4 Timeless Design Choices That Never Go Out of Style

In the ever-evolving world of design trends, there are few genuinely timeless design choices. However, I have four classic staples to share with you today. These tried and tested design elements have truly stood the test of time.

Wicker furniture

1. Wicker and Rattan

Wicker and rattan, often dismissed as mere trends, deserve a closer look.

These materials have withstood the passage of time, seamlessly fitting into various design styles.

Rattan looks great as a cabinet door and nothing will ever beat a wicker basket. They continue to hold their place as design staples.

2. Herringbone

Herringbone, whether crafted in wood or tile, is a true classic that has stood strong through generations.

Crisp white bedding

3. Crisp White Bedding

I recently read that white bedding was out and I'm not sure who was given this authority over bedding but please do not listen to them.

Using crisp white bedding as a base

There is nothing—and I mean nothing—quite like a crisp white bedding set. It is the unsung hero of versatility.

Dressing up white bedding

Whether you choose to dress it up with vibrant throw pillows and blankets or embrace a minimalist vibe, white bedding will always be my go-to choice.

Classic blue painted room

4. Classic Blue

Blue, in all its shades, emerges as the color of all colors, with a timeless appeal that rarely falters.

Whether in muted tones or bold hues, classic blue is a perennial winner in the world of design.

I almost added green to this list, but I truly believe nothing can compare to the staying power of a classic blue.
