Timeless decorating is designing the interior of your home in such a way that it stands the test of time. This is a neutral design that does not represent any particular decade or trend. At VC Interiors, we use timeless decorating for our clients. This helps our clients to save a lot of money. When we decorate with timeless pieces, you do not have to replace them when there is a new trend. Our pieces are classic enough that they go with every trend. We use items such as smart lighting, invisible grills, smart kitchen appliances, smart home appliances, automation, etc. Integrating these new technologies makes your interior design trendy yet classic. Whenever you feel like embracing a new trend, all you have to do is make small changes and you will not have to remodel or repaint your whole house.
Following are some of the tips we adopt to make our designs timeless:
1. Clean Lines
One of the most basic minimalist principles we use is decorating with clean lines. Furniture that has a clean line is a trend that works well with most styles. We avoid furniture that has ornate details, unusual shapes, flashy colours, etc. We look for comfortable, well-defined pieces in a neutral fabric. If our clients want ornate details instead of going for gaudy furniture, we look for furniture with classic details such as nailhead trim or tufting.
2. Neutral Colors
Neutral colours work with any style or trend. When you have a wall with a neutral colour, you can change the other colours in the room without having to repaint the whole house. This is because neutrals go with everything. We incorporate neutral colours in both the fabrics and walls. For example, if you have a neutral sofa, then you can add colourful pillows, rugs and other accessories to completely change your look. Thus, neutral shades offer a lot of flexibility.
Even with our timeless approach, we do not completely avoid trends. However, we try to make sure that the main pieces of décor are not centred on one particular trend. We use a trendy colour in accents and other accessories.
A cluttered house looks bad no matter what the season or trend is. With our timeless pieces, we make the space look clutter-free. We streamline the décor. Instead of using several pieces in a room, we focus on one big accenting element and other small accents to complement it.
5. Combine Old and New
Ancient pieces become timeless when you can use them in a modern design. When you mix antiques and new pieces of furniture, you can represent trends from different decades. This creates a lived-in yet sophisticated look. We use vintage pieces in our contemporary designs.
6. Traditional Patterns
Stripes, plaids, florals, and damasks have all been classic and traditional prints. We use these to create a timeless effect. For furniture that you might use for many years like sofas, we go for classic prints. For items that you regularly change up such as accent pillows, we use more trendy patterns such as animal print.
