Layered with Color and Texture

Color and texture were two of my original design decisions. I knew I wanted to combine a few different textures and colors to make this space layered with interesting pieces. To achieve the modern industrial feel here are a few items I used to create this layered look:

  1. Mix Metallics– I love the idea of mixing metal finishes. To start, I selected a light fixture that incorporated a matte black finish for the cage and a steel frame. I pulled the matte black aesthetic to the mirror, I spray painted the cabinet pulls and towel rack, and used a matte black curtain rod and curtain rings. Don’t be afraid to keep pushing the metalics. I love the subtle hint of the of gold in the geometric sculpture and the high gloss metal utility cart.
  2. Pops of Color A pop of color can draw the eye further into the space and also add a bit of child like whimsy to such a hard industrial feel (this bathroom is for my two young sons) . I was initially drawn to this seafoam/teal-ish color as a bold pop of color. I created a DIY Wood Frame for my kitschy Canvas Wall Art and painted this bold pop of teal. I matched it to the metal utility cart and added a splash of color to my Serena and Lily Dupe Stool. But, why would I stop there? Mustard yellow seemed to be the perfect color to balance it all out.
  3. Wood You Can you have an industrial look and not have wood? An easy way to bring the wood texture into the space was to create a simple and easy DIY Floating Wood Shelf. A more subtle wood grain can be seen in the Board and Batten wall treatment.

A Geometric Twist

Your lines don’t have to be boring! Add an angle here and an angle there to add some visual interest. Here are a few ways to add a geometric twits:

  1. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Choose a fun mirror! The days of rectangular mirrors are over and don’t be afraid to be bold. This Geometric Framed Mirror was the perfect addition for this space and rests perfectly on the floating wood shelf.
  2. Feeling Caged- A light fixture is also a great way to bring a geometric twist to the space. The Caged Light Fixture shows the fragility of the bulbs in a playful manner.
  3. Parallel Lines- Parallel Lines don’t have to be boring when lined up in the right way. Create a great wall treatment, add a full length wall hung shelf, or play around with how your mirror is hung. Can it be placed the look like the mirror is delicately leaning against the wall?

The Soft Touch

An industrial look is typically accomplished with the heavy use of metals, wood tones, and darker colors. This being a kids bathroom I wanted to add some softer textures just to tip the scales on the industrial feel. Here are a few ways that I added a softer touch:

  1. A Blanket Statement- This white and seafoam woven shower curtain tipped its hat to the softer side of things. The tassels give this room a soft edge against some of the harder features in this space.
  2. Fuzz Feet- With little kids taking bubble baths, us moms know how painful a hard floor can be to kneel on. This fuzzy white bath matt is cozy and soft.

A Little Bit of Whimsy

Don’t take yourself too seriously! I am OBSESSED with how this graphic wall art turned out! “Wash Your Butt” is something that I embarrassingly say way too often to my boys, so why not the reminder? Check out my tutorial on how to make a sign of your own.
