The traditional style is something that many people often overlook because it tends to be visually heavy. This can be a problem, because such an interior design style can feel a little too overwhelming in the mostly small homes that are the most common property in Singapore. So today, we’ll take a look at 5 ways you can design a warm, luxurious, and traditional style home interior even in a small Singaporean home:
1. Just focusing on the furniture
Most of the time, just themed furniture is enough to get that traditional vibe going. Tufted sofas and modern chesterfields are an excellent way to emulate this style in your home with both flair and subtlety. You can get inspired by the living room in this image, where the chocolate colored sofa brings in a gorgeous traditional panache within an otherwise simple interior design.
2. Traditional accent pieces
Another great way to emulate an understated traditional vibe in Singaporean homes is to use just a statement accent piece that represents this genre. This image showcases the perfect example of this technique. The divan evokes a traditional aesthetic with its classic design but the backdrop is as simple as they come. The contrast is truly beautiful.
3. Accessories always matter
If you don’t want to use large statement pieces or furniture to emulate a traditional style vibe, you can simply go for accessories to do the same job. These include light fixtures, tableware, candelabras, artwork, wall mirrors, and many more. All of these things can help capture the essence of the traditional style in the most subtle way possible.
4. Neo-classical pieces
You can maintain a sense of modernity in your space while emulating a traditional style aesthetic by using classical textures. Marble is, of course, the top of the list. However, you can also use other unique stones, laminates, and even rich wood textures to get a similar effect.
Lastly, you can select the color scheme of your home interiors to suit the traditional theme. Burgundies and neutral browns are the best choice for this purpose. They can be used throughout the space to deliver the best traditional vibe in the most understated way.
