There is nothing as annoying as decorating your home, only for your decor ideas to end up outdated sooner than anticipated. We all want to enjoy our homes for the longest time possible. Moreover, furnishing a home is an expensive process. It is, therefore, necessary to invest in timeless furnishings that will surpass the test of time. Jimmie Martin, a duo famously known for creating artistic designs, set the pace when it comes to this topic. Below are five simple, yet timeless items, inspired by Jimmie Martin designs. Consider investing in these five if you want a home to keep for decades:
Furniture designs come and go, but it has become quite evident that vintage is the new cool. In this particular, house, a vintage armchair, which borrows extensively from Victorian designs accompanies a grey couch. It brings a rustic, yet elegant vibe with its, metallic finishes on the edges.
Who said all walls have to be painted; sometimes leaving walls bare can be appealing just like accentuating a wall. Brick walls dominate a space, and they are neither in or out of fashion – they are just timeless. You, however, need to ensure the surrounding environment is furnished with classy furnishings. To add a little glamour to the bare brick wall, Jimmie Martin mounted a wall hanging with bright colors.
Interior decor and art are inseparable. Every house needs an artistic painting. Paintings add perspective and meaning to a space. They are some of the interior decor possessions passed down to generations. This is mainly because, they never lose their meaning, just like photographs. Interestingly, the older they get, the more meaningful they become.
Colors are the least easy to replace elements in a space. Therefore, when choosing a color for your walls, ensure it can endure. Jimmie Martin use neutral colors which go along with anything. Colors such as gray and white are safe, and even when they overstay on a wall or furnishings, it is barely noticeable.
Lastly, a statement piece in every living room is in order and sculptures do a great job. Sculptures are artistic, just like paintings but there is more to them. They are more mysterious, and they can be placed anywhere besides on a wall. Jimmie Martin, in this case, chose to place a blue, metallic Horse Head sculpture on the table, just to complement the gray furniture.
