Often the style for loft apartments reflecting the once-was look of an old warehouse or factory, industrial is a confident style where everything from the construction to the selected furniture and items are boldly on display. It works great in open plan spaces. It's enjoying a big come back. Think plenty of on-display storage and impactful light fittings!

Exposed pipes/ brickwork. Copper pipework is really trending!
Earth tones and neutrals

This style is for
Those who like DIY, who like rough surfaces and being able to deconstruct things so that they can see how they operate.
