When it comes to bringing colour into an arresting industrial space of lofty proportions it can be a difficult task, after all you don’t want to deter from the striking beauty of the building’s physical features. It’s in these spaces that colour can be used for dual purpose – to gently soften the harder industrial textures while highlighting the tones and shapes of the buildings architecture. You can see how colour has been used to this end here through a few clever tricks: the tufted rug hung on the wall reflects the cool grey concrete floor but still ties into the black wall behind it thanks to darker threads woven through it. Meanwhile, the textile accessories and pillows on the sofas are predominately teal and navy colours, which are a softer take on the black walls yet don’t stray too far from the palette. This prevents the coloured accessories from becoming the focus of the space, instead they simply complement the rich and dramatic black walls that emphasise the building’s form. The lavender rug is just the dash of femininity the spaced needed to throw the look off – if all the colours had been deep, moody and industrial then the scheme would risk looking forced or twee, but this delicate introduction of hue breaks the flow nicely. What do you like about this space, folks?
