ACHIEVING MINIMALISTIC LUXURY WITH INDUSTRIAL INTERIOR DESIGN
We explore a striking example of New Zealand architecture with the Founder of Sticks+Stones Design, Katie Scott.
This contemporary house harnesses the key features of industrial interior design, with a moody palette embracing black timber, slate tiles, and brushed gunmetal.
Join us as we take a closer look at this impactful project.
The exterior of this modern cabin embraces assertive lines and angles — a reminder of the effortless impact of minimalistic design.
A pitched roof amplifies the sense of space in the open-plan living, maximised by contrasting cabinetry that extends dramatically to the ceiling.
The soaring ceilings also offer ample opportunity for natural light to fill the room, contrasting the moody scheme with an uplifting radiance.
Neutral tones and textures envelop the lounge area, with warm jute, timber, and muted linens creating a cosy environment to entertain or simply inhabit.
Impressive aesthetics are equally matched by function in this industrial house. The dark interior design exudes sophisticated luxury, perfectly balanced with the placement of strip lighting to illuminate its essential features.
A double sink is the multitasker’s convenient companion, making cleaning up far more efficient. The brushed gunmetal finish maintains the home’s sleek appeal, while cohesively melting into the surrounding space.
Underpinned by warm timber and cool grey, the bathrooms skillfully unify contrasting tones to promote an enthralling visual experience.
Hexagonal tiles playfully usher the eyes towards the ceiling to emphasise its height, with a freestanding bath and rain shower accentuating this sense of grandeur. Here, bathing is no longer a mundane daily activity, but a ritual to spark relaxation and renewal.
To prevent the dark palette from overpowering, the bathrooms are softened with delicate floral arrangements while contemporary mirrors joyfully reflect light into each corner of the space.
Stainless steel and pressed concrete are added into the mix of textural features to stimulate the senses.
A myriad of shapes are adopted as defining features of this contemporary house design.
Every aspect of this home has been meticulously designed to evoke an elegant yet restrained theme, bringing together the best elements of contemporary and industrial design.
