18 May Styling Your Custom Home: Should You Follow Trends Or Stay Classic?
When it comes to designing a home, there are two main approaches: trendy and timeless.
Trendy design styles are those that are currently popular and fashionable, while timeless style is designs that have stood the test of time and are always in style.
Trendy design styles can be exciting and fun, and are easy to find and replicate into your home to suit you and your style. However, they can also become dated quickly. For example, a bold colour scheme or a unique pattern may be all the rage one year, but it may look outdated in just a few years. If you go with a trendy design style, be prepared to update your decor frequently to keep up with the latest trends. The below tips we have curated can help you implement the current trending styles within your home effortlessly.
1. STATEMENT PEICES
Choose one or two key pieces that will elevate your home and add a touch of trendiness. Look for pieces that are unique and will draw the eye, such as one-of-a-kind furniture, art, or decor. When choosing your pieces consider colours that will pair well with a range of other shades and styles within your home.
2. POP OF COLOUR
Incorporate colour into your home to add vibrancy with furniture, art, décor and wallpaper. Consider bold and daring hues, as well as patterns and textures as a statement within the space. Use the pops of colour sparingly to create a balanced and tasteful look.
Use a variety of textures to add depth and interest to your home by incorporating different fabrics, such as velvet, linen, and fur. You can also add texture through wallpapers, rugs, and other furnishings that are modern and ‘on trend’.
4. PATTERNS AND SHAPES
Geometric shapes and patterns are definitely trending for 2023 especially organic shapes. Consider adding interest with shapes to your furniture and decor. Alternatively you can use wallpaper to add a bold and interesting pattern to a wall or space.
5. ART WALL
Create a unique and eye-catching gallery wall with a range of artwork and photographs that reflect your style. Consider a variety of sizes and shapes for a more interesting look.
On the other hand, timeless design styles are classic and elegant. A timeless home is one that never goes out of style, regardless of the current trends. Examples of timeless design styles include traditional, mid-century modern, and minimalist. Creating a timeless home with styling is all about investing in quality pieces, keeping it simple, and focusing on classic styles. By following these tips, you can create a beautiful and inviting space that you will love for years to come.
1. CLASSIC PALLETTE
Neutral colours like beige, grey, and white are classic and versatile. They create a calm and serene atmosphere that never goes out of style. Earthy, neutral tones will keep your home calm but adaptable. When choosing a colour palette, sticking to neutral shades will allow you the freedom to experiment and add pops of colour with accessories like pillows, rugs, and artwork.
Invest in quality furniture pieces that are well-made and timeless in style. Classic designs like mid-century modern, traditional, and transitional styles are always in fashion. Avoid trendy or overly ornate furniture that may become dated quickly.
3. MIX OLD AND NEW
Mixing old and new pieces adds character and depth to a room. Antiques or vintage items paired with modern furniture create a unique and timeless space. Plus, incorporating older pieces is a more sustainable way to decorate.
4. KEEP IT SIMPLE
Less is more when it comes to creating a timeless space. Avoid clutter and excess decor that can make a room look cluttered and dated. Focus on a few statement pieces and let them shine.
5. AVOID TRENDS
Avoid trendy decor that will quickly become outdated. Instead, focus on classic and timeless pieces that will stand the test of time. Trends can be incorporated sparingly with accessories that can be easily changed as new styles come and go.
Ultimately when choosing between trendy and timeless design styles, it’s important to consider your personal style and preferences. If you love bold colours and patterns and enjoy keeping up with the latest trends, a trendy design style may be the right choice for you. However, if you prefer a more classic and timeless look, a timeless design style may be a better fit. Overall, the key is to choose a design style that you love and that makes you feel comfortable and happy in your home.
