Key Traditional Characteristics
Inspired by the past
Traditional style borrows from the past inspired by the homes of the 18th and 19th century. The style is timeless, but not overly fancy. Look for structured pieces with carved wood or upholstery and pick colors that are neutral and elegant.
Traditional hasn’t lost what matters – and that’s all in the detail. The tufting and piping. The feminine fringe. That charming, nostalgic touch that comes from pieces like lantern-style lighting.
You can have your rich fabrics and love them too. Just like a cake, Traditional is one piece at a time. Think it through and decide what you really want by print, pattern and color. Velvet? Leather? Silk? Linen? A combination of many? It’s all up to you. Remember, Traditional is a little more relaxed.
Traditional begs you to declutter. Throw away what doesn’t match your current style. Simplify with a unified palette. Neutrals are always a good bet, because you can add colorful touches – a few vintage pieces sprinkled here and there, pillows and throws with splashes of color…the possibilities are up to you.Shop Traditional
Traditional is classic but not contained. You can put your own twist on the style in various ways, whether if be with modern lighting or vintage decor.
