    We look at the elements that bring together a room which feels fresh and modern over the decades, from colour palettes to furniture design. Read on for our tips on creating a sustainable home with timeless appeal. 

    Choose Quality

    The secret to creating a timeless interior is to use quality pieces that will stand the test of time. Poor quality furnishings, fabrics and finishes weaken the character of a room and are likely to only last a few years. In comparison, using furniture crafted from sustainable, functional materials will allow you to create a purposeful, timeless interior

    Keep it Simple

    Select furnishings with simple, clean lines that will seamlessly evolve with your personal style over time. You can then add character to your space with soft furnishings or decorative pieces that are authentic to you. This will ensure that the furniture you purchase, especially the investment pieces, will be a part of your home for years to come and will allow you to adjust the look and feel of your space with ease.

    Begin With Neutrals

    Styling your home with neutral and natural finishes is another great way to create a timeless interior. We recommend starting with a neutral colour palette to begin with and then adding touches of colour through rugs and soft furnishings. This will add an element of warmth and texture to the room without overpowering the space.

    Timeless vs. Trendy

    Remember to be inspired by a trend, not bound to it.  At Totem Road, we love contemporary mid-century and Scandinavian design, however, we craft our furniture to ensure it can be personalised to seamlessly fit into your space. This will ensure that as trends come and go, your space will be a timeless sanctuary that feels authentically your own.
