From stylish apartments to spacious town houses, an industrially urban look is an ever-popular choice. Using a mixture of textures and focusing on natural finishes, it sets the perfect tone for a range of spaces. Whether you're creating an inspiring home office or updating a busy family kitchen, you can take elements of the look and tone it up or down to perfectly suit your personal style...
When it comes to accessorising an urban chic look, think effortless, simple design and traditional, rich colours. From storage options to decorative pieces, use natural materials and even upcycle what you already have. You don't have to stick with masculine details, you can add furs and plush textiles, too - the key is to simply keep it looking authentic.
This look really comes alive with its incorporation of raw finishes, from exposed brick walls to beams and piping. So embrace the seemingly unfinished edges as they are all part of the charm.
The best way to add an instant urban edge is through your choice of lighting. Exposed bulbs with intricate filaments are inexpensive, easy to install and can be styled in a range of ways. It's not only their look that incorporates an industrial feel, the tone of light that they give out is also a major contributor. The way they glow in warm golden tones rather than a stale bright white will create a softer atmosphere to complement your mixed material interiors.
If an urban chic look is a little too fuss-free for you, remember you can add detail underfoot. In many of our ranges, design strips and borders can be added to better define your living space and to add sections of interest throughout.
Inspired by weathered steel, Carbon from our Da Vinci range makes for the perfect urban chic underfoot choice. Its deep charcoal base and lighter grey accents emphasise its textural look, helping it to give off a beautifully natural feel.
