Bedroom Pinspiration

Posted on Jan 5, 2015 by

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, 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.

Industrial chic warehouse home / loft apartment bedroom with exposed brickwork, iron bed and vintage details

The iron bed frame and simple striped bed linen could make this bedroom feel more “masculine”, particularly against the exposed brickwork. However, vintage pieces and fresh flowers add interest and soften the look, while a collection of prints and pictures breaks up the large exposed brick wall.

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.

Loft apartment with grey brick walls, concrete and masculine decor

The exposed grey brick wall and concrete floor in this loft apartment are the perfect backdrop for bold “masculine” decor, with dark tartan bedding and heavy solid wood furniture. The original steel beam serves to frame the area around the head of the bed and focus the eye on a single framed picture.

Industrial chic loft apartment with hanging pallet wood bed and luxury features

In this very spacious loft apartment the owners have made the most of the incredible high ceilings and created a striking focal point with a hanging pallet-based bed. A stupendously large double walk-in shower and chandelier-inspired bedside lighting contrast beautifully with the upcycled rustic appearance of this feature bed and the expansive bare brick wall beyond.

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.

The owners of this spacious and light-filled loft apartment have achieved an airy open-plan effect with the use of a steel-framed glass wall and door into the master bedroom. Heritage rugs and a collection of artwork tie together a smart orange and grey colour scheme. I love that soft grey feature wall.

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.

In this smart bedroom a compact space has been maximised with a bespoke copper piping storage and shelving unit constructed around the bed head. Industrial style clamp lamps, vintage accessories and a bold red bed with crisp white linen combine to create an almost theatrical space.

So you see, using vintage and industrial elements in your bedroom doesn’t have to mean sleeping in a cold, bare colour-vacuum.

I love this elegant blue and grey bedroom. Particular highlights are the blue ticking and linen sheets, the vintage tea crate used as a bedside table and the bare bulb lighting. Simple, understated, chic.

Indigo blue and cream French rustic / industrial chic bedroom

This beautiful indigo blue and cream scheme adds a strong sense of “French rustic” to “industrial chic”. Heavily distressed vintage furniture contrasts beautifully with the luxurious indigos of the bedlinen and the bedside flowers. The paintwork on the wall resembles old plasterwork, complementing the vintage furniture.
