Your Ultimate Soft Industrial Style Guide

Soft Industrial Style

Out with cold concrete floors, sharp edged furniture and cold metal features; in with Soft- Industrialism.

Soft Industrialism takes the hard edge off traditional industrial style, establishing a more homely environment.

Soften your look by adding touches of linen, greenery, artwork and flowing fabrics.

You don't have to have an Industrial style home to achieve this look. Add your favourite industrial style furniture against your traditional modern home to get the rustic warmth of Soft industrialism.

A neutral colour palette is always key to an Industrial feel. Try adding earthy browns, navys and whites to the mix for a lessened look.

Baring the chill of polished concrete floors? A perfect way to warm up any interior is a rug. Easy to lay, Cost-effective and stylish, rugs are the perfect winter flooring solution. 

Keep your rug neutral to suit your soft industrial home. Try grey or white to contrast and add highlights to your home.

Try the Terrace Clara Diamond Rug in grey to get the look.

Soft industrialism takes the hard edged elements we associate with industrial looks like concrete and steel and makes them more liveable by softening them with other décor or features such as timber accents, carpeted floors and a palette of soft natural hues. In the bedroom feature elements associated with structural components such as timber beams or supports, graphic patterns like bold stripes and soften with linen bedding in soft greens.

Style Tip
Your structural features don't have to be real - create the look of a soft industrial space by adding timber sections to a wall to create the look of exposed studs.
