It is common for all fashion trends to come and go, but there will always be certain elements that never fade and go out of style.
If you’ve been thinking of redecorating your home, consider giving it a timeless look, something that will stand the test of time and continue to radiate elegance, beauty and serenity in the years to come.
A timeless décor can serve as a perfect background for displaying all the eclectic pieces that you love and here is how you can achieve that in grand style.
Go neutral with colours
It can look truly amazing to play with wall colour or fancy wallpaper, but you can’t really tell how long those patterns and shades will stay pleasing to the eye. Neutral colours never go out of style and remain as constant communicators of freshness and cleanliness.
For a timeless and elegant look, stick to neutrals and solids and achieve beauty and balance with flashy accessories. One trap that many eager homeowners fall into is buying fundamental furniture pieces in a trendy colour of the year. You would do better to go with colours and patterns that will survive passing trends and add layers with decorative pieces such as lamps, art, throws, pillows, bedding, rugs and tableware.
Be detailed, but don’t overcrowd
Give some extra consideration to choosing the details carefully. Pay attention to lighting and elements that can bounce off light, such as gilded mirrors. They are very classic in style and help balance the natural light. Use scented candles to uplift the space and create an atmosphere of warmth and harmony.
Besides colour, fragrances are also very therapeutic and picking different scents such as lavender, jasmine, lemongrass or vanilla, can help soothe the nerves and improve moods. Moreover, if you arrange them tastefully in elegant glass containers on a beautiful shagreen tray, you’ll have a gorgeous decorative piece to go with the style of your home.
Your only concern should be not to overdo it. Timeless look is all about balance, so less is actually more. Be selective in your choice of decorations, colours and furniture and let the overall look show off each piece.
Mix old with new
Timeless décor typically blends the old with the new and it’s one of the best ways to create interest and add beauty to your space.
By mixing pieces from different eras and painting them into a fresh, modern shade, or upholstering a classic piece of furniture into a fabric of intricate pattern, you can create a unique blend and give your own stamp to the design.
Carefully balanced with the contemporary, old, vintage pieces such as armchairs, mirrors, chandeliers and side tables can give any room lots of charm and appeal.
Light it up
Lighting is an extremely important element of any home and the foundation in any design. It doesn’t only light up the space but it has the capacity to make a room seem bigger, brighter and more inviting.
You can use it cleverly to your advantage and highlight your favourite furniture pieces or artwork. By using light to showcase your minimalist design, you move the focus form the light fixture itself and make a statement of the whole space.
Tone down your furniture
Try to stay away from chunky furniture pieces and go with toned down, sleek elements instead, as they can have a much more powerful effect in big rooms.
Also, pay attention to the practical aspect as well as aesthetical. Size, practicality, longevity, style and comfort are all things you should pay careful attention to before investing in any furniture pieces.
Display your favourite photos
Family photos always give the space a note of warmth and love but be careful not to go too eclectic by mixing too many textures, colours and shapes of frames. A classic, timeless look is easily achieved with monochromatic or black and white scheme. Choose a wall and make your gallery, reflecting your family’s unique personality.
