Not everyone who appreciates industrial style is lucky enough to live in a converted industrial building. However, that does not mean that you can’t get the look no matter what kind of home you have.
Jellina Detmar is a Dutch Physiotherapist and blogger who has built up an impressive following on Instagram due to the images she posts of her industrial style home. Over 200k fans follow Jellina’s account as she documents her journey to renovate the property that she lives in with her husband Jan and their two small children.
Based in the Village of Kollum, near the northern coast of the Netherlands, Jellina and her family had always wanted to live on a farm and were lucky enough to find one that met their needs. They embarked on an ambitious renovation project to practically rebuild the farmhouse entirely, taking on most of the work themselves, in an attempt to bring their own taste and style to the property.
When talking about their style, Jellina describes it as “industrial, vintage and urban jungle.” She says they love old and second-hand furniture but like to pair this with modern design. “I love our old workbenches, which we have styled in the living room and in the kitchen. These were also bought second hand,” says Jellina.
The house takes its cue from nature incorporating the earthy tones of brown, along with black, white, grey and lots of green. Jellina has also decorated with lots of natural materials including the wooden chests, leather seating, woven baskets and plants.
Jellina and Jan are currently working on the bathroom and bedrooms, but the kitchen and living room is already finished. The living room features exposed brick walls that the couple created to get the look they desired. Large Crittall style doors divide the space but allow the light to filter through uninhibited. Large wooden beams support roof trusses which are used to hang vintage industrial lights an industrial fan and some vintage gym equipment.
