Classic Traditional Style
Paint & Interior Pairing
Achieving a traditional living room shouldn’t be as difficult as reading Tolstoy, nor should your finished product be as stuffy as an Austen aunt. It’s really as simple as pairing classic silhouettes with traditional colours, but adding a modern twist to amp up the elegance. Is creating a living room fit for a Bronte sister on your bucket list? Here’s what you need to know.
Ensure your furniture has classic design touches and references. Elements like studding and deep tufting evoke an old-world feel – establish a gorgeous place to sit with the Dianna Armchair or the Madeline Chesterfield 3 Seater Sofa. These pieces add refined flair, and when couples with some soft furnishings for texture and detail, will be a cosy spot to relax after a long day. Combine classic materials and prints like toile, embroidery and florals with soft furnishing options like cushions, curtains and throws. To bridge the gap between old and new, opt for a traditional rug, or modernise with something contemporary and abstract in a muted colour.
There are a range of colours, both neutral and bold, that will work well in a traditional living room. For something ultra-neutral, go with a light, warm grey like New Tab, with clean, bright white trim in Paper Plane. For a nod to the sitting rooms of yesteryear, you won’t be able to resist a classic light blue such as Bubble Bath, which will look beautiful paired with accessories in a deeper shade.
For something bolder that still fits the traditional aesthetic, opt for a deep grey-blue like Sunken Treasure, the classic grey-green of Jungle Look or a deep, warm burgundy such as Plum Intended.
