Create a Modern Traditional Style Home

A traditional style home is elegant, luxurious and, most importantly, timeless. The key to perfecting this style is to unite traditional design ideas and decor with modern technology and amenities. To start, it's best to combine light, neutral walls with a simple, floor tile so you can build on your space from there. The key is to make a feature of original details as that will really help with the modern, traditional aesthetic. Also, a simple panelled wall with a feature window will work wonders for your space!

If you’re looking for some more traditional home ideas, then look no further than our curated collection of essentials, all hand picked by our in-house interior designer.

How to style a traditional home:

  • Choose classic items that will stand the test of time
  • Combine light, neutral walls with darker floor tiles or timber flooring
  • Keep your tiles simple
  • Choose a stone or marble vanity top for timeless elegance
  • Combine the simple with the ornate – try a moulded vanity with sleek tapware, or a streamlined wall-hung vanity with nostalgic taps
  • Make textiles a feature with soft-coloured accessories
  • Keep the space light and airy with sheer curtains

Traps to avoid:

  • Going small – if you have the space, choose a large vanity, big bathtub and a spacious kitchen sink - go all out!
  • Over-accessorising – keep it simple with plants and luxury soaps
  • Making it look dated – choose timeless rather than old-fashioned fixtures and fittings
