Industrial Design

Much like the music venues where your favorite emo band might have played, this space is designed to look industrial, with exposed ductwork, a modern light fixture and spiral staircase adding to the urban feel.

Exposed Brick

Cathedral-high ceilings make this dark kitchen feel airy and open. Exposed brick, antler adorned walls and cool graphic patterns on the floor and backsplash are zippy additions that also add depth.

Vintage Stove

An antique black stove draws the eye as a focal point in this neutral kitchen.

Concrete Cool

These gray concrete countertops provide a strong base and visual contrast with the wood floors and open shelving, paying an homage to days spent at your local skateboarding park blasting your favorite emo music.

Emo Gallery Wall

Contrasting dark walls and white wainscoting set the tone in this contemporary dining room. Overhead a multibulb light fixture warmly illuminates the space, while a gallery wall of framed sepia-toned photos adds an emotional touch.

Bar Cart Beauty

Nothing says adulting like an updated bar cart. And nothing celebrates classic style better than the warm metallic sheen of this piece. Another vintage find, it’s perfect for everyday use.

Grown-Up Playroom

A major upgrade to the lowlit basement you may have learned the chords to your favorite Blink-182 song in, this space features a large couch with colorful pillows and blankets separating the game room and bar from the living room area in this finished basement. Pressboard and tin construct a fun and rugged playhouse for the kids in the corner.

Concert T Pillows

Not ready to throw away your favorite concert t-shirts? Feature your favorite ones by turning them into plush pillows.

Music Maker

This home office includes a sitting area and music-inspired artwork and furnishings.

Paint It Black

The black walls of this bedroom are a great way to upgrade a room once covered in band posters and scribbled lyrics to your favorite Fall Out Boy songs.

Keep the Dream Alive

In this writing room, designers blended vintage items, such as the bookcase and end tables, with newer, more modern furniture to give the space a comfortable, inviting feeling perfect for letting inspiration flow. On the wall, several concert posters and an autographed guitar hang prominently.

Gather Round the Fire

A modern concrete fire pit surrounded by patio chairs with neutral cushions offers a place to enjoy the fire with your formerly emo friends.

Private Skate Park

This private ramp creates a fun and unique way to take in the beautiful scenery surrounding this gorgeous hillside yard. The calm and beautiful environment is a perfect stress-free place to keep your skate park skills solid.
