5 tips to achieve timeless interior design

When it comes to decorating your property, it can be difficult to know where to start and what to choose. Plus it’s not always easy to keep up with the latest trends when it comes to setting up the style of your home. Here are some simple and easy tips to help you achieve timeless interior design.

Select a neutral colour palette

Selecting a neutral colour palette will help you add a touch of timeless elegance to your home. As trends come and go, opting for neutral shades of colours will help you create a look that will remain stylish, fresh and relevant over time. Our favourites include light grey, ivory and beige. Opting for white walls and ceilings will also make any room seem bigger than it actually is and will provide you with a blank canvas to display your décor.

Stay away from trends

It’s very rare for trends to last more than a few years so make sure to stay away from them when it comes to your main décor objects. If there is a trendy colour you would like to use, bring it in with small easy-to-change items. Opt for neutral and classic furniture and add touches of colours with trendy pillows and throws. They’re much easier and cheaper to replace than a sofa.

Play with symmetry

When creating a timeless interior design look, you should always consider symmetry. Displaying your items in a symmetrical way will automatically add a sense of harmony and balance to any room. But adding some symmetry doesn’t mean that you have to duplicate everything in a room. A mirror on one side of the room can be balanced with a table and a vase on the other side.

Focus on focal points

You should always select a focal point whenever you’re decorating a room. It will give the eye something to focus on and will add some more harmony to any room. Focal points can easily be created with pieces of artwork or furniture. For example, in your living area, you can use your sofa as the focal point while you can use the bed in your bedroom as another one.

Opt for classic patterns

Make sure to opt for timeless, classic patterns when you’re decorating your property. You should try to stay away from trendy prints such as animal and geometric prints as there’s no guarantee that these styles will stand the test of time. Just as you think about colours, lines and textures, also consider how you can mix pattern in your home décor. Your main pattern is going to anchor the space and is the pattern on which all others will be based. While your secondary pattern should accent the main pattern. When deciding which patterns to mix and match in your home décor always try to visualize them together.
