Why Decorative Antiques Are a Great Choice for the Home
Posted on June 12, 2018
A good interior design is all about the perfect balance between all the decorative elements that are put to use. The shapes, textures, style, colour schemes etc all need to be in perfect harmony to look aesthetically appealing. When thinking about harmony remember the mix of the old world items with the new works very well and has a very classic appeal to it.
Antiques are appealing as they often have a lot of history around them which translates into this mysterious appeal. Antiques manage to add a very different contrast and depth to a home that shows of the owner’s unique taste.
There is a lot of scope for styling when it comes to antiques. You can go for a particular style for instance or you can mix and match with pieces at random. For instance you have the French Country look, Gothic style interiors, shabby chic look etc. The designing possibilities are endless.
Antiques have a quality and character around them that is worth showing off. These can bring in an unmatched charm to your decor. So rather than going for the usual, go browsing for decorative furniture like this glorious Coloured Cornish coffer. This is on stiles with a candle draw inside. Ideal as a coffee table or storage or both.
