How to create a timeless interior with our Ashley Wilde cushions
Are you taking a look around your home and thinking it looks a bit dated and in need of a refresh? Or perhaps you’re wondering why you ever bought ‘the must have home interiors wallpaper trend of 2016?’ If this sounds like you, you might be wondering how you can create a timeless interior that won’t go out of style in a few years. Well, luckily for you we’ve created this handy guide on how you can do exactly that. So read on for some ideas..
What is timeless style?
The definition of “Timeless” is something that is not affected by the changes in fashion. Timeless interior design is quietly understated, simple and sophisticated, created not to be temporary as it will never go out of style. It is also super important that a timeless scheme in the home should also be functional.
Be consistent throughout your home.
When aiming to create a timeless interior, consistency is key! This means however you are choosing to decorate your home, be consistent with it throughout.
If you want to have a wood floor in your living room, opt to have it throughout. If you want to use neutral paint on the walls, use the same paint throughout. Choosing curtains for your home, use the same curtains for any windows that are suitable.
Being consistent throughout your home will ensure that your decor flows from room to room. It’s super important that when you are choosing these particular aspects of your decor, pick wisely as it’s essential that they are comfortable, you like them and are happy to use them in every room.
Staying away from trends.
When decorating and accessorising your home, staying away from any interior trends is essential if you want to create a timeless scheme. Unfortunately as trends pass and go out of style, so will your home. If this is the case, be prepared to either update your home more regularly, which can be quite costly in the long run. Or be prepared that eventually your interior style won’t be as on trend as you once hoped.
You might want to consider creating neutral colour schemes for your walls and flooring. Neutral tones are far less likely to go out of style and therefore you shouldn’t feel the need to be picking up the paint brush to completely redecorate. If you decide that you MUST have that super bold wallpaper in your bedroom because you truly love it. Why not make a feature wall of it, re-papering one wall is far less hassle than having to redecorate your entire room.
Choosing functional items.
Timeless design is beautiful, but it is also functional and sensible. We all know that our houses have to endure the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, so it is essential that you choose practical items for your home.
Choose quality products.
It’s super important that when shopping for your home you are choosing good quality products that will stand the test of time. By doing this, it means that you won’t have to replace them as frequently and they will stay looking beautiful. Quality products might be a little bit more of an investment, but if they are designed to last, they will save you money having to replace them frequently.
Purchasing something you like.
If you take all the above points on board it is absolutely essential that you choose something that you really like and would be comfortable having in your home for a long time. Shop wisely and carefully. If your heart skips a beat when you see a product, it’s meant to be. If you’re having to ask for a second opinion, then don’t buy it.
