Bucking Trends for Timeless Elegance
Updated: Sep 29, 2021
Trends come and go, but when it comes to interior design, certain elements remain the cornerstone of excellent style. At CM Fresh Perspectives, we take the tried and true approach to decorating your home, always with a fresh and personalized twist. Optimizing your space and creating an aesthetic that reflects your personality is our main goal. Here is a list of classic approaches to design that have withstood the test of time:
1. Clean lines give your home an open, uncluttered look and create a sense of unity within a space. The line is the principle unit in design; clean, unbroken lines create a sense of continuity as the eye moves from sofa, to fireplace, to window, to lighting. Clean lines became popularized in the US during the mid-century, and are often associated with minimalist design; however, the principle of continuity throughout a space precedes this era, especially in other parts of the world.
2. Natural elements can be incorporated in different materials throughout your home, including flooring, countertops, backsplashes and furniture. Using natural textiles in your design doesn’t have to mean committing to a full on rustic farmhouse vibe (unless that’s what you’re going for), it means paying homage to the earth as the original source of harmony and beauty.
3. Blending old and new elements within your space adds charm and visual interest. When executed correctly, incorporating pieces from different periods allows for an eclectic expression of style. It is also a great way to preserve pieces with sentimental value and family history, without creating an outdated look.
