Classic style includes well-made furniture with detailing
such as inlay and carved or turned legs, as well as pieces
with ornate detailing, sometimes with a floral or fauna
influence. Fabrics that have texture and subtle patterns,
and stripes mixed with block colours, are popular choices.
/ The Concept
Classic — Yet Addapt to Modern Era.
The classic interior follows simple rules that you can adapt
for your own modern take. Start by simply repositioning your
furniture – you may be surprised at how simple yet effective
this look is for your space.
/ MATCHY-MATCHY! SYMMETRY WORKS BEST
To work out how to arrange the furniture, we think symmetry.
We Try to create mirror images, such as identical sofas
facing each other with a coffee table between, or maybe mix
it up with one long sofa and two single armchairs opposite,
as this still creates symmetry. Work the way around the
room, addressing the large pieces of furniture first, then
consider where the artwork and accessories will go – again,
matching pairs usually work best.
/ We Think Soft, But NOT forget the BOLD
As the classic look has a traditional element, a colour
palette from nature is a favourite. Look to yellow, blues,
greens and browns in soft tones. We adding work in emeralds,
plums and strong patterns, by following the rules of
placement. Off-white - black is a more traditional choice.
The structure or placement of items is the 'glue' to make
the look work, and repeating the colour palette throughout
the room creates harmony.
Accessories And Art
The placement of accessories is just as important in
achieving a cohesive feel.
/ Focal Point
The key to a classic interior is symmetry and order, with
furniture placement and styling usually working around a
key focal point, such as a fireplace. We Start by looking
at the bare bones of your home. The trick is to have a
focal point – we are thinking can work off that large bay
window or set of French doors.
