Timeless home décor tips

Trends are whimsical, and keeping up with them can be quite frustrating. Our advice - don’t.

Don’t follow the latest and the greatest because soon they’re going to turn into back-shelf sale items. Choose timeless simple home décor styles that will stay with you for a countless number of years, keeping it fresh for years to come. Here are some ideas you could hopefully benefit from.

A minimalistic approach

Less is always more. The less you have crowding your shelves and tables, the more organized your home will look. Also, you’ll have less surface area to dust every weekend. It’s the same for every room. Stick with furniture that’s proportional to the size of your room, and you’re good.

Colour accents

Every year has its own ‘it’ colour, but a room will always need a little bit of fun to really pop. Instead of getting an orange couch or painting your walls a very beautiful sea-green, choose accessories and pillows in the bolder spectrum; they’re usually way easier to replace.

Functional furniture

No matter how chic something looks on the magazine, always place comfort over style on your priority list. What good is that bean bag chair in the study room if it hurts your back? Furniture are meant to be used, not admired from a distance.

Quality over Quantity

Just because you own a shelf doesn’t mean it has to be stocked and completely cluttered, and just because your home has walls doesn’t mean it needs to be covered in priceless paintings and your grandma’s photos. Instead, invest on something unique for the coffee table – something high-quality and antique.

Lighting

If your room has windows, opt for curtains that let in plenty of sunlight. If your room does not have curtains, please try to invest in high-quality lighting that gives your room a taste of natural light.

Durability

This should probably be one of your most important deciding factors. Be a wise shopper. Don’t choose ten new trendy-looking items that will make your way to the waste bin in less than a month over something well-made and which would be your friend for years to come.

Warm colours

They will always, always make your room look super cozy and rarely run out of style, unlike the latest trends - they never stand the test of time.
