Like fashion, music and art, interior design goes through trends. Flip through some old home catalogues and you’re sure to find some wacky schemes. But certain interior design principles—proportion, placement, and shape—never expire. And some interior design trends are timeless too. Our senior designers promise that these home decor trends will never go out of style.
If a material can seamlessly fit into any style of home design, then it’s truly timeless. And that’s why marble is never going out of style. Whether your design is traditional or contemporary, consider marble for a warm, yet luxurious finish. This mid-century palace features floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble and solid wood cabinets.
White Backsplash Tiles
White backsplash tiles will never go out of style. And while we love the look of rectangular white tiles, a more geometric pattern is timeless as well. In this modern tudor New Jersey kitchen remodel, we sourced tile in a diamond pattern, for something a bit different than the usual subway tile. But when sourcing white tile, make sure you offset it with dark cabinets or dark countertops, for a balanced neutral look.
Few looks are as timeless as hardwood floors. As a textured material that lends itself to contemporary design schemes, it’s an undoubtably desirable feature. In this chic loft overlooking Union Square, our client wanted to tear out the existing hardwood floors because of a few damaged areas. But we showed him how to use area rugs to cover up the damaged sections, heightening this refined, rustic look.
A Grey Couch
Your couch is the centerpiece of your living room. While the rest of your decor can easily be swapped out, your couch should be a constant, and therefore timeless. Some say that a grey couch can look bland, but we know better. Keep your living room looking fresh by decking out your grey couch with accent pillows and throw blankets. Swapping out accents is a lot easier, not to mention cheaper, than replacing your whole couch, and will give you a fresh, timeless look.
Neutral Master Bedroom
Your bedroom is a space where you should maintain tranquility. So outfit your bedroom with neutral colors that are calming and soothing. In short, home decor trends are for the rest of your home. Check out how we pulled off the neutral bedroom look in this hip Connecticut colonial.
Showing your love for mother nature will never go out of style. Whether it’s a fiddle-leaf fig or succulents, plants will always look great in your home. If you don’t have room for your plants on the ground or on your table, consider hanging plants on the wall. Check out the living plant wall in this Central Park West penthouse.
Showing Off Your Personality is Timeless
Your home is yours alone. So instead of trying to copy a magazine or look-book, have a home that’s representative of your personality. Whether it’s with art books, family heirlooms, or collections from your travels, showing off your personality will never go out of style. And there’s no better place to do this than your coffee table. Check out the collection of art books and decorative objects in this mid-century home away from home.
