Industrial Style Decorating

At first I wasn't too sure about what we refer to as industrial-style decorating. But it has really started to grow on me. I like it coupled with farmhouse decor.

A cute coffee table with wheels.

A dresser with wheels and other industrial touches.

Side tables.

Monograms are still popular. The industrial-style embellishment makes it extra special.

Another side table. A bit different.

Barn doors that slide. A very popular look.

And a room devoted to this style. 

How do you feel about this style of decorating?

  1. I like a few accent pieces and you're right it goes well with farmhouse style.

  2. I ki have a few touches in my home, but of course I wouldn't like an entire room dedicated to any one particular style. Love that pantry!!

  3. I'm not fond of it at all...the coffee table on wheels is kind of cute..the style is fine for others...just not my style.

  4. I love it...the pantry doors are wonderful!

  5. LOVE the horse picture in the last photo. Fabulous!

  6. I like the doors..
    I am not to much into the industrial look.. But enjoyed looking at these. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Like the barn doors.I would use some accent pieces.

  8. I like touches of it, but haven't really incorporated it in my home. I have lots of painted furniture. I love color and I don't like those rooms that look like a black and white photo. I guess that's what they're going for, a vintage look.

  9. Love the upcycling of the industrial look.

  10. I like some industrial touches. I'm just not a frou-frou type person. I've got lots of bright accent colours like you, Brenda,because who can resist their cheerfulness?

    What I like about the industrial look is that the pieces don't need to be pristine. I like to feel comfortable in my house in every single room. I used to have a home with a large formal living and dining room. We entertained often but those rooms were never used. Looked beautiful but not really a true living space for my kids, their friends and my husband's and my friends.

    For us, we got rid of that house and bought a true 'home'. NOT everyone's choice but smaller and casual furniture throughout was perfect for us. By the way, my kids had manners and knew how to enjoy casual furniture without destroying it! 😊

  11. I don't care for it. It reminds me of a look that a single guy in his 20s or 30s would want in his apartment. I've always been into a cozy and comfortable look with neutral walls and a lot of color in my furniture, artwork, window treatments, etc. I guess you could call it cottage style with a bit of English country. I do prefer a more uncluttered look these days, as I no longer have the energy to clean a lot of stuff...


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.

I appreciate each and every one of you!
