Tip #8 | Brass | Another metal du jour, polished brass adds gleaming accents to neutrals, greys and earthy tones which can otherwise dominate industrial schemes and warehouse style spaces. The fixtures in this bathroom demonstrate perfectly how brass can add a sense of glamour and "occasion" to any room.

Tip #3 | Vintage | Use vintage, salvaged and junkyard gems to add a unique and personal twist to your space, offset contemporary pieces and enhance the character of an industrial scheme | I love the imaginative use of this old wooden window frame as a clothes rail.

Tip #5 | Texture | It's easy to overlook texture in an interior scheme, but it's one of the best ways to add depth and dimension to a room. When you're working an industrial look, adding a rich mix of textures softens the harder edges.

Tip #6 | Concrete | Concrete is a hot interiors trend this season. Are you lucky enough to live in a loft space with exposed concrete walls and beams? If so, you have the perfect backdrop for achieving an industrial chic scheme. If your home doesn't feature vast expanses of raw concrete, or if frankly you find that far too industrial, then why not bring just small touches of this material into your home with concrete or cement vases and other decorative accessories.

Tip #21 | Lockers | Essential for an industrial scheme, metal lockers (whether vintage or new) are as practical as they are popular | In this rustic/ industrial loft, a locker unit acts as a stylish storage solution in the kitchen/ dining area.

Tip #7 | Copper | Whether aged, beaten or polished to a high shine, this rose-hued metal perfectly complements a "rough luxe" industrial or warehouse style | The Merle large copper ceiling pendant from Barker & Stonehouse was inspired by the shape of factory ceiling pendants and I love the contrast between the bleached wood fixture and glimmering copper shade.

Tip #14 | Wire | Wire continues to be a prevalent interiors trend this season and of course it's ideally suited to an industrial scheme. Wire baskets are a practical and popular way to bring on-trend wire into your home. I love the way the rusty patina has really enhanced the character of these simple vintage wire baskets.

Tip #18 | Desks | Your home office or study can be stylish as well as functional with the addition of a vintage or vintage-style desk lamp, industrial desk and reclaimed furniture and storage | The Jorge workbench desk from Barker & Stonehouse is quirky yet practical, giving a playful nod to the humble and sturdy workbench while incorporating useful spacious drawers.

Tip #10 | Wood | Rustic wood blended with modern touches adds warmth and softens the overall industrial look created with more "heavy duty" materials such as concrete, brick and metal | The Hendricks Wright desk from Barker & Stonehouse is crafted from sustainably harvested black walnut and demolition hardwood. The rustic desktop is supported by a minimalist metal frame.

Tip #4 | Utilitarian | Sturdy, practical, hard-wearing, functional pieces are central to an industrial style interior | I love this simple, utilitarian Cadiz cart bar table from Barker & Stonehouse. Mounted on wheels, it's easy to move around, enabling flexible living. It's the perfect height for use as a kitchen island or breakfast bar.
