How many times have you gone into someone's home and been bombarded with the latest trend? Maybe it was the oh-so popular pumpkins everywhere during fall or a little too much green for Saint Patrick's Day.
Although it is fun to keep up with the trends, they quickly become tiresome, are often expensive, and most importantly, they date your home. If you are looking for ways to make your home look classic and timeless on a budget, here are a few tips.
1. Pick Neutral Colors
First, stick to neutral colors when painting and decorating. This will ensure that your home looks good no matter how the trends change. Avoid overly bright colors as it may look tacky as time passes. A great color a lot of designers approve for a timeless style is agreeable gray, and pure white.
2. Blend Old with New Furniture
Second, blend old with new when it comes to furniture. Nothing makes a room feel more dated than an entire set of matching furniture from the 80s or 90s. However, by mixing in a few antique pieces or family heirlooms with newer pieces, you can create a stylish and timeless look.
