Blog/Styling A Contemporary Warehouse

interior living room scheme with cracked concrete wall mural and ochre yellow accents

We style a contemporary interior fitting for a factory that once pulsed with productivity. 

 

The juxtaposition of natural and manmade in these inviting spaces was inspired by the terracotta tones of the exposed brickwork and the richly coloured wooden floor. The handmade live-edge furniture and solid vessels with simple shapes demonstrate a quality of craftsmanship. Fitting for a former factory that once pulsed with productivity.
