doesn’t hinder the chosen style at all. The wall and ceiling demonstrate coarse concrete finish, and open wiring emphasizes the industrial style, taken as a basis, even more. The minimum of furniture, the absence of decor and total absence of superfluity is organized here.
Ceramic tiles, imitating white brick, are chosen for bathroom decoration. Suspended plumbing fixtures do not encumber small space as well as visually increase the existing surface. Ceiling pinpoint lights lighten the bathroom softly and provide the most comfortable staying in it.
Bedroom greets with coarse finish and grey tones. The dreariness is neutralized by the abundance of light, inflowing from the window. Industrial style is emphasized by the lamps hanging down from the ceiling. There is also a desk here, at which it is possible to work with cases or read a book. The interior scene is blended with some bright spots: chairs, tabourets and a picture on the wall.
