Inside BATHING BEAUTIES STRIPE IT NICE SPLASH IN STYLE INDUSTRIAL ATTRACTION FROM FACTORY TO HOME Susan Redman Details: quintessential duckeggBLUE, 497 Darling St, Balmain, 9810 4330 quintessentialduckeggblue.com.au Find elements of industrial chic at quintessential duckeggBLUE in Balmain. DECORATING TREND PAST TO PRESENT Property: Look for exposed brick, wood floors, and stone or concrete features. Buy a converted warehouse or unit in an old factory complex. Furniture: Find a custom dining table built from weathered timbers and salvaged metal; a medicine cabinet in the bathroom, industrial shelving in the office, mobile metal cabinets for bedroom sidetables; a re- enamelled claw bath. Textiles: Choose cushions, curtains and covers made from hessian or linen flour bags, old flags and vintage teatowels Lighting: Look for enamelled metal factory lights, ships lights or hospital fixtures. Display: Hang on walls old school maps and metal signs, an arrangement of cogs and wheels parts, or even framed black and white photographs of factory life. INDUSTRIAL cast-offs and factory-second style is a super hot trend in home decorating and it seems we can't get enough of it. Leanne Carter-Taylor, ow- ner of duckeggBLUE, ex- plains the attraction. ''Industrial decor is ap- preciated for its lack of pretension,'' she says. ''The appeal is in the utilitarian patinas, spare architecture and salvaged objects.'' Ms Carter-Taylor often buys original pieces for her shop in Balmain from Euro- pe. On her overseas trips she scours industrial factor- ies, sheds, farms, markets and out-houses, where she collects ''hardworking'' ob- jects. ''They have prolet- arian qualities about them that celebrate humble ma- terials,'' she says. As for interiors best suit- ed to being decorated in this style, Ms Carter-Taylor says minimalist homes and con- verted factories are perfect. ''But don't cram your space with furniture, be selective and only buy things that make your heart miss a beat,'' she says. • FREE Measure & Quote • 10 Years Guarantee Shop 1 14 Cammeray Road, Cammeray Showroom Open 6 Days www.designarobe.com.au BUILDING LIC NO 204289C 9908 5503 2220426 26/6 WARDROBES *Discounts off R.R.P. on selected ranges only while stocks last.
