About Classic Style
One word that seems to attach to “classic” is “timeless.” Which speaks to the fact that this style go out of style, which makes it a great option for decorating a home. A decade from now, you won’t be looking around and thinking about how dated your home is. Hallmarks of classic style include that it uses colors reminiscent of nature, such as beiges and muted greens. In addition, it:
- Focuses on comfort and practical features. The higher-quality soft and cozy fabrics are built into furniture with an eye to last. It’s durable and will be around for years.
- Promotes symmetry. Classic design hails to good proportion for furniture. This helps ensure that pieces won’t overpower a room by being too bulky.
- Offers endless decorating options. With classic design, you can stick with the timeless pieces while still throwing in the spice of something fun, like an abstract painting, geometric throw pillows, or a trendy vase.
