Timeless interiors are often the go-to domestic style. But what exactly is timelessness, and furthermore, how does one create it within their own home? Timelessness evokes a sense of history and tradition, while offering the home owner a style or design that will not date, or age with time. This age-defiant class and grace is highly regarded when decorating an interior, and works beautifully to create a room or residence that is sophisticated and regal. 

Today on homify we are paying homage to timelessly classic interiors; spaces that exude finesse, composure, and elegance. Domestic living zones that evoke a refinement, which not only ensures the home is magnificent and discerning, but also liveable and practical. If you would like to see some examples of stylishly timeless and classic interiors, check out the images below, and get some tips for your home decoration and design.

The impressive entry

The entry to a home is often one of the most important domestic spaces. It is the first thing you see when you enter the residence, and the last thing you see before you leave. In this hallway, the furniture and design is classic and elegant. Replete with a fashionable rug, as well as heavy draped curtains, the room offers the visitor, guest, or occupant a truly opulent and luxurious experience. Natural light brings warmth into the space, while the corridor console is rich in heritage and style.

A classic mirror

A classic mirror is a timeless addition to any home. In this example we see a gorgeous floor mirror that works exceptionally well to create an opulent ambience and atmosphere. Choose a stylish mirror for your room to evoke a timeless vibe and create spaciousness with the reflective surface.

The statement light fitting adds a rich modernity to the room, while the furniture is simple and elegant. In addition, the colour scheme is neutral and muted, exuding class and grace.
