Traditional Interior Design

At David Hales Design Studio, we find that despite unfair connotations of predictable and stuffy interiors, effective traditional interior design can result in the creation of inviting, inspiring and downright incredible spaces of enormous appeal. It’s simply a case of taking a step away from the generic, focusing instead on creativity and personality.

Exactly what represents ‘traditional’ interior design is a subject of strong debate. For some, it’s all about the accessories – furniture, fixtures, ornaments, window dressings and so on. For others, traditional interior design is based around the selection of timeless colour schemes from years gone by. To us, however, traditional interior design is all about creating a reflection of the client’s personality and priorities.

For millions of property owners across the UK, traditional interior design and style is the preferred option. But what exactly is traditional interior design and style? What does ‘traditional’ mean from an interior design perspective?

For the most part, effective traditional interior design seeks to create spaces that are calm, comfortable and orderly. Ornate and ostentatious accessories are optional, but there are some key elements considered mandatory in traditional interior design – symmetry, soft furnishings, a sense of space and so on. Viewed from a slightly different angle, chaos and randomness go entirely against the grain with traditional interior design.

While there will always be basic guidelines to follow, traditional interior design means different things to different people. That’s why we work hard to ensure the projects we complete become living, breathing reflections of our clients’ personalities. Whatever traditional interior design and style means to you, we’ll bring your vision to life before your eyes.
