Traditional design is all about sticking to the styles of pre-20th Century interiors. Period homes, such as Victorian houses, will already incorporate traditional interior architecture, such as chimney breasts, fireplaces, bay windows, cornices and mouldings, tiled flooring and dado rails. But traditional furniture that uses rich wood finishes, upholstered textiles, ornate details and classic colours can be added to create the understated elegance of traditional homes.

Traditional kitchens often have recessed panel or shaker-style kitchen cabinets with wooden or metal handles, traditional marble or granite worktops, and classic oven models, or perhaps even range cookers. Traditional bathrooms could have all white, or black and white, bathroom suites, tiled floors, pedestal sinks, and classic style taps and showerheads that would look at home in Victorian bathrooms. In traditional living rooms you might find chesterfield sofas, a Victorian fireplace with a mantlepiece, elegant vases, ornate picture frames, mirrors and classic colours. However, you don’t have to stick to all very formal and antique-style pieces, there are plenty of modern designs that use traditional form to create an understated and inviting look.

Beautiful traditional look with ample storage space. The bookshelves don't close the room in and make it seem cluttered. Well balanced. Love the way the dark tan leather offsets the dark grey. A very masculine feel. - mullas

Design ideas for a medium sized classic formal enclosed living room in London with beige walls, medium hardwood flooring, no fireplace, a concealed tv and brown floors.

When the green velvet fabric came across Studio L's desk they knew it had to be used. Ben Whistler made the elegant bespoke sofa which is a fan favourite! The walls are covered with a glazed abaca textured wallpaper. And to help disguise the bulkhead and tame the vaulted butterfly ceiling, Studio L also covered it in a silk wallcovering all by Phillip Jefferies. The ceiling has a slightly iridescent sheen that, depending on the light, gently changes colour yet is always flattering. Photography by Nick Rochowski
