Turn of the Century Industry Design

It’s FRIDAY, and it’s sunny here in Indiana, which is a small miracle for early March! It has me all sorts of happy and optimistic! 🙂

So remember when I told you about my Wright Brothers inspiration moment? Read about it here.  Well I’ve been working on my designs and it’s shaping Wright up! See what I did there? HAHA I feel like it’s my Wright (there it is again) to be cheesy about that last name because pre marriage days it used to be MY last name! I cannot even tell you how many “I bet you’re always Wright!” jokes I endured over the years! It’s time to pay it forward.

Back to what I was saying… The designs are shaping up and I’ve had a ton of fun stretching myself and designing something that isn’t exactly my style.

Here’s the living room. The Wright Brothers Picture was kind of my jumping off point. I wanted a turn of the century industrial feel mixed with a bit of modern and traditional elements. I imagine the whole house covered in wall panels like this.

Painted white of course! It’s a modern spin on such an age old traditional look.

I tend to like really paired down dining rooms. It’s just the perfect opportunity to let a statement light fixture do all the talking. That’s what I wanted in this room.

I am OBSESSED with these metal bedside chests. They add the perfect amount of “industry” to a place, that otherwise, you want to be soft and cozy. I’m also loving the bedside wall sconces that you can find at Restoration Hardware.

There’s a close up of the gorgeous wall sconces.

For the bathroom I wanted a classic marble subway tile floor to ceiling on the walls, and a slate floor tile in a herringbone pattern. Add black fixtures and shower doors and you have the perfect mix of modern industrial.

When I’m putting together an entire house design, I always like to envision a nursery. That’s just the stage of life I’m in and let’s face it…nurseries are too cute and fun to not include! How much would a little boy enjoy this place? Check out the airplane ride toy from Restoration Hardware Kids!

A house just isn’t complete without an office these days. I feel like I could get some serious work done in this sophisticated space.

And there it is! I honestly love how masculine it turned out. After all, the whole design is paying homage to two great men forging ahead in an industry we previously thought impossible. There is so much girly bohemian going on in design right now. It’s refreshing to design something that doesn’t play to all my 13 year old girl dreams, but instead plays as inspiration to true innovation.
