The "Industrial" Takeover

I love incorporating some of these unique pieces in design. Even if you have a very clean design, just one of these cool lamps or a few stools, can make a great conversation piece and set your design apart from all others!

Pendant Lighting

I LOVE these pendants!!! It used to be that you could only find these at antique stores...and even then it took some searching! So, I was excited to find these available online...now you can have that "industrial chic" look at the click of a mouse!

Monochrome vs. Color!

Although I love monochrome interiors, I have a "hidden" love for the dark and bold paint colors! I say "hidden" because most people would gasp at the thought of painting their room Battleship Gray. It takes the right client, the right room, and the right light to pull this off...but when done well, its fantastic! Below are some exquisitely-executed "dark" rooms that I just love!

The trick is molding, the more you have the better. Thick door and window casings, as well as crown molding, help set off the dark paint color and make it pop.
