How to Create a Classic Timeless Home Decor Design
Some of us want to redecorate our homes only once and just change the accent pieces as our tastes change. But how can you achieve timeless home décor that cans simply be added on to?
Let's take a look at some tips on how to keep your decor timeless.
Think minimalistic, in the sense of design and fashion less is always more. A good friend and well known artist have this saying that simplicity is elegance. You can incorporate this saying in your home décor and wardrobe alike. Minimalism means ample spaces and using only the necessary decor items and furniture.
Accentuate, accentuate. Instead of going out and buying that purple leather chair or painting your walls fuchsia, why not just accentuate with small mats, scatter cushions throws and a few loose coloured decor items.
Use functional comfortable furniture. The style of the furniture should be minimalistic too. Fancy couches with loads of detail may be in season this year but come next it will be taboo. Comfort is important too, you want your house to be home where you can relax and enjoy a peaceful rest.
Quality and durability is king. Avoid purchasing loads of inferior quality home décor products where a few quality pieces will appear better and last longer.
Warm it up. Use warm shades if you have to paint your walls in colours other than white and magnolia; caramels and other autumn colours will create a sense of warmth and timeless elegance.
50 shades of grey. Grey is a timeless colour and will remain so. You can use any grey or a combination of grey home décor 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 turn your well organised classic space into a jumbled art gallery. A single access piece will create a bigger visual effect than a heap of pictures clustered together. If you do wish to show off your family pictures invest in a digital photo frame.
Neat and tidy. Try to keep your additional home décor pieces to a minimum. You can use shelving and storage as decoration pieces. A neat and tidy room is a classic and timeless room.
Light the way. Natural lighting is important in a classic design. Ensure that you have plenty of natural light entering the room or choose lighting fixtures that will create the feel of natural light.
Natural inspiration. The best way to accent your home décor design is by a simply adding a vase with a bunch of cut flowers. You will automatically add colour and romance to your space when you add fresh flowers.
Use what you love. Use design pieces in your home that you love and cannot live without. A classic space is a space that contains items that are special to you.
