Those beautiful houses whose pictures we see on Instagram, are a great source of inspiration for those of us who like decoration . Sometimes designed by decorators or architects, but other times it is the homes of people who want to share their houses through their Instagram accounts. Thinking about this, we have opened this new section of the Blog that we will call ” “, in which we will accompany our readers to visit those houses that their owners decide to show. On this occasion Madelein e Ortega, opens the doors of his house in Holland, a beautiful home with vintage industrial style that we loved.
Madeleine lives in Hengelo, a small town in the Netherlands. His house shows a decoration based on a different version of industrial v intage . With touches of green, fantastic textiles of the most varied origins, new and old objects, collectible and rudimentary objects, and a soft ocher palette in perfect harmony with the rude industrial ‘look’ of clinker, cement in its raw form, in some walls. Everything in perfect harmony.
Industrial style furniture in a cozy kitchen
The kitchen combines elements typical of the industrial style such as huge taps, a the industrial element as a welcoming element .
Each wall of this kitchen speaks a different language. It has been known to combine them to obtain the warmth of the baked clay, the firm gesture of the cut stone tablets that was used as a wall covering on the countertop, and a mustard color paint, to obtain a space that invites you to stay inside and talk .
Old objects in unexpected places
The rough appearance of these cabinets acquires a new role with the modern patina that mixes in a novel way, the old and contemporary in the same space . Making industrial vintage more intimate and personal. Madeleine, its owner, knows how to create the visual contrast of these objects with plants that bring the freshness of green to gray and ocher.
New uses for elements brought from the past, the countryside and the old factories
The owner of this small house in Holland, achieves this feeling of sober masculinity that has the industrial vintage style , now with the soft lathe that give the constant use of plants in all environments, the mixture of gray shades of cement, steel , iron, primitive elements such as straw, wicker, jute or wood, and adding objects and images from the past.

Keys of industrial vintage style
In this house many elements of the decoration remain in their original form. Concrete columns, industrial lamps , steel beams are emphasized rather than disguised. We can see the use of the black color in some walls to add a sense of depth, while maintaining the ceilings in white to provide some light.
Madeleine Ortega includes in the living room her appliances, such as the television, which now becomes part of the dark tones of this style of ambience and industrial remembrance. Thus, the utilitarian is mimicked among other objects of ancient origin, rural or artisan, where the industrial vintage style is presented with unusual gentleness.
In this house, according to its owner and decorator, the key lies in three secrets:
- Do what you like, not what trends indicate. That way what you do will have a personal touch.
- Plants, plants, plants everywhere in your home.
- Do not be afraid to try new things. You can always redo it.
Gray and ocher palette
The total absence of strident colors, the use of this palette of gray tones, softened by objects that recall the industrial past, coexist in harmony with plants and old handmade ceramics. Said by herself, the owner of this house says, ” I love natural materials, but also the rough and practical .” A new way of playing with artisanal and industrial, authentic and old, is very similar to the times in which we live.
