7 Inspiring Design Ideas For Timeless Homes

I have the itch to build something new. It has to  be timeless. You know what that means! Surfing design blogs. Shelter magazine subscription renewals. Nose to my favorite design books. And DESIGNFREAK-Y EYES WIDE OPEN to beautiful possibilities around the interwebs and social media where I recently spied The Fox Group. Onward with Inspiring Design Ideas for Timeless Homes!

Oh, goodness gracious, their work is so classically lovely to behold. Pristine white home exteriors to savor. Classic design details inside. Millwork and wainscot to make you want to blow up your rooms with plain ol’ orange peel textured walls (oh wait, forgive…that’s just this girl). Anyway. I am thrilled to share glorious inspiration from their projects beginning with today’s Inspiring Design Ideas For Timeless Homes. This home tour represents a renovation project for The Fox Group, who also build new construction, offer architectural and design services, and serve their clients with exceptional care. Cara Fox’s IG is a wonderland.

I encourage you to expand the photos of the exterior you see here to more fully appreciate the beauty of white painted brick!

If you appreciate Hello Lovely, it’s likely you admire timeless decor and timeless design. But what does that even mean? Timeless is not trendy…yes, we get that. A timeless look likely involves symmetry and clean lines…uh huh. Traditional fabrics, finds from travels, and classic furnishings are often incorporated into the timeless mix…check. Yet how does one create a fresh look with personality for today’s style of modern living while keeping the mood decidedly timeless and interesting?

Frank Gehry quote about architecture and timeless design: Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness. #inspiring;quote #designquotes #timelessdesign #architecturequote

In the coming days, let’s go timeless traveling. Let’s go deeper into timeless design sensibilities and tease out what timeless points to, what it seems not to embrace. I know of no better way to communicate about it on this medium than with inspiring images which sing and say what a thousand words cannot.

Share your thoughts about timeless homes and timeless design in the comments to add to the beauty and discussion…you make my day when you take the time to let me know you’re a breathing, human, design admiring beautiful soul. 🙂

    My imagination is limitless. I suppose you could say I’m a dreamer. What I know for sure is that without a dream you have stopped growing. When I was updating the power room, the painter asked me how long it took me to come up with the design and my quick answer was, five minutes. She was astounded. She just didn’t know me and that I have decorated a thousand houses in my mine. That said black and white checked marble is a favorite as well as marble anywhere. Remember the marble steps that are ancient are still beautiful. No matter how simple or small a house may be, doors and windows will make a statement that nothing else can. French doors, beautiful windows, moldings will change the house and might even change you. Love this pist.

    Beautiful ideas here. Every time I see a gas lantern at an entry, I think that this must be a special home! It just gives that feeling of richness.
