Tacoma Converted Garage // A Vintage Industrial Dining Nook

TACOMA CONVERTED GARAGE

This post is sponsored by Metrie.

I have to say, vintage industrial might just be the perfect match of Garrett and my aesthetics. It’s bold, timeless, and the opposite of fussy. And that’s exactly how this dining nook turned out.

Starting with the Molding

Our design for this space centered around the molding. We wanted to add some interest to the back wall and Metrie’s Option {M} Vintage Industrial line was the perfect solution. This style is all about clean-lines and sharp angles, and creates a smooth, yet rugged, feel. Metrie made picking the profiles easy for us, by curating a line that all goes together. And of course, they had us at vintage industrial, since this space is exactly that!

Adding Texture and Warmth with Furnishings

(pssst: all sources are at the bottom of this post)

For the furnishings, we wanted to bring in pieces that would compliment the vintage industrial molding, cool concrete floors, and white walls. That meant lots of texture and warmth to make this space feel more livable. First was the vintage, Moroccan rug (which sadly belongs to our intern, Bella…sad for us, not for her ;), to add color and a cozier feel. Then came the antique wood table and dresser for a big dose of warmth and age. And the propped art and linen drapes help achieve a layered look.

If you guys have noticed anything about our interiors, there’s always a lot of natural elements (and animal heads…ha!). We love bringing the natural world inside and this makeover was no different: deer antlers, carved, wood candlesticks, metal chairs, natural fibers, and so on.

Garrett put together a video of this weekend transformation. The whole project is compressed to only 3 minutes. Check it out below or through this link.

What I love about this vintage industrial dining nook is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. But it’s still fit for any guest that may arrive. In fact, we had a couple guests arrive the day after we finished the makeover, which you’ll catch at the end of the video.¬†And yes, we ate the cake ūüėČ

Next up for the Tacoma Converted Garage project: an industrial kitchen. It’s going to be a fun one. In the meantime, keep up with us on¬†Instagram,¬†Facebook, and¬†Pinterest.

    It looks phenomenal, but I’m curious why you didn’t continue it onto the wall opposite the windows? Do you have something else planned? I don’t know what the whole space looks like, so I may just be ignoring something obvious. I’m still not sure I’m a moulding panel on the wall person, but each great space I see (like this one!) converts me a little bit more.

    • Thanks Jennifer. We decided to add the picture frame molding only to the back wall so it feels like a feature and not a motif. There’s a lot of original molding elsewhere in the space and we didn’t want to compete with that. Plus this will be a rental so we wanted to keep the design light, if that makes sense.
