Industrial Storage in Romantic Spaces

It may seem like you need a downtown loft or a modernist glass house to pull off the industrial look, but it's not so. Industrial pieces often have a sturdy vintage charm that allows them to fit in with more traditional decor. If you need proof, click through the images above. Each of them illustrates a different way to incorporate industrial storage into a romantic room...

File cabinets, metal lockers and wire baskets abound in these homes, which range from cottage to country style. In every room, warm fabrics and patterns soften the hard edges of metal, while industrial pieces bring a little bit of grit to spaces that otherwise might seem too girly.
