5 tips how to achieve classic dream interior with these 7 classic wallpaper styles

Tip #1: Harmonise with hues

Achieving a classic dream interior with our featured wallpaper styles begins with a harmonious colour palette. Opt for subdued tones like regal golds, soft blues, and timeless greys to create an elegant backdrop. Consider Damask in rich colour, Toile de Jouy in muted pastels, or Chinoiserie in calming blues. A well-coordinated colour scheme lays the foundation for a classic dance of design.

Tip #2: Mix and match with moderation

Strike the right balance by judiciously mixing and matching patterns. While the temptation to go all out with various styles might be strong, moderation is the key. Pair the grandeur of Damask with the simplicity of Stripes, or let the boldness of Art Deco dance alongside the subtlety of Trellis. A tasteful blend ensures that each wallpaper style shines without overpowering the room.

Tip #3: Create focal points with florals

Let your room bloom with a floral focal point. Whether it's a statement wall adorned with vibrant florals or delicate Toile de Jouy, strategically placing these patterns draws the eye and adds a touch of romance. Use florals in bedrooms for a dreamy escape or in living rooms to create a timeless, inviting atmosphere.

Tip #4: Embrace texture and shine

Classic dream interiors thrive on texture and shine. Damask wallpapers with their raised patterns, Art Deco's metallic accents, and the sheen of Chinoiserie create a tactile and visually appealing experience. Incorporate wallpapers that play with light, allowing your interiors to gleam with a touch of glamour, reminiscent of the golden age of design.

Tip #5: Let stripes set the rhythm

Stripes, the ever-reliable dance partners, set the rhythm for your classic dream interior. Use them to create an illusion of height in rooms with lower ceilings or to add a touch of formality to casual spaces. Horizontal stripes evoke a calming effect, while vertical stripes add a sense of grandeur. Let Stripes guide the dance, effortlessly connecting various design elements in your home.

Let’s orchestrate a symphony of classic style in your living space

In sum, classic wallpaper provides a canvas for self-expression, allowing you to curate a home that reflects your personal taste and stands the test of time. Embrace the elegance of Damask, the narrative charm of Toile de Jouy, the exotic allure of Chinoiserie, the glamour of Art Deco, the simplicity of Stripes, the natural beauty of Florals, and the structured sophistication of Trellis.
