Styling your home with Classic Contemporary style homewares and decor

Here is a quick styling guide to keep in mind when designing your home in the classic contemporary style: 

  • The Colour Palette

The classic contemporary colour palette features soft and tonal neutrals of calming whites, ivory, oyster, tan, taupe, and soft greys.

These quiet neutrals are carried throughout the home, allowing each room to flow seamlessly. 

Complementary colours include olive, celadon, or emerald greens, pastel sky and navy blues, soft pinks, mauve, and gleaming metallic accents. 

Rich browns, natural woods, and black are used for grounding and adding definition to an otherwise neutral backdrop. 

  • Architectural Features

Balance, symmetry, and proportion are the most distinctive elements of contemporary style architecture. 

While classic contemporary interiors are not limited to a particular architectural style, this style would be fitting within Georgian, Federal, and English Neo-Classical Styles.

An appreciation of classical architecture is reflected in the inclusion of panelled ceilings, pilasters, skirtings, cornices, and classic wall mouldings.

  • The Decorative Elements

Classic contemporary interiors tend to showcase 'space' and architectural details rather than excessive collections. 

As such, classic contemporary homes reflect a harmonious and balanced approach to decor.

To achieve a curated feel, select just a few decorative accessories to display on bookshelves, sideboards, or on coffee tables. 

  • For lustre, options include a glass dome, magnifying glass, metallic trays or charger plates, pretty picture frames, pewter barware, hammered brass candlesticks, glossy hand-crafted ceramics, and glass vases.
  • For something loved, include eye-catching decorative figurines made from resin or iron, small busts, leather trays or boxes with metallic accents, rattan decor, coffee table books, or your favourite candle or fragrance.
