Exposed beams and bricks along with textured finishes make a great starting space. By applying a modern aesthetic to an industrial setting you can reinvent any space for the ultimate industrial chic look. Just let your creativity flow; play with an eclectic mix of neutrals, metallics, metals, distressed pieces, and lighting to create your creative vision. Pulling the right elements together can be tough, so here is our guide to pulling off your own industrial chic style.
Metals and Metallics
Although industrial chic is about the rough elements don’t be afraid to use some metallic pieces to add a bit of sparkle. Adding metal finishes to your décor is an amazing way to bring your industrial theme to life. Incorporate different kinds of metal finishes to your décor for extra flair but be careful not to overdo it.
Let the personality of your venue do the talking and stick to neutral tones such as whites, blacks and beiges. Your goal is to create an elegant contrast between your decorative details and your industrial setting.
Let the City Inspire
Adding cityscape motifs into your décor is a great way to instantly create a modern feel while elevating your venue’s style. Use cityscapes in chair signs, a cake topper or table décor, adding culture to your décor.
Light It Up
Adding string lights to your décor will complement the vintage style and provide you with a soft light, perfect for creating a romantic ambiance. Use them to light up the ceremony, hang them over the dance floor, or as a backdrop while you say your “I do’s”. They provide a very elegant touch to your décor.
Distress Your Look
Vintage and Antique décor is a must! Adding distressed accent pieces to coincide with your venue will nicely complete your look. Think vintage inspired pieces such as favors, candle holders or table signs to add a touch of a distressed vibe to your décor.
