10 Industrial Farmhouse Interior Design & Decorating Ideas for Your Home

How fun was that inspiring tour of a rustically elegant, modern, lofty, farmhouse we explored the other day!?! Today, we’re turning our attention to industrial farmhouse style, which is a hybrid of edgy warehouse industrial style and casual, country, farmhouse charm. It’s a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll.

There are more than 10 beautiful examples here I hope you’ll deem pinworthy, and frankly, there seems to be a shortage of inspiring examples online from which to choose. When you google or Pinterest search the term “industrial farmhouse decor,” all these very overly-styled, contrived, less-than-charming images and products pop up that make you want to call off the search as soon as possible. I know I sound like a farmhouse snob, but I suspect the folks who are succeeding at the style are also the ones who aren’t taking pics of it to share with the universe (and maybe they’re all Swedish…those Swedes never brag!).

Meg Ryan’s industrial farmhouse chic stands out as a handsome example, and I’ll soon be sharing more pics I found of the uniquely edgy Soho loft she renovated and recently sold. But if you don’t have Meg Ryan’s bank account or Meg-anizing crew, how do you begin to build industrial farmhouse flavor into your home design? It’s a balancing act. Steel windows and doors, salvaged vintage light fixtures and furniture, pieces pulled from a warehouse, etc. are mixed with country warmth and simplicity. Folks who enjoy this style often have a love affair with urban environments, lofty ceilings, and an abundance of natural light. Let’s peek at a few pretty interiors boasting industrial farmhouse style and steal some ideas.

1. Exposed Brick.

It makes all the difference, and if you’re not lucky enough to find it underneath your plaster or drywall, there are wonderful companies who prepare and sell reclaimed brick to tile your walls (the brick is sliced thin in order to tile with it). Alternatively, there are repositionable wallcoverings that can deliver the look, and they seem to work best for areas like the back of a bookshelf or a small wall at the end of a hall rather than as a statement wall.

2. Metal everything.

Chicken wire, metal grates, and other textural metal mesh materials look great in the mix and keep things on the handsome side of lovely.

3. Interior Windows.

They are a wonderful way to define rooms in lofty spaces while maximizing natural light. The pure appeal of the windows’ architecture and geometric interest becomes a design element that won’t fall from favor.

4. Subway Tile.

Subway tile is still hugely popular because the pleasing brick pattern seems to be one that few of us ever tire of. How fortunate are we that subway tile is widely available in mosaics which diminishes the installation woes, time, and labor?

5. Rustic Wood Beams.

Bringing in the warmth of natural wood offsets the cooler aspects of industrial while adding nostalgia and age. It feels so modern to see them combined with concrete floors and sleek furniture, yes?

6. Stainless Steel.

It’s easy to add industrial farmhouse style to a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, stainless work islands, or stainless countertops. Stainless steel cabinets are not a popular choice, yet they can look just right for a commercial style space like the one above.

7. Interesting Industrial Coffee or Cocktail Tables.

There’s just something irresistible about an overscaled, hunky, distressed vintage find turned table! I have a reclaimed wood and steel one in our great room, and I love how indestructible and rugged it is. Pizzas get placed on it, feet get kicked up on it, and there’s no glass to polish…scratches and wear lead us to closer to the look for which we’re going.

Industrial farmhouse style feels natural when ceilings are high and warehouse-like.

9. Black Pendant Lights.

They must be the classic common denominator of industrial farmhouse decor style.

Industrial lights from a salvage shop in Maine illuminate the kitchen’s dining area, which boasts cabinets by Fine Woodwork. Grapefruit fills a porcelain bowl by Valérie Hermans on a plank-top table by Get Back.

    I love farmhouses done right and these are great examples! At first glance of the gorgeous kitchen in #4 above, I’m fairly certain I heard the 3 Tenors in the background. 🙂

      I heard them too, Rhonda! They sounded as harmonious as the designs here! 🙂
