The key to achieving a no-frills industrial chic look is simplicity. Avoid excess furniture and accessories and keep only what's needed. The interest and depth in the space will be found in the mix of textures and patina. Start with a neutral color palette (grey, white, black beige), then layer in some warm wood tones. Look for woods that have some wear and tear. Scratches, knots, and nicks will just add to the authenticity of the look. Be sure to also add plenty of metal. Whether it's metal windows and railings, or metal furniture and lighting, galvanized metals and steel will combine brilliantly with the wood. If you have exposed beams, pipes or brick in your space leave them as is. Industrial chic spaces are often wide, open rooms that feature these elements.
