10 Inspiring Rustic Meets Industrial Interior Design Concepts


Rustic meets Industrial.

A very popular up and coming design trend that has deep historical roots and brings design back to nature.

Below is a selection of interior design concepts that we believe embodies this aesthetic

1. Add Green

Interior design is always more appealing when plants and organics are incorporated. Adding plants not only provides a splash of color, but also has numerous health benefits including higher air quality.


2. Hanging Lights

We have a penchant for open living arrangements with high ceilings-- that said, incorporating hanging lights into the space adds both the wow factor and an underlying elegance. 


3. Organic Palatte

Man is ultimately from nature. Choosing an organic palatte rife with colors and textures witnessed in the natural world will add a heightened sense of well-being.


4. Large Windows

Large windows = more light. 


5. Old-World Furnishings

Choose elegant looking old world furnishings that have a focus on function. When designing the space place emphasis on muted neutral colors such as brown, sepia, cream, black, dark red, and dark green. Metallics such as steel and brass will also give the room a masculine feel. Bonus points will be awarded for having a wet bar or a decanter in the space.

6. Rainfall Shower

Prior to the advent of running water, our ancestors bathed in rivers, lakes, streams, and often summer rain. A large open shower with ceiling level rainfall would be an excellent addition to any contemporary bathroom.


7. Exposed Brick

Exposed brick is an excellent addition to any apartment or home. The deep red color makes the space feel warm and cozy. In addition, It is very easy to pair exposed brick with any kind of wood or metallic color schemes so this will fit in easily in an industrial living space.


8. Fresh Air

Without large windows or doors that can be opened, apartments run the risk of having stale air. Open up the windows or consider Juliette balconies to remedy this potential shortfall.


9. Multi-level

Having a multi-tiered living environment will not allow for a variety of interior design options.


10. Books

Books are knowledge, and nothing is more impressive than knowledge.

Living life on the edge, literally


Renowned Greek architects OPA Works have created an innovative house design named 'Casa Brutale'.

OPA referrs to Casa Brutale as "... a geometrical translation of the landscape. It is an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture. It is a chameleonic living space, created to serve its owner and respect the environment. It is the inverted reference to Casa Malaparte, encased and protected by the tender earth that has hosted the human civilization for millennia. It is a complete study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering..."

Simplified, Casa Brutele consists of three concrete slabs driven into the earth and cliffside which provide the home with structure and allow for the buildout of various levels and the rooms within. The crystalline pool, made of reinforced glass, allows an abundance of natural light to enter the residence. The massive glass facade appears run in tandem with the cliffside and provides panoramic views for miles. 

Casa Brutele is a tastefully candid yet aesthetically innovative piece of modern architecture - We hope to see it realized at some point in the near future.

 




Brace yourselves, Manhattanhenge is coming!


 

 

Manhattanhenge 2015 will occur this weekend. For those of you in the know, skip to the bottom of this post for the dates and times. For everyone else, prepare for an incredible and seldom occurring spectacle. 

Manhattanhenge is a term coined by none other than the legendary and prolific scientist and personality, Neil Degrasse Tyson. The term Manhattanhenge pays homage to Stonehenge in the UK and describes a bi-annual phenomenon where the sunset aligns perfectly with Manhattan's grid. Shortly after 8 PM on Friday, May 29th and Saturday, May 30th, the sun will set between the buildings and illuminate every cross street. Traffic will undoubtedly be halted due to swarms of people standing in the middle of the street attempting to capture the perfect instagram shot. 

Wondering where to get the best view of this phenomenon?

Station yourself on the major cross streets -- 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, and 57th -- and travel as far east as you can without losing sight of New Jersey.

 

Half Sun:

Friday, May 29 8:12 P.M. EDT

Monday, July 13 8:21 P.M. EDT

Full Sun:

Saturday, May 30 8:12 P.M. EDT

Sunday, July 12 8:20 P.M. EDT
