Get That Look!

Hey friends! If you've been a keen watcher of Channel Ten's Offspring like I have then I bet you're constantly swooning over Nina and Patrick's house. In today's blog post I am going to show you how you can replicate their style using reclaimed woods, vintage and retro items and better yet, what you already have!
Now ofcourse it would help if you just happen to live in an old coat hanger factory, but it is certainly not esssential. Make the most of your windows by dressing them with wooden blinds, long draping curtains in whites or greys or better yet, dont dress them at all (if privacy is not an issue for you). Walls should be kept simple with exposed brick work and a colour palette of white or grey for a concreted look, however this should be done on few walls as darker colours will make your rooms look smaller, where as whites will make your rooms bright and refreshing. Since the industrial look is what we are wanting, any rustic crates, boxes, equiptment or furniture you can find or might already have would look fantastic in your new industrial living areas. If you are in desperate need of some key pieces then I have put together a short list of must-haves that can be seen below:
