It will always be a firm favourite with interior fans and designers; the industrial look is really accessible and is great mix with other trends including Mid Century and Scandi and of course you can bring in any paint colours you like.

This year it’s having a resergence in online stores with more and more choices for you to bring the industrial look to your home.

The key materials for this look are brushed metals, concrete, cork and wood. Exposed bulbs instead of using lamp shades, and wire and mess shelving units bring the look together. It’s very simple to achieve and you can go as far as you like with it.

Looking to great a new look for the garden or update a patio? Pushing the trend for outdoor rugs further we love the idea of stencilling patterns or designs directly onto a patio or decking. 

By using stencils (or freehand if very creative) you can produce a unique, look for an outdoor area – choosing from styles including geometric, Moroccan, ethnic, bohemian or midcentury. 

We found some great sites offering tutorials and design ideas of how to achieve these looks including The House Of Wood, Cutting Edge Stencils, and Stencil Search

We’ve spotted this cool industrial luggage rack from Rockett St George, and we love it. Perfect for a hallway or kitchen to hang coats and scarves or pots and utensils. Will even work in a bathroom for storing towels. The options are endless.

The charcoal grey finish will fit in with most interiors and what makes this item even better is that it’s only £55.
