If you are tired of the classic minimalism and you want to decorate your home in a modern and original way, you can choose industrial decorating style. The term “industrial decorating style” mean that the interiors, furnishings and decors, which with its form in the (mostly) contemporary ambiance, can add a retro spirit of the Industrial Revolution. A little rough, but by no means dull,the industrial style is characterized by individual unfinished front wall made out of concrete or masonry, metal lamps and chandeliers hanging from the wire, leather armchairs and sofas, wooden floors.
The main feature of this style is the unfinished look that focuses on combining bare and rough surfaces with a clean and flat finish. First of all, its goal is to act as a showcase for all that is related to industry and manufacturing. This concept is often combined with minimalism, so you should decorate the space without overcrowding the room with furniture and to think carefully how you will store all your stuff properly.
If you do not have an ideal space, and you like this type of decoration, try to select some of the details that you particularly like, and your home will gain unified and fresh look.
Israel-based designers, Ando-Studio, were prompted with the design for this industrial loft out of a desire to create an open and eclectic free space, with a lot of attention paid to detail. They sought to create an authentic loft with life, movement, and continuity. Spaces were dressed with plenty of books, photos, and art and they installed large windows, to allow plenty of natural light inside.
The materials most striking in the loft design are wood, silver metal, glass, and a lot of leathers which are used for the furnishings. Serious and muted colors were used, ranging from tans to dark navy blues. All of this combined, makes for an industrial, but stylish loft for the modern-day creative individual.

Not everyone can find living spaces in a downtown loft or warehouse with concrete floors and exposed brick. Create an illusion of an industrial past by using rough surfaces and materials. The most simple way to show some roughness is to leave some walls or surfaces unfinished. In addition rough metal elements create an industrial atmosphere.
