Industrial + French = Style Love

Gorgeous, Edgy, Serene what other words are there to describe such a house? House Beautiful recently featured Amy Neunsinger's Laurel Canyon Home and its one of those houses where I can immediately see myself "at home". Maybe it is the spacious, sun filled rooms or the way the shabby white decor contrasts the hard lines of an exposed ceiling, regardless it is so inviting! She describes the house as Southern France meets industrial, have you ever heard of such a fantastic mix? Take the tour below, I bet you will fall in love too.....


while tearing down tiles in the former bathroom, a rustic concrete wall was exposed and is now the anchor to a lovely dining room!




to DIE for double patio doors - let the light in!


The contrast is extreme with sharp metal & nail head coffee tables, metal framed windows and the softness of a white sofas.






a sliding barn door paired with a metal track combine the rustic and industrial seamlessly


a mirror backed bookcase give the room depth in an unassuming way


Above is the fantastic office space Amy uses for her online invitation & greetings company, Cocodot. If you are a card and invitation lover like me you will want to ck out this site, it is a great way to personalize stationary in a "do it yourself" kind of way!

I love old rustic French walls - a texture that would seem almost impossible to recreate.

And I love mismatched frames and dishes.

And I love natural light.

Great post!

I so wish I had place in my home for all the chairs that I love. These painted white are great. Love the art wall behind those beautiful doors.

The sliding barn door is great. I am using a barn door for the bathroom door in the new room (which I really need to strip and weather like NOW). I would love to put it on a slide like this. hmmm.

Those metal and nailhead coffee tables are the industrial I love. They aren't just sleek, but have texture. I could see them in my living room with my oriental rug and classical motif fireplace. Yes!
