Over the years of constant change in decor styles and popularity, there are still some interior designs that are going strong and are being used by people of today’s era. While there are quite a few to name, but the kind of job a traditional interior design does for your home can never be achieved by any other decor style. Not only it is one of the most popular and enduring design styles but it is also something that can add so much flair inside your home while celebrating the designs and best highlights of the past era. And when it comes to acing the traditional interior design in your house, all it takes is juxtaposing the traditional elements with modern pieces as it not only makes space appear more sophisticated and elegant but it also feels very current.
If you have a thing for rich design, antique pieces, classic art, and symmetry then following the traditional interior design is possibly the best way to create a space that exudes a timeless elegance, comfort, and never-ending charm.
ColorsWhen it comes to choosing the color, the traditional design style gives you the freedom to be experimental and playful and create a space the way you like. Just make sure that you don’t use too much white and black or any substantial or shocking color as it can overpower the other decor and eclectic accents that are actually working towards bringing a traditionally styled room to life. Be experimental with colors and don’t let those lifeless white walls bring down the appearance of your room. Use some bold and powerful colors that can serve as a foundation for every room. And if you just want to stick to minimalist design then you can team up your eclectic furnishing with just a bunch of colors to make things look more cohesive and perfect to you.
FurnitureTraditional decor style is all about using an eclectic mix of different styles that don’t have to belong to a particular era or design. It is a style that celebrates the past era’s design and elements so you should only stick to the furnishing that has a very strong character and captivating vibes. Look for period pieces and steer clear of any furniture that has no defined period style or follows a simple silhouette with no interesting element to them. And you should also avoid using furniture made of veneer, laminate, or lacquer.
TextilesJust like you had the liberty to experiment with all sorts of colors, you can also be playful with textiles to inject your space with beautiful colors and patterns. From chintz and Laura Ashley conjuring florals to gingham and antique tapestries, the list of the textiles is pretty much exciting and full of life that perfectly exudes the eclectic and traditional vibe we are trying to achieve in the space. Just avoid using geometric shapes and designs in the room as they do nothing to enhance the appearance of the space.
AccessoriesAccessories being one of the most important parts of the design, you wouldn’t want to go wrong with the choices as it adds a final and finishing touch to the space. Just like the furnishing, the accessories also need to be full of character and eye-catching which follows a perfect mix of the mid modern century and classical Chinese motifs but along with that, the placement of these accessories matters the most. And they should never compromise in the quality and the ornate designing.
Window treatment is an ultimate way to give the room a very grown-up and classic feel. Bare windows have nothing to do with the traditional design style which is why you should put a great thought while looking for the window covering and the treatment as they play a major role in tying the whole room together and make it look more elegant. Rich jewel-toned decadent velvet curtains, fascinating Austrian shades, and floor to ceiling drapes in neutral tone are some of the most popular choices for the windows.
