5 Of The Best Pastel Industrial Spaces

Posted on Jul 4, 2016 by

A softer palette of pale pinks and greys works year-round and in any modern home. The Warehouse Home team have selected 5 of our favourite spaces that perfectly demonstrate how pale and pretty pastels can be used to soften an industrial setting, offset raw concrete and original factory features to striking effect.

This soft industrial scheme, featuring our favourite String shelving, takes pride of place in Warehouse Home Issue Four. The original industrial elements of the space are complemented by a simple salmon pink and grey palette.

Styled by Heidi Lerkenfeldt, this converted warehouse space has been painted in a bright white, emphasising the natural light streaming in through those original factory windows. Select pastel pink and brass accessories, complete an industrial chic effect.

Authentic factory windows are the wow-factor feature in this conversion. And the use of a charcoal grey and pink scheme, together with graphic elements, offsets the Crittal style windows perfectly. The addition of an upcycled wooden cable reel as an understated coffee table, is a subtle nod to the building’s industrial past.

A clever graphic floor detail defines this industrial space, offsetting the raw concrete walls and bringing a splash of colour.
