You know the things that work best and stick to them. You dream of owning a home with an epic staircase one day. You probably have a Pottery Barn catalog on your coffee table and Pride and Prejudice in your DVD player right now. You like to keep things tidy with everything in it’s proper place. You appreciate the fine details that elevate the ordinary. You balance taking care of your home and your creative pursuits well.
Design-wise, it may be hard for you to branch out and know how to mix styles together. You struggle with feeling like everything has to match. You might want your home to have a bit more personality or feel like its not quite unique enough. You want to know how to display decor items in your home with balance and beauty.
The Traditional interior design style takes design influences from the 18th and 19th centuries by including classic art, antiques and items that reflect history. Typically this style is timeless and therefore includes classic furniture styles that are elegant, comfortable, yet cozy. The end result is a space that feels rich, warm and inviting. This interior design style is still popular today because of its familiar feel that appeals to those of all ages and personalities.
This style often includes:
- Detailed woodwork
- Carved mouldings
- Classic furniture
- Deep and rich accent colors
