Design and furnishings for traditional tastes
Classic. Long-established. Decorative.
Traditional interior design is naturally elegant and timeless, usually luxurious. It’s comforting, calming and slightly formal.
Everything looks like it goes together, often reflecting historical design elements.
Wooden furniture is common, with a mix of straight and curved lines, sometimes with light carved details.
Window treatments are classically styled. Think full length drapes – with under treatments of pinch pleated sheers.
Accessories are often arranged in balanced symmetry – a pair of lamps, plants, mirrors, framed prints, china or collections of books. Floor lamps are common.
Traditional can be romantic, fun, serene. Ultimately, it needs to be simple but not boring!
There’s depth, layering and dimension within most traditional designs. Touches of colour quickly add personality – original artwork, patterned wallpaper, a unique ceiling fixture. The easiest spots for splashes of colour are window treatments, bedding and upholstered furniture or fresh flowers.
The overall ambience is homely, understated and harmonious.
