Each time I attend the design trade shows, where we get a sneak peek at all the new trends and products, something becomes clearer and clearer. Traditional design is coming on stronger each season! But it is a more current and fresh traditional look, with new colors and tweaked patterns.
In this week’s episode of Tobi TV, I’ll show you how you can introduce this new traditional style in your home, with everything from updated damasks to brighter colorways to new scales!
Now you can see how you get that classic look, but with a fresher spin! Let’s recap those ideas:
- Overscaled patterns. Nothing is more traditional than a damask pattern in a classic color like navy. But if you overscale that pattern, it gives the design a whole new life.
- Tradition with a twist. If you take a traditional look like a claw-foot chair, add a twist like lemon yellow leather to give you a fresh take on a classic design.
- Add a “wow” factor. If you live in an historic home, or a home that features traditional architecture and design, avoid a stuffy formal look by adding a “wow” factor like bold wallpaper or an unexpected color.
- Keep it classic. Floral patterns and traditional designs are timeless looks. But consider lighter colors and simpler patterns to give them a current update.
As you can see, if you love traditional style then you are in luck – it’s always IN style! Share this video and the tips with your friends and family who love traditional decor. And let me know how you are decorating with classic looks and patterns.
