Our heroes bought a house in Texas (Austin) and decided that industrial interior design is what they need. They immediately started rebuilding: they expanded the kitchen, changed the porch and entrance area, and turned the garage into a large bedroom. What were they inspired by when creating the interior?
Danielle says that functionalism is important first of all in the house, so initially they tried not to add to the interior only decorative elemnts. The house was spacious in the 60s and had a number of advantages in this regard, for example, a vaulted ceiling in the living room. Therefore, our heroes sought to preserve the original atmosphere.
They also wanted the house to be as bright as possible. To do this, they decided to leave the walls white and only in some places added color or texture to them.
Choosing the interior, they were also guided by the rustic style and aesthetics of the ranch. But at the same time, there is modern furniture in the rooms. As a result, the house masterfully combines home comfort with a free layout and minimalism.
Danielle and Austin came up with almost the entire design themselves, but a couple of times they still had to turn to professionals. So, it was the designer who advised them to move the front door – this just increased the kitchen area. “After a few brainstorming sessions and cans of beer, laughing, we finally came to a common solution,” says Danielle.
Another designer told them which textures and materials to choose for finishing and where to buy them. In addition, they received several sketches.
The materials were planned to be natural and natural, they did not have to look as if they were polished. The floor was originally supposed to be concrete, but it no longer fit into the budget, so wood was chosen.
Stainless steel elements and lamps (also in the bathroom) made of oil-polished bronze were added to the kitchen.
As for the range – these are light warm shades and black. The same colors are used in textiles – towels, carpets, bedspreads with southwestern patterns.
Thus, our heroes shared their experience on how, without having too big a budget, you can achieve aesthetics and style.
