Some of us want to revamp our homes once, then switch the accent pieces when our preferences alter. How do you create timeless decor for your home that can simply be added on to?
Let's take a look at some tips on how you can keep your interiors classic.
Consider minimalism, in terms of design and fashion, less is more. A friend of mine and a well known artist have this saying that simplicity is elegance. You can incorporate this saying in your interior decor and clothing as well. Minimalism is about having ample space and using only the necessary decor items and furniture.
Accentuate, accentuate. Instead of buying that purple leather chair or putting up a fuchsia wall instead, why not simply accentuate with small mats, scatter cushions and throws, and a few loose coloured decor items.
Use functional comfortable furniture. The style of the furniture must be minimalist too. Fancy couches with loads of details may be fashionable this year but come next year, it will be considered taboo. Comfort is important too and you want your home to be home where you can unwind and take a the peace.
Quality and durability is king. Beware of buying a large number of lower quality home decor products where only a handful of high-quality pieces will last longer.
The warm colors will make your home feel more inviting. Use warm shades if you have painted your walls with colors other than white or magnolia. The caramels and autumn colours will create a sense of timeless elegance and warmth.
The 50 grey shades. Gray is an eternal colour and will always be so. You can choose any grey or mix of grey decor items to create a room that will stand the test of time. Remember silver is a shade of grey too.
Off the wall. Declutter your walls; a myriad of small pictures on a wall will quickly transform your neat and tidy space into a jumbled art gallery. A single access piece will create a bigger visual effect than a heap of images arranged. If you're looking to display your family photos, invest in a digital frame.
Neat and tidy. Try to keep your additional decorative pieces for your home to the minimum. You can use shelving and storage for decoration. A tidy and neat room is a timeless and classic room.
Lighting the way it should be. Natural lighting is important for MATS a classic style. Make sure that there is plenty of natural light entering the room, or opt for fixtures that give the feel like natural lighting.
Natural inspiration. The best way to accent your interior decor is by a simply adding vase filled with a bouquet of fresh flowers. The flowers will add colour as well as romance into your room when you add fresh flowers.
Utilize what you enjoy. Make use of design elements in your home that are passionate about and can't live without. A classic room is one that has objects that are important to you.
