When you live in a house with just one single flaw which is not getting enough light, you love it anyway but you can never keep yourself from checking other windows and covet getting an amazing deal of daylight through clay irons. Window fantasizing does not count as cheating and since we can daydream about actors or models with no problem, industrial windows are the Tom Hiddleston of the window world so I’m having my dose of interior porn for sunday if you don’t mind. And in all likelihood you won’t be able to find a house – ehm, loft – with industrial windows so another option is to buy huge industrial mirrors and hang it right across the windows to reflect the light, creating depth and enlarging the room.
Copper probably has always been my favorite metal, hand in hand with brass. It’s industrial but not too rusty, stirring but not too shiny, rich in hue but graceful enough and most of all goes with everything and everywhere. Black, white, grey or any other texture and color; with tiles, wood or exposed walls and can be used as a bookshelf, pot rack, shower head, faucet, lamp, table legs, headboard, clothing rack or well, as drain pipes or simply as a gallery quality wall art. Copper, pipe up (word play)!
Or turquoise? Or aqua? Maybe aquamarine? Maybe even cyan? Throughout my 26,5 years of life I’ve never been able to figure it out - and I’d like to call myself an expert on colors, at least I’m attentive enough to distinguish shades but with this specific shade of blue, I officially suck. As I talked about in one of my previous posts, I’m normally not a fan of any shade of blue but lately it seems like it’s popping out of nowhere and starting to catch my attention. First blue fur coats and now seafoam interiors. I personally prefer the lighter blue scale (like half light blue – half light green) which I call seafoam as opposed to a more loud turquoise, mainly because it reminds me of vintage rusty furniture. No wonder I fell in love with the eroded roofs of historical buildings in Berlin.
