What does ancient Indian sites like Hampi, Indus Valley Civilization, Khajuraho, have in common? That they reflect a different era, have unique material palette and strong traditional values, which is almost impossible to construct in today’s time. With technology evolving faster than ever before, it’s expected that the real estate sector would also adopt to something which has more futuristic appeal.
However, some users are now looking for a home that doesn’t appear to be passe in the next couple of years. A home which has a timeless and classic touch to it. If you’re someone who is looking for a timeless design, then read on for some ideas.
Design that has staying power
Don’t go for something that is trendy instead opt for a design that suits the site. If you want your home to have that timeless look, one that is as fresh and relevant today as it was yesterday, and will be tomorrow, you’d want to seek out designs, colours that are meant to last.
Home with classic touch
The classic style is one that is enduring. For instance, take an example of Indus valley civilization. Even though, much of the structure has been lost over the years but the grid planning and basic overview of the site gives out an idea, as analysed by the archaeologists that it was one of the world’s most ancient urban settlement. From centralized drainage system, to exposed brickwork in the interiors, everything was top-notch.
A home that is timeless utilizes natural resources and fibres- woods, stones, bricks, and natural fibres such as cotton.
A design that is functional
Timeless design in functional and sensible. It’s not over the top nor is it boring. It’s perfectly scaled and proportioned. Here less is often more. Open spaces, simple interiors will always take precedence over busy patterns, shapes and spaces. Choosing a right colour is also important and it may be best to incorporate the right colour with accent pieces and accessories.
Make sure that the furniture is appropriately scaled to the size of the room it’s in. A room should aim for simplicity, subtlety and elegance.
