One of the greatest attributes to fantastic design lay in the ability for it to last through the ages of trends.
Great design is evidenced by its longevity and creating a space that will stand the test of time comes at a balance of incorporating trendy accessories with timeless structural features. Through the incorporation of trendy elements through accent pieces and accessories lends itself to being more easily replaceable when new styles come around.
Following the latest trends in your home is fun and exciting and allows your home to create a dynamic space to play around with textures, colours and statement pieces. However, it is important to form the foundation of a space that will last through the trends and the years. Here are a few suggestions to consider while creating your home.
Aspects to Consider for a Timeless Design:
Choose timeless colours
Remaining within the range of neutral tones will prolong the lifespan of your room design. Neutral tones such as off-whites, creams, blues and beiges are a great way to add slight colour and deviations from the standard whites without being the statement piece of the room. Having earthy colours will help to neutralise the design and create the opportunity to play around with trendy colours through throws, scatter cushions and layered details that can be changed more easily through dynamic colour trends.
Create a focal point
Having a piece to draw the eye to a specific item will make a visually intriguing space. This can be achieved through pieces such as a statement coffee table, art or sculptural pieces.
Pair back the rest of the room by clearing away clutter and unnecessary items. Integrate technology items where you can hide cables and mess. This will make the statement piece of the room stand out and make the room feel like a cohesive room.
Use quality and natural materials
Creating a timeless design requires having pieces that last. Choosing high quality furniture pieces and permanent fixtures will ensure the longevity of the room’s design elements. Through the use of natural materials such as stone, linens and glass your space will have textural elements that are not only visually intriguing but align with the way that we interact with design.
Mix traditional and modern
By mixing more contemporary elements with traditional design features it will give a great sense of existing timelessness to your space. The placement of both design styles highlights the contemporary features of each while giving homage to the traditional elements.
