Now THIS PLACE Has Industrial Touches

Most of you know that I love homes made out of
 interesting pre-existing warehouses, churches, mills and factory buildings.
Here is a new one for me.
This is an old train station made into a cottage.
It has really big mechanical thingies in it.
And I think it is 'way cool.'

Now I would have used completely different furnishings
and a completely different kitchen.
But just take a look
and use your own imagination.

I love the gigantic 'thingie' between the dining room and the kitchen.
I would leave it and use fantastic case goods and upholstery.
Seasoned with whimsical antiques.

Think of what fabrics & great area rugs might do.
And lets not leave out both large pieces of art,
 and grouping smaller art would do.

What might you do?
Or would you steer clear of this altogether?

  1. Love the bones but would change the furniture...esp. the couches. They look as comfy as a
    Will come back for better look when I can view it from my computer and not my phone.

  2. I recently saw this and liked it very much, although I did wonder about the location of the machinery, was it hazzardous to getting to the coffee pot, etc...!
    And yes, I would want rugs to warm up the cold feeling.

  3. I'm with you, I would go for it but definitely warm it up a lot. Could be amazing!

  4. what an amazing space... jealosu of those high ceilings!!!

  5. Would move in tomorrow but decorated my way!
    All too modern and cool for me. xoxo

  6. I love everything except the red and white wallpaper. Something about it just feels like it shouldn't be there.



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
