Never Out of Style: 6 Evergreen Interior Design Ideas

“Your Home should tell the story of who you are, and be a Collection of what you Love.”
― Nate Berkus, “The Things That Matter”

 No matter how many countries we travel to, no matter how many people we meet, and no matter how many things we learn, home is the one place that will always remain closest to our hearts. Home is the place where we unwind. It is where we truly let ourselves go and be our real selves without any inhibitions. However, any random building of concrete and cement cannot be our home, no matter how big and luxurious it is. A home is created by love and family. Your home has your own personal touch to it. It takes a lot of patience, determination, and hard work to build the home of your dreams. Naturally, you think twice before making any decisions about every aspect of your adobe.

Like all things in today’s fast-moving world, interior design trends keep changing every year. Though we all wish to keep up with the trends, it might not be possible for everyone to redecorate every other season. So, what do we do to keep our homes trendy yet not spend half of our time renovating? Well, worry not. I am here with some evergreen interior design trends that have been in vogue for decades. For all intents and purposes, they are here to stay.

Marble Countertops

Natural stones like marble are sure to enhance the net worth of your house. Keeping aside the financial aspect, marble is a beautiful yet practical choice for your house. It is a cool stone that is naturally heat resistant. This makes it ideal to be a baking surface. Moreover, every piece of marble is unique. They all have their own unique patterns and features. Rest assured, no other building in the world will have the same countertop as you. Isn’t that amazing? The luxurious stone has a way of making you feel special.

Fun Fact: Located in India’s Agra, the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world, is made entirely of marble.

Upholstered Furniture

Upholstered furniture is in style for a long period of time due to one simple reason. In addition to making the room pretty, they provide comfort. After all, who would not prefer a low-maintenance yet fashionable comfortable piece of furniture? Upholstered sofas, couches, and chairs among other are great choices for your living room. They come in various colors and patterns and can be easily made according to the theme of your room. Moreover, the soft cushiony feel of upholstery exudes an aura of luxurious ease.

Oak Floors

Oak floors spell opulence. They not only give a feeling of warmth but are also extremely durable. The more they age, the more beautiful they get. You won’t believe that some of the loveliest homes boast oak floors that have been there for over two centuries. In addition to granting your house a classic look, oak floors are also pretty easy to clean. Moreover, if your house boasts oak flooring, it stands to reason that the indoor air quality would be much better, especially when compared to homes that have carpeted floors. Now, let us come to the looks department. Be assured that oak floors don’t fade in color. Even after years, they keep up their luster with very little maintenance. If you get bored with the color, you can always opt to refinish the floor with very little cost and get a brand-new look for the room. Overall, oak floors are a great choice if you are going for long-term investment.

White Bedding

Our bedroom is generally a place of relaxation for most of us. After a long hectic day, we all long for a bit of peace and quiet before we finally call it a day. White bedding can help us achieve that much-coveted peace of mind. White denotes serenity and calmness. It has a knack for helping you unwind and just relax. Simple and uncluttered, white is the color of timeless elegance. They not only fit in with any design theme but also give you an avenue to unleash your creative side. If you are in the mood, you can always experiment with pillows and coverlets of different colors and patterns whenever you wish to add a pop of color. It makes your room seem luxurious and adds a dash of brightness, especially if your bedroom has fewer windows. Perhaps, this is the reason why most hotels and resorts are outfitted with white bedding.

Gallery Walls

Gallery walls are great ways to showcase your creativity and experiences. By dedicating a wall to your knick-knacks, photos of memorable moments of your life, and art collections, you are bound to add panache to your room. Quirky yet classic, gallery walls are an amazing way to personalize any room. They are wonderful conversation starters when you have guests over. Also, gallery walls have a tendency to remind you of happy times whenever you look at them.

Built-in Bookshelves

For all your bibliophiles out there, this one is for you. Built-in bookshelves are a great way to save space and show off your book collection in one go. They add an old-world charm to your home by making it appear sophisticated and elegant. By having the bookshelves on display, you also encourage the children of your home to develop their reading habits. Overall, it gives your house an intellectual vibe which is bound to impress your guests.
