Do you love the feeling of warmth and welcome in a home? Do you gravitate toward a style of rich comfort more than formality? The colonial era-born traditional style just might be what you’re after. While inspiration for this style type does come from the past, it’s ultimately about comfort, warmth, familiarity, and pleasantly predictable order.
Symmetry and Balance. As mentioned, the traditional style aims always to be functional and comfortable. From your architecture to your furnishings, you need to let an inherent sense of order prevail in the space’s layout. Place large, heavy furniture opposite larger focal points such as a fireplace or windows in conventional arrangements that work to visually balance out the space.
