Y’all know I love a good trend! But what really keeps a home looking fresh and new, is mixing the new trends with classic, timeless design. These four timeless trends are super affordable but are easy to make. Using these will keep your home from feeling outdated.
Did Someone Say Plants
Plants never go out of style! Thanks to covid, we’ve seen a resurgence in using plants in our indoor spaces but it’s not a new trend. Plants (whether real or fake) are an easy way to add texture, color, and life to a space. They are also super versatile and can change the style of a room based on how their potted or which kind are used. It can be one of the easiest ways to make a space feel more modern. Add potted plants to bookshelves, mantles, or end tables for a cozy accent and use larger plants to fill corners and soften a room.
Change the Hardware
With the simple switching of some hardware you can take a bathroom or kitchen from 80s trends to a classic look! The key to creating a look that’s timeless and not trendy is avoiding hardware that too specific to a certain style. Choose hardware in traditional materials like brass, bronze or copper with clean lines and a simple design to get a timeless look.
Have Fun with Traditional Textures and Patterns
You know traditional styles when you see them – think Turkish rugs, stripes, linen pillows, etc. Pull these elements into even the most modern of spaces, and you’ll instantly have a timeless design that’s inviting. Find a style that you like best (pinstripes, plaid, florals) and incorporate them into your pillows, throws, and accessories to give a room that timeless appeal. Add in more trendier items to keep the space feeling fresh.

Invest in Vintage or Antique Staples
Think of your grandmother’s china cabinet that has been passed down to each new generation. Adding a few vintage or antique items to a space can give any room a classic feel. Not only does shopping vintage make for a more sustainable design, but good quality pieces and be refinished or reupholstered for a more modern take on traditional lines.
