Define Your Design | Industrial

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I'll be feauturing a series of posts that will hopefully help you identify your home decor style. Of course, there is always the eclectic style that takes bits and pieces from everywhere simply because they love them. And love is the secret to a greatly styled home. It doesn't matter where the pieces come from or what category they fall under. All that matters is your decor makes you and your family feel good.

For the first category, I'm stepping outside my comfort zone a little bit. While I think the industrial style is something that can look incredibly chic, it's not one I've overly experimented with. There are a few pieces in my home that would easily fall into this category and I'd love to add more. It was fun searching out pieces to highlight today.
Industrial home decor is pretty much exactly what it sounds. Picture metal accessories, chunky furniture on castors and minimalism at it's finest. There is something so elegant about industrial design. If you find your heart leaning towards this style, here are some pieces I think would be a fabulous addition to your home for Christmas.
Faux Wood Organizer by Orange Door Cottage | This piece would make a great organizer for all of the lovely cards and photos you receive from friends and family. I also would love to see it as a place to keep Christmas books so they are easily accessible to your children throughout the holiday season.
star 9 candleholder from CB2 | A fairly simple accent piece to add a soft glow in the evenings.
Twig Wreath from Save On Crafts | A wreath is a must during the holidays. This wreath is simple and clean so it adds a festive look without being too frilly.

Believe Wall Art by Functional Sculpture | A beautiful statement piece... in more ways than one.

Twig Reindeer from Pottery Barn | A fun, yet chic addition for the holidays.

Vintage Metal Star Ornament by Merrit Hyde | These ornaments are so lovely and we perfect for the tree or as accents anywhere in your home.

Punched Silver Tree Topper (not pictured) from Crate and Barrel | And of course, you have to have a tree topper. This one with it's crisp lines and stately metal look would be the perfect addition.
