Traditional Design

The appeal of modern interiors is undeniable — they’re sleek, convenient, and often serve as the canvas for personal expression. However, there is a certain completeness that comes with the integration of traditional elements. This doesn’t mean we should turn our backs on modernity; on the contrary, it’s about finding balance. Combining classic elegance with contemporary functionality results in designs that are not just beautiful but practical.

If you’re drawn to the allure of traditional interior design, Sean Symington Design is here to transform your vision into a reality. Our seasoned designers understand the nuances of traditional aesthetics, incorporating elements such as ornate mouldings, classic furniture pieces, and luxurious fabrics to capture the essence of timeless style. Whether you’re envisioning a stately living room, a cosy study, or an inviting kitchen, we tailor our approach to your preferences, ensuring a harmonious and personalised traditional interior.

With a team of skilled professionals who are dedicated to delivering an approach that is client-centric, we offer comprehensive design services that cover all aspects of conceptualisation, execution, remodelling, construction, styling, and finishing touches.

Home renovation

Traditional interior design in residential properties holds enduring appeal and contributes positively to the overall ambiance of homes. Firstly, traditional design aesthetics often incorporate timeless elements that create a sense of warmth and familiarity. Classic furniture pieces, ornate detailing, and rich colour palettes contribute to an inviting atmosphere, fostering a comfortable and welcoming living space.

One significant impact of traditional interior design is the creation of a sense of continuity and connection with the past. Elements such as vintage furniture, antique pieces, and classic architectural details evoke a sense of history and tradition, providing a link to cultural heritage and craftsmanship. This connection to the past can imbue the home with a unique character and a narrative that resonates with the occupants.

Traditional interior design also promotes a feeling of elegance and sophistication. The use of luxurious materials, such as hardwoods, fine fabrics, and intricate patterns, elevates the overall aesthetic of the space. This attention to detail and commitment to craftsmanship enhances the visual appeal, creating an atmosphere of refined beauty that can be appreciated by both residents and visitors.

Additionally, traditional design often emphasises comfort and functionality. Thoughtfully arranged furniture, plush upholstery, and practical layouts contribute to a cozy and livable environment. The focus on comfort aligns with the idea of the home as a sanctuary, a place where individuals can relax and feel at ease, surrounded by familiar and comforting design elements.
