A college pal and fellow SLP-er is looking for some idears to
spruce his print shop Chux. He mentioned wanting to embrace the raw materials of the space while not spending too much. I found a bunch of inspiring industrial spaces below which do a great job of incorporating pops of color and quirky lighting to contrast the
abundance of grey metal. By simply spray painting an old metal bookshelf red or adding a homey element like a large plant, instantly a grubby shop can look decorated and cohesive.
As for sourcing large scale unique pieces, Hunt & Gather in Minneapolis is a goldmine. They have tons of huge alphabet letters and numbers, fun brightly colored school chairs and other oddities that will add an unexpected element of surprise to an industrial space.
I look forward to walking Fernie over to Chuck's shop to see how it all comes together!
