Jes and Caleb describe their style as ‘Vintage Minimalist’ which is plain to see in the kitchen of their Pennsylvania home.
The space is pared back and simple – and, whilst not devoid of interesting objects on display, it’s free of unnecessary clutter. There’s lots of natural light which bounces off the brilliant white paintwork and Marmoleum flooring. A feature wall in a much darker colour adds interest – the mushroom shade picked up in the flecked flooring pattern and cupboard doors. Both the light and dark combine well with the natural wood of the counter tops, chopping boards and wall clock. It looks like a very comfortable and practical space in which to live.

We love this minimalist industrial kitchen. There’s a wonderful sense of space with a double height ceiling and internal glazing that divides spaces without closing them in. Huge windows let light flood in, the white walls and polished concrete reflect and enhance it.
Open shelves mean everything is easy to hand for cooking and cleaning. Lots more white is introduced through crockery and kitchenware. Softer wood tones balance out the harder industrial materials, herbs and plants naturalise and soften the space. The room works so well – practical and unfussy yet full of interest.
There is a variety of ways, large and small, to introduce an industrial feel into a space. From up-cycled scaffolding poles and boards, rubber flooring, wire baskets, vintage factory pendant shades and task lighting to banks of drawers, pigeon holes and lockers in distressed metal or wood.

We’ve chosen this wonderful Italian modernist mill conversion for this month’s Pick of the Pads.
It’s the home of fashion designer, Barbara Garofalo and is featured in the July 2015 edition of Elle Decoration – it even gets on the cover!
Factory spaces aren’t common in Rome, and this former wool mill provides an amazing structure with which to work.
It’s airy, clean and uncluttered… and we love it!
The colour scheme is largely white with muted, natural shades – and just the odd flash of strong colour which works superbly well – the red kitchen cupboards or striped textile on this bed for example.
The huge floor-to-ceiling windows let sunlight pour in…
…and there’s a distinct vintage industrial feel to the décor with rough hewn wood, wire racks, baskets, hooks and trolleys.
The spaces flow into each other so well and it’s both homely and functional – a difficult balance to achieve. It looks pretty much perfect to us!
