Who Says That a Classic Home Means a Boring Home?

If you think that you can’t be creative in decorating your classic home, this article will help you reconsider your opinion. Here are a few classic home décor ideas by Gil Walsh to let you find what your home exactly needs.

The classic home décor focuses mainly on the natural colors and patterns, elegant fabrics, comforting furniture, and elegant architectural details. In a Jupiter and a Palm Beach homes, Gil highlights the architectural details such as moldings, coffered ceiling, antiqued wood columns, simulated limestone floor, and hand painted walls with natural patterns.

You can still display your favorite collection of books, paintings, sculptures, and unusual furniture pieces in your family room to enhance the personal touch of the place. It will be a great idea to provide your dining room a French touch using a delicately ornamented dining table, an antique head chair and smaller side chairs, bold orange-colored walls with bead-boards at the bottom, and French-styled curtains.

In your waterfront or seaside home, you can combine the eye-catching classic touches with the natural simplicity of the place. Gil Walsh and her team apply this idea in a Chilmark home displaying their collection of coastal accessories on the white walls.

Gill always says” I like to shop for accessories locally to make a house a home… Thrift stores, flea markets, I love to translate castaway items into a new environment.” Actually, Gill can achieve the homeowner’s dream of a” bright, light, open, comfortable and family-friendly environment with eye-catching architectural elements and a layering of colors and accessories.”
To make sure that your classy home will not look boring, you can use one or more oriental or Mediterranean pieces in the informal rooms. Gill and her team use an oriental rug with cocoa and blue colors as the focal point of the living room.
