Hey Y’all, I’m finally doing it. I get so many questions about our Loft Space, so today I’m sharing a Fall Tour of the Loft.
Welcome to a tour of our industrial farmhouse style loft, styled with fall decorations.
I don’t share the loft area often, not because I don’t love it, but because it’s the space we relax in. It’s comfy and casual but full of Industrial Farmhouse Style.

I’m joining Blogger’s Best Fall Home Tour, hosted by Kelly at The Tattered Pew. Be sure to check out all the other great Home Tours linked at the end of this post.
If you are joining me from Jen at Tater Tots and Jello, welcome. Didn’t you just love how she styled her bedroom and bathroom for fall?
If you are new to my blog, I’m so glad you stopped by. I love sharing DIY projects, thrifted & vintage decor ideas, entertaining and more.
Today, I’ll share a little bit about why we incorporated Industrial Farmhouse style into our forever home. You can find more about me and The Ponds Farmhouse here.
Why Industrial Farmhouse?
Eclectic style decorating has always been my favorite. I love mixing old and new, vintage and modern, rustic and romantic. I’ve never wanted a showroom style home. I love a collected, found it on the side of the road, but look at it now, style.
When we were planning our forever home, I knew I wanted farmhouse style but I was also drawn to an industrial feel.
My father was a welder who built cattle trailers and worked on farm equipment. However, he could build anything with iron including iron railings for our porch and coffee table bases. I’d snap a photo and he would re-create the look for me.
Although my father wasn’t here to build our staircase railings, I knew that basic, industrial feel was what I wanted.
What Are The Elements of Industrial Farmhouse?
- Unadorned basic metals such as wrought iron
- Barn Doors
- Heavy duty pieces and accessories
- Brick Walls
- Natural or Reclaimed Wood
- Lots of Textures
- Neutral Colors
- Basic Lighting such as vintage commercial lighting.
Loft Industrial Farmhouse Fall Decorations
The loft area has several key elements that apply to Industrial Farmhouse style and today I’m sharing it decorated with simple fall decor.
I’ve already mentioned the wrought iron stair railing and it is one of my favorite design elements in the farmhouse.
The vintage commercial coke sign, a flea market purchase, stands at the top of the staircase.
In addition, the hand made, thrifted desk fits perfectly just outside the powder room door.
Repurposed Industrial Farmhouse Decor
For the bar area, we repurposed two vintage metal hospital carts by removing their original tops and adding them as shelves in between the carts. In order to connect the carts together, we added a wooden top. The top appears to be made from old barn wood using this technique.
In order to add additional storage to the bar area, a vintage nesting box was hung on the wall above the bar.
The small raised shelve was created using industrial pipe from the hardware store and a small piece of wood. It’s perfect for holding bar tools as well as fall decorations.
Here, I added a cute sign from Rodworks Asheville and a few fall birds, dressed and ready for cooler weather.
It seemed appropriate to name the bar area “The Coop” so I added the sign, which is a DIY project.

Industrial Farmhouse Fall Decorations
Because of the rustic industrial feel, I wanted to keep the seasonal decor minimal.
Here, a faux pumpkin is under a glass cloche, along with a fall candle scent from Antique Candle Co. add just a touch of fall to the sofa table.
Keeping the fall decorations to a minimum lets the industrial farmhouse feel shine through.

Relaxing Loft Area – Industrial Farmhouse Fall Decorations
Because the loft area is used primarily for watching TV and relaxing, the furniture is very casual and comfortable.
Several vintage and antique pieces are displayed in the loft and many provide extra storage for out of season decor.
The antique trunk and vintage suit case both provide storage as well as rustic style.
One of my favorite additions is the commercial cart. It was another repurposed piece that husband and I made useable by adding shelving.
It has that heavy duty, industrial feel that screams industrial farmhouse.
Just a few new fall decorations were added this year to the industrial cart. A pumpkin garland and a Hello Fall Sign, also from Rodworks Asheville, were added to previously collected pumpkins.
A trio of vintage crates hold old movies and books. as well as help to hide those pesky, but necessary, electronic wires.
To continue with the industrial farmhouse feel, rustic collections were added and include old seltzer bottles and vintage sifters.
In addition to the glass lamp shade, I like to use glass cloches and glass vases, to keep the view around the loft open.
The amber vase was a thrift store find that I used in the greenhouse last fall. It’s beautiful colors are perfect for the Industrial Farmhouse Fall Decoration Ideas.
This year it’s filled with dried okra stems, faux fall leaves and berries. It’s golden color helps to add some warmth to the loft area.
Industrial Farmhouse Loft View
The window gallery wall, located along the staircase, was created out of necessity. Unfortunately, an air exchange vent, had to be placed right in the focal point on the wall.
You can see how we disguised it and more tips on Brilliant Ways to Hide that Ugly Vent and More.
I couldn’t resist adding the little paper mache pumpkins to the steps. They add just a touch of color to the stairs for Fall.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the tour.
