How to Design a Space That is Timeless

We all want our homes to look the best while suiting our needs and taste preferences. But too often, this is coupled with a need to keep up with each trend as it arises. In addition to being expensive and time-consuming, this approach can lead to your home being a mismatch of styles, looking nothing like the unique residence you imagined.

For high-end interior design near Boston, I advocate an entirely different approach; at Chrisicos Interiors, I aim for timeless, individual elegance that speaks of your style rather than a passing fad. Timeless beauty is not as difficult to create as you might first think.

The first step is using timeless materials that compliment any style. Flooring is central to the way a room looks and feels, and wooden floors are a good place to start. If you don’t want real wood, consider engineered wood, a hardwearing, environmentally-friendly alternative with the same look and feel as real wood.

By adding rugs or carpeted areas, you give the room your identity. The same is true of the furnishings within the room. Natural materials are hard-wearing, functional, and beautiful. Exposing the beams in an older home, adding granite work surfaces to your kitchen, or adding oak furniture to your living room all create a timeless feel. Additionally, you can add natural decorations to add that extra personal touch.

Color is the third piece of the puzzle. Start with a neutral palette on walls and ceilings. Add a vibrant feel with decor elements that are easy to change such as cushions, throws, and curtains. Finish with colored glass vases or dishware in the kitchen to add that personal color touch without placing an age limit on the room.
