Bedroom pin-ups. No…not that kind. Pin-worthy pictures of beautiful bedrooms! But now that we have your attention…
We’re celebrating the start of the new year by launching a new weekly post. In the first of our new “Monday Pinspiration” features, we’re sharing gorgeous bedroom schemes. As with every post on mywarehousehome.com, you can pin each image directly (simply hover on an image that catches your eye). You’ll also find all of the images included here and much more “pinspiration” besides by following us on Pinterest.
Ok? Well then, let’s begin!
Naturally we’re kicking off with the beautiful soft industrial bedroom featuring on the cover of the launch issue of Warehouse Home – it’s been proving very popular!
The original features of a warehouse conversion, such as exposed brickwork, can often feel “hard” and “masculine”. Old and new steel furniture is especially striking in such spaces but can also feel cold. When styling the Warehouse Home bedroom (above), we wanted to prove that industrial chic can have a soft side. A bespoke galvanised steel pipe bed, designed exclusively for Warehouse Home by Inspirit Deco, was the focal point of our warehouse bedroom. And beside it, a vintage industrial bedside cabinet from Mayfly Vintage. But we then used a “masculine and feminine” palette of greys and blush pinks and a variety of textured fabrics (linen, tweed, velvet), to bring warmth to our bedroom and soften the industrial look. Select vintage accessories complemented the warehouse conversion’s heritage features, while flowers and decorative vintage glassware further enhanced the “femininity” of the space.
A display of artworks or favourite photographs adds interest to larger expanses of exposed brick and tones down a hard industrial feel. But you might also choose to really celebrate your home’s original features, rather than concealing any part of them.
Whether or not your home offers pre-existing industrial character, there are plenty of ways that you can inject industrial style. If you have a larger room to play with, you could consider a striking partition in the form of a steel-framed glass wall. Resembling the original Crittal windows common in former industrial buildings and warehouses, these steel framed dividing walls maximise light and create a sense of space while making a big style statement.
Industrial piping shelving seems to be everywhere at the moment – from bars and restaurants to pop-ups and clothes shops and across Pinterest. We like it, and it’s perfect for a warehouse home or loft apartment. But if you want to really up the style stakes, then you could consider a copper interpretation for a slightly more industrial luxe feel.
So you see, using vintage and industrial elements in your bedroom doesn’t have to mean sleeping in a cold, bare colour-vacuum.
So, which of these bedrooms do you find most inviting?
