The industrial look is taking centre stage once again. This time, it’s teaming up with warm neutral paint colours – like most interior trends this year!
When you picture an industrial style kitchen or an industrial style living room, you probably think exposed pipes and brick, lots of metals and large, open plan spaces. While this industrial look is a cool and contemporary choice, it’s easy for rooms decorated in this style to feel cold and stark.
That’s where warm neutral paint colours come in. Embracing these shades will give your space a softer, friendlier edge.
The industrial look usually relies on cooler neutrals like black, white and greys. Yet the decorating world is now embracing warm neutral paint colours, such as browns and nudes. Our Colour of the Year 2021, Brave Ground, is a warm, earthy tone that will soften your surroundings and make your space feel more inviting.
Brave Ground will act as the bedrock for your industrial look. It lets other shades shine and won’t distract from the different elements that make up an industrial style kitchen, industrial style living room or industrial style bedroom.
