A Modern Home with Timeless Style

Posted on April 26th, 2012 by

A truly timeless modern home can be a work of art. It takes strict aesthetic vision, creative inspiration and a bit of fun to create a timeless modern style home. One major key in creating this kind of home is choosing things that will age, and allowing for small edits over time.

You will want to pair clean architectural lines with modern furniture that will stand the test of time.


Keeping it simple may sound boring, but there is nothing boring about the minimalist style that helps your timeless modern space to withstand the aging process.

Don’t be afraid to mix your mediums. Mixing wood finishes with the industrial look of stainless steel can really make your kitchen pop with modern style that has timeless appeal.

However, what we do not need is too many overcrowded storage areas that are easily seen. Hiding storage with architectural elements is the best way to solve this dilemma and add more aesthetic pleasure to your home.
