Five Secrets To Timeless Design

At Alder & Tweed, we’re in the business of creating completely original, and beautiful homes that not only satisfy our client’s desires, but effortlessly stand the test of time. Here are five coveted secrets to designing a home that is not only beautiful now, but will continue to remain beautiful throughout the decades.

Symmetry. When designing a timeless home, one of the main things to consider is symmetry. The human eye is naturally drawn to the balance symmetry brings to a space, which means that no matter what happens to trending design styles, symmetrical design is always pleasant to look at.

Create a focal point. A strong focal point serves well in any space and timeless designs almost never go without them. For the same reason as symmetrical design, focal points are pleasing to the eye and give the eye a place to rest. In this space, the focal point occurred naturally by way of this striking mantle. Our design team worked around this point to draw the eye inward and to create a sense of order within this lovely living room.

Don’t follow the trends. Don’t get us wrong, we see the value in all trending styles. However, if your goal is to create a home that ages beautifully throughout the decades, don’t follow interior design trends. It can be tempting to jump on the latest interior design trends when creating the house of your dreams, but even the most beautiful designs become dated when they are repeated too often. Originality never gets old.

Layer the old with the new. One fool-proof way to design a timeless home is to layer the old with the new. Here, our design team used modern furnishings within this traditional mountain home to create a cohesive balance between design styles which will prevent this handsome home from dating too quickly.

Keep the design clean. One of the easiest ways to achieve a timeless style is to create a space that is clean and neat. A home with clean design encourages tidiness and actually preserves the style of the home longer than a space that feels too cluttered and messy.
