It’s all about beautiful, sensible, practical and an effortless feel to your living spaces. Timeless home decor should be first of all, comfortable. If you are going to have a piece of furniture that you aim to keep for a number of years, make sure it’s comfortable. Look for well-constructed pieces and wonderfully time-honored fabrics or good leather.
Make sure the styling is not too trendy or dull. A classically beautiful sofa or chair or table is the backbone of a timeless look.
Timeless décor means fabrics that will stand up to years of changing trends. They transcend those changes. Add layers of accent décor like lamps, art, tableware, pillows, bedding, etc. in more updated colors and styles. They can be changed out easily when they get tired or are out of style. Introducing a new color or contemporary style is so easy if you have timeless pieces.
Practice the changing of pillow or throws to reflect the season or mood
Pillows and throws are like jewelry to our soft furnishings. They can be relatively inexpensive and add lots of pop and pizzazz to a timeless look. Here’s where to add just-now colors and patterns. And have fun.
Neutrals are the epitome of timelessness
Neutrals never go out of style. They evoke a clean, fresh feel. A neutral color palette will keep your home furnishing design feeling fresh and up to date no matter what’s new in the decor world. It will be one of the best decor decision you’ll ever make.
Don’t overcrowd a space
Timeless decor respects the space it’s in. Timeless decor looks honour and shows off each piece of furniture beautifully. It may be a little hard for some who love crowding their living rooms. Less is best for timeless décor
Blend old and new
Mixing classic pieces from different eras is an amazing way to bring interest and beauty into your décor.
Edit your collections to just a few
Many of us love to collect something. And if you are a collector I bet you love showing it off. For a timeless look, edit your collection to the “very best” and display them. Or rotate your precious items and display a few at a time. Resist the temptation to show everything you’ve collected. Less is more when it comes to displaying collections within a timeless decor.
Live with what you love
If you are looking for that timeless, classic, amazing look, then choose pieces that you love! It’s your home, your expression, your inner living space… your sanctuary. Make it a reflection of the wonderful you.
Also, understand that achieving a timeless look is a process. Enjoy it!
