Interior Design Tips: Traditional Style

Traditional style is the epitome of comfort and tranquility. Everything matches and nothing is out of place. Homes in this style typically contain detailed millwork, soothing colors, and hardwood floors. There are many reasons to design a house in a traditional style. We’ll cover all those reasons and more in this piece. 

Traditional Style Defined

Before we can talk about how to design a room traditionally, we have to understand and acknowledge the details that define this style. The traditional decorating style is defined by calm, orderly, and predictable pieces. There is nothing wild or chaotic in a traditionally-styled room. The furnishings are classic and every piece matches. This style is somewhat casual and contains pairs of furniture that are centered in the room. Traditional-style homes feel comfortable and familiar. 

Elements of a Traditional Style

There are several elements that contribute to the creation of a traditional style. First, traditional homes have a rich color palette. This palette starts with a neutral base of colors like cream, beige, and brown. Common wood tones include mahogany, cherry, and walnut. Then, you layer in deep, saturated tones like burgundy, saffron, and emerald to create a rich and lavish feel. The next traditional style element is classic patterns. You will likely find floral, stripe, plaid, and paisley patterns throughout a traditional home. These design elements can usually be found on the furniture, rugs, and window treatments. Finally, there are some furniture and accent pieces that give a room a traditional look. This list includes pieces like floor-to-ceiling curtains, oriental rugs, elegant mirrors, and crystal chandeliers. You will also find that traditional-style furniture pieces have curved or carved legs, tufting, or skirting. These are just some of the elements that define a traditional style.
