What if almost everything in your apartment was made out of metals? If warm wooden kitchen cabinets, floors, furniture and other furnishings were cold grey wouldn’t you feel like in a prison? It would definitely differ your home from others but calling it a “sweet home”…Although I have to admit that it looks modern and minimalist and some people might love it.
Peter Kostelov, a designer who created a metal home in Moscow, Russia, uses industrial materials for almost everything.

If this metal interior is too much for you, you can still apply incorporate in some decorations to make your home luxurious as the one in Shanghai, China – Xintiandi Penthouse. Hong Kong architect Joyce Wang “celebrated metal” in this three-story apartment. She got inspiration in three concrete metals, sheet metal, weathered metal and metal cabling.
The curved staircase up to the roof of the penthouse is created out of bent sheet metal and living room’s walls are lined with corten steel.
Metal cabling was woven between the balustrade and the baseline of the apartment’s central staircase and it created screened-off dining area.
