Timeless interior design style relies on durable and functional furnishings that also present a sense of comfort and longevity.
When well-executed, a timeless interior should have the ability to stand the test of time.
Each room should uphold a delicate balance that is neither overcrowded nor minimal nor bright nor dim.
Take inspiration from these timeless interior design styling tips and master your dream home project.
Stay true to natural materials
In pursuit of timeless interior design style, include furnishings and fixtures made from natural material.
Create a classic foundation with natural elements like timber, stone, linen and rattan.
Try to incorporate natural soft furnishings like linen and wool in your living room and bedrooms for a cosy moment.
Adhere to a soft colour palette
Unlike ephemeral trends, muted colours never go out of style.
We still see beiges, greys, and whites remain a staple within the interior design industry.
However, that’s not to say you should feel restricted in your choice of colour scheme.
Keep your contrasting colours to a minimum (you can always add more) and instead maintain interest with plenty of contrasting layers and textures.
Avoid over-elaborate furnishings
Add a sense of calm to your home with furnishings that don’t take over each room.
Ensure you don't overcrowd your home or confuse the eye with too many focal points.
Avoid cutting corners with poor quality decor
When incorporating timeless interior design ideas into your home, make sure to choose quality over quantity.
The key to a well-executed room is a delicate balance of quality pieces with natural materials.
Timeless design is all about the perfect balance.
