Industrial meets retro in an inter-terrace house

In this house, a strong industrial look is achieved with stripped-back walls, grey floor tiles and a staircase constructed with steel railings and wire mesh. Large windows bring in the sunlight, helping to brighten the interiors.


Although the industrial vibe continues in the kitchen, the mood in this space takes a more retro slant where grey tiles give way to black and white ceramic mosaic tiles that evoke a ‘70s nostalgic charm. A Smeg fridge in colourful stripes completes the retro aesthetic.


Even though the industrial look is maintained in the bathroom with concrete screed walls, the space is also fitted out with modern luxuries and enjoys plenty of natural light. Pebble wash flooring enhances the raw and rustic feel.


In the upstairs living room, exposed electrical trunking, black painted pipes and cement screed walls come together to define the industrial look. Instead of built-in furniture, the atmosphere is kept casual with loose furniture.  A mix of contemporary and mid-century styles lends warmth to the industrial theme.
