Rugged individualists. Today’s home décor industry is estimated at $38+ billion a year and is expected to reach $45 billion in sales by 2020. Home decorating shows and new tools such as Pinterest and how-to blogs are thought to be contributing factors to this rapid growth. Inspired consumers are spending more time and money celebrating their home environments and updating their home décor to reflect current trends.
One of the top trends in home decorating is the Rustic-Industrial style. This new interior design style is influenced by vintage trends, which evoke the feel-good emotions associated with harmonizing, nostalgic values and eye-catching attributes. The Rustic-Industrial style is a captivating design route that provides opportunities to unite rural and urban worlds with its gritty, yet sophisticated appeal.
Savvy home décor enthusiasts love this style and are doing their homework. A Pinterest search on Rustic-Industrial style returns more than 350,000+ results. It’s hot and it’s evolving. Living spaces that incorporate exposed brick surfaces combined with leather furniture pieces and recycled materials are dramatic adaptations of this interior design technique. Another simplistic way of achieving the natural meets manufactured theme is to bring into play unfinished wood tables, Edison light bulb fixtures, and vintage black-white photography wall art.
A little imagination in mixing and matching a variety of raw materials can result in some intriguing, innovative concepts. Some of the most popular design elements of this trend include distressed wood, heavy metals, stone or brick, and natural textiles (burlap, hemp, leather). Another essential practice for bringing this warehouse meets ranch house look together involves the use of earth tones and metallic finishes: copper, silver, rubbed bronze.
