A softer palette of pale pinks and greys works year-round and in any modern home. Here, the Warehouse Home team have selected five of our favourite interior 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.
(Above) 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.
(Left) Italian surface manufacturer Fiandre creates beautiful porcelain stoneware slabs in pale, neutral colours. Here, in this minimalist bathroom, tone on tone cladding is defined with slimline mirrors and blackened metal hardware.
(Below) A contemporary summer-inspired scheme transforms this warehouse home. Faux marble and concrete complement real brick. A variety of textures, including wood, paper and textiles, together with pastel shades, softens the raw industrial features.
The original features of a warehouse conversion, such as exposed brickwork, can often feel hard and masculine. Bring warmth and soften the look by adding a variety of textured fabrics like linen, tweed and velvet in a palette of greys and pinks.
Create a sweeping statement with a (subtle) feature wall. Here, in this heritage space original timber flooring is elevated with a textured backdrop in spearmint green. Iconic designs and select vintage accessories pull the scheme together.
