A fresh take on historical design – that’s what new traditional is all about. This style uses traditional structural elements, like furniture and architectural details, and combines them with lively and contemporary colours, fabrics and accessories. The result is a nod towards traditional elegance but in a way that breathes life and livability into your home.
New Traditional Decorating Tips
Provide a fresh balance to traditional furniture by choosing a modern rug that’s monochromatic, has an overscale pattern, or has a texture such as sisal or sea grass. Bring in accessories, like vases and lighting that have clean lines and a flood of colour.
Traditional woodwork, such as kitchen cabinets, can take on an updated look with an unexpected colour. Forego the traditional white cabinets in favor of a colour -infused neutral. A kitchen island with milled legs takes on a new look in a brightly saturated colour like plum.
Although inspired by elegance of the past, new traditional design injects rich, saturated colour to create sophistication. Instead of traditional burgundy, choose a colour with an unexpected touch of plum. Or contemporise traditional forest green with a hint of teal.
