Building Custom Old World Style Homes

Muted Colors

You wouldn’t dream of painting the walls of your home with bright, vibrant shades or pastel themes. Old World design focuses on regal and rich colors, which are muted to give the impression of being aged. Rooms appear sophisticated and warm, mirroring the atmosphere of European villages. Your home will tell a story through its color choices. Think creams, burgundy, forest green, and ivory.

Detail, Detail, Detail

Like we mentioned, you want your rooms to tell a story. Stories are told with detail! You enjoy furniture with a distressed look. Pieces that are handcrafted and appear to have survived throughout the ages. The walls of your home should be textured, such as plaster or stucco. You may even include stenciling and intricate ceilings. You dislike modern, sleek, and polished styles. You appreciate the beauty of handcrafted workmanship.

Visible Old World Style Architecture

Also, adverse to the modern design, you don’t want your home to hide its impressive architecture. Visible architecture creates a strong and formidable energy to a home. You enjoy exposed ceiling beams and brick walls. You want your doorways to be arched and grand. Why hide all of your home’s stunning detail away when you can showcase it?
