Old items, which can still be found in your grandparents house, have become very modern again. They are the perfect match for a home, decorated in the warm industrial style. Typical for such a home are peeling or brick walls, which are covered with newspapers, magazines or book pages. Or they can simply be left unpainted.

When it comes to decorating warm industrial home, you can experiment by combining contemporary art with old vintage items. Below you can find a list of the most appropriate things for this purpose and you can gain inspiration about their location in the apartment from the gallery at the end.



The older, the better! It will be lovely, if there are still stamps or labels on it, which remind for former journeys. When the suitcase is retired and becomes a part of the home interior, you can use it as a table, a drawer, a bed for your pet, a shelf and more.
