Traditional Interior Design Ideas And Ways To Get Back To The Old Fashioned Theme
One of the enduring styles that have conquered every aspect of the design field is the traditional designs. We can see them almost everywhere, be it in clothes, architecture or interior design. This style has always successfully passed the test of time. In this modern era, who doesn’t want to have a classic touch to their home?
You must have noticed the royal homes in films that have huge beds, ornamented shelves, historical portraits and so on that reflect a majestic feel. Well the traditional design is what it is and is generally a broad term which dictates various styles that were prominent in an era—for example, the classic Indian design and the traditional American design. Every conventional design has its own little set of rules and nature that when acquired together achieves that specific design you opted.
Traditional designs have a rich history. It’s a timeless style that conveys elegance and comfort forever and is great for those who appreciate antiques, classic art, and history. It will surely give you a chance to peek into the once golden age of an era. Here are some inspirations from traditional interior design ideas that you can look up to ace this classic vibe for your traditional house.
Choosing wall paint colours is one of those steps that will help you to decide the mood of the home. Every colour dictates a particular feeling. So, choose a colour that reflects traditional ideas. Even though the traditional interior design style doesn’t ask for a specific colour or shade but often light colours are preferred more than dark colours which act as a robust foundation for your space. Try not to use too many colours and keep it minimal. Using different shades and tones of a single colour is a popular way to remain minimal with colours. You can play with patterns on your walls as well. Our designers at Middle East Builders suggest picking some dark warm tones if you don’t love to keep it neutral.
Furniture with ornamentation is an admired art for this type of design. You should avoid overly minimal designed modern furniture. Include your favourite period piece furniture that highlights architectural elements like moulding. Go for dark rich coloured furniture to play against the neutral wall paint. Items made from hardwood is a common choice to achieve this kind of look. The furniture pieces you choose should be known for its detailed work such as claw foot, button-tufted pieces, armchairs or metallic details as it will visually take you back to those ancient eras.
In traditional design, textile and fabrics used in the form of curtains, pillow cover, sofa cover, table cloth, table mat or floor mat, is something that leads your space. One cannot avoid its beauty. Fabrics with simple or complex patterns or floral prints or even just plain bold colours are great to achieve the modern traditional interior design style.
Accessories are a way to add fun to your serious home design. Items such as a gilded mirror, four-poster bed, oriental rug, bamboo table or circular dining table will help you to accentuate the traditional design theme. Other add on that you can use to decorate a conventional shelf include sculptures, candelabra, silver vase, ceramic flower pots, pendulum clocks, chandeliers or art pieces will make sure your shelf speaks an ethnic language of its own. Indoor plants can also help you to achieve that majestic look of traditional interior design.
Flooring for traditional homes is a bit challenging, and you might often get overwhelmed with the options available. Wooden floors are the most popular choice as it feels warm and welcoming. Other options available for you are stone, limestone, marble, pebble and bamboo flooring. The choice depends on the budget and the style you want to create. But this is an investment of a lifetime so we suggest you pick one which is most interesting to you.
Traditional interior designs are a timeless thing, and the designing is all about to be able to travel to the past era visually. It should narrate the stories and culture that was predominant in those eras. Various architecture and interior design companies can guide you to choose elements suitable for this style that together can help you to achieve what is sometimes known as the old-fashioned classic look or the golden age look.
