When choosing how to decorate your home, it’s important to consider whether your chosen style will go out of fashion in a few months. The last thing you want is to be redecorating every time there’s a new trend on the horizon – it wastes time and money. So, have a look at these easy decor ideas for a timeless home…
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s where you eat, prepare food, and perhaps entertain guests, so redecorating it can be a little impractical. Our style tip for kitchens is to decorate with a neutral colour palette. White interiors create an elegant, classy style whilst proposing a sense of cleanliness and purity.
Bearing in mind that your floors are the most used space in your home, it is important that they are able to take a lot of wear, without having to be replaced every year. Hardwood floors are the answer, they’re not only practical for cleaning purposes but also look great in any room, you could even fashion them with a rug to add colour or a bit of warmth.
To achieve that vintage vibe, all you need is one piece to compliment the room, you do not need a room full of antiques. An old armchair placed in the corner of a room or a vintage dressing table in the bedroom adds sophistication and elegance and gives the room a designer feel.
A marble counter top or a marble coffee table is another timeless material which is an easy way to create a graceful style, the dark lines in the white marble adds an edgy touch to any white room. Whether it is in the bathroom or kitchen etc., it is another way to create that sense of cleanliness.
Tartan has been in fashion for a long time due its association with the Scottish kilts and the autumn season. A tartan patterned sofa or tartan curtain fabric looks great in a light coloured room, fashion with a beige/cream fireplace and walls to really make the tartan the focus of the room.
Fireplaces are not only a great way to source heat throughout the house, but they also make any room, whether a living room, kitchen or bedroom, look very grand, especially if it is a large old styled fireplace. They have been in fashion for a very long time and show no signs of dying out.
A touch of metal is a welcomed style, the metal itself may change for example, copper, brass, gold to silver, there will always be a metallic touch around. Whether it appears on the edges of photo frames or are metal ornaments scattered on the mantelpiece, they really add that extra décor to a room.
