As Yves Saint Laurent once famously said, "Fashions fade, but style is eternal".
And if you’re looking to deck out your brand-new abode, it’s
important to know that not every trend will stand the test of time. From
the multi-colour shag carpets and beaded curtains of the 70s to the
avocado bathrooms and waterbeds of the 80s – every decade is guilty of
interior tragedies that should never be revived.
So, to ensure your new home avoids any interior faux pars, we’ve
enlisted the help of Metricon’s Senior Interior Designer and decorator
whiz Jacinta Evans, who has shared her tips and tricks so you can
futureproof your home and create a timeless look that transcends the
Neutral walls and ceilings
Patterned wallpaper and pastel colours can add impact to your space,
but if you don’t want to get the paint roller out again in a few years,
it’s best to stick to the tried-and-true neutral colours. Jacinta
suggests working with whites, linen tones, and soft greys, adding
“mixing these colour schemes with a hint of charcoal or black will
guarantee this palette remains on point”.
