But first acquiring housing and agreeing to get married in the fall of 2013, they wanted to make this space in the center of the city of Salt Lake City more comfortable. Fans of industrial design will find many original ideas for creating industrial style in the interior. In accordance with the original production room, the couple added decor in the style of a mechanical workshop, coarse trophy items and unfinished surfaces to create a place with an industrial atmosphere, but at the same time feel like home. Alex and Spencer did everything possible to include household elements, preserving and honoring the industrial style of the space, as can be seen in the photo of their garage-living room-dining room. “The attractiveness of living in the old autogarage and its design from an aesthetic point of view was fun and unusual,” says Spencer. “We will probably never again live in a place like this in the future.” This is our first joint home, which we will always remember. ” Bedroom supports bold appeal, gray wallsfrom slag blocks, concrete floors and open fittings.

Spencer cooked together two chairs from the bushis grandfather and set as a bench in the hallway. The shelf for footwear is several reusable shelves which were left by the previous owner of the room.
