The Industrial French Chic style is a melding of industrial elements paired with the ever-popular French Country style. After selling their previous home in Galston, NSW, our clients engaged I For Style to create a home that successfully blended both styles for their new apartment in Castle Hill and the title Industrial French Chic was born. Having downsized they wanted to upsize in quality with a stunning interior that would reflect who they are, their tastes, their personalities and their new lifestyle. Their lovely new Industrial French Chic apartment encapsulates all of the above with aplomb!!
It was also important to the clients that their new home paid homage in some way to the rural landscape they loved so much surrounding their previous home. By incorporating industrial looking elements into their new apartment such as the rustic milk cans which are so typical of a rural setting, desk and floor lamps etc, we were able to achieve a sense of continuity in their new Industrial French Country Style home.
Wanting to incorporate some the much-loved furniture, homewares, lighting and artwork they had collected over the years was another requirement.
From concept to completion I For Style was responsible for selecting all flooring, paint colours, window furnishings, new items of furniture, homewares, artwork and soft furnishings. All of their existing items were carefully curated and woven into the overall look.
The muted paint colours were chosen to reflect the colours of the landscape. A soft eucalypt colour (Dulux Green Alabaster) was used for most of the walls with a deeper colour (Dulux Desert Pear) from the same range used in the entry/hallway to define this space. The fabrics chosen for the curtains, roman blinds and cushions are a stunning mix of French style with an industrial edge.
