What Is Traditional Interior Design Style?

Traditional interior design is a popular style of décor that is based largely on 18th- and 19th-century European styles and conventional notions of what a home looks like. 

- Key Characteristics of Traditional Interior Design Style:

  • Furniture, decor, art rooted in European design primarily from the 18th and 19th century, particularly from England and France
  • Design is based on styles of the past but often finished with fewer fine ornamental details
  • Rooms are set up to be functional, family-friendly, and comfortable
  • A focus on symmetry includes conventional space planning around classic uses of space; pairs of furniture and objects such as armchairs or lamps; and an overhaul harmonious feel rather than a room full of juxtaposition and contrast
  • Interiors may include traditional architectural elements such as crown molding and wainscoting.
  • Color palettes include subtle neutrals with sparing use of bold color
  • Wood finishes on floors and furnishings tend to be darker 
  • Walls are usually painted in muted neutrals but may include subtle patterned wallpaper in traditional motifs such as floral, stripes, or damask
  • Textiles are generally neutral or subtly patterned as with wallpaper and may include heavy cotton, wool, velvet, damask, and silk
