Elements of an industrial style include weathered wood, exposed brick, industrial lighting fixtures and concrete. The most important aspect of industrial design is the materials used and products selected to build and decorate the space. To bring an industrial look to your home, consider adding beams, faux brick, concrete countertops, distressed metal and wood and use fabrics like leather, canvas and linen in darker, earthy colors.Large open windows also help bring natural light into the space which can be very beneficial for smaller spaces. As far as lighting goes, floor lamps are trending. Any light fixture with metal finishes fits right into this style.

Layers, textures and patterns are your friend.Slouchy furniture, layered rugs, hanging chairs and color variety are great ways to incorporate bohemian style into your home.
