Traditional

 

“Traditional interior design brings the warmth and elegance of the past into the present.”

Traditional interior design is perhaps the most popular style in America today. It has roots in earlier generations but still manages to embrace the present with style and comfort.

 

Color can be used to help establish the level of formality.Deeper wall colors, like deep red or green hues, suggest a higher level of formality. Lighter colors and neutrals, on the other hand, can infuse a more contemporary feel to the style. Think about how you want the space to function and feel when deciding which direction to go with color. Choose something you love.

 

Traditional style can be adapted to a more eclectic and up-to-date feel by mixing in some fabrics and accessory items of other styles. This should be coordinated, but not necessarily strictly matched, to the rest of the scheme. This is my favorite approach when it comes to traditional interior design. I think it’s the secret to keeping this time honored style looking fresh.
