Interior design that doesn’t go out of style.
You only have to peep at Zoopla or Rightmove to discover some terribly out-of-date interiors.
I’m talking dark wood panelled walls, textured wallpaper and coloured bathroom suites (but not in a good way).
Most interior trends will go out of fashion eventually – it’s about as likely as rain in April – so it’s hard to pick something that’s going to stand the test of time, but not totally impossible.
Interior design that doesn’t date
Classic interior design is less likely to go out of date; using timeless prints and neutral colour pallets will help your interiors stay looking up to date for longer.
If your furniture, fixtures and fittings are classic then you can always swap or update smaller pieces to keep your space looking modern with different colours prints and patterns.
Tip: make sure your interiors aren’t tied to a specific trend or decade for a timeless look.
