Achieve a timeless home with classic touches

Shares

When it comes to fashion and decorating, we all have icons that we look up to. These life pegs – as some would call them, inspire us to become better and to work harder for our goals in life. Whether it’s fashion, art, or decorating, Audrey Hepburn is one of the first few names that come to mind when we talk about inspiration. The lovely lady who played Holly Golightly is truly the epitome of grace and elegance.

If you love Audrey too, then I’m sure you’re very much familiar with the cult classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. As one of most well-loved films of all-time, there’s a lot that we can get from the film aside from style guides and life lessons. Many have tried to recreate the look of Holly’s apartment and we hope to do the same! Get ready to give your home a new look with these tips and picks:

Choose your prints

The famous apartment in the film features a somehow minimalist scheme of black, white, and cream. While these colors can add a clean and streamlined look to your space, you may also want to add pops of pattern here and there. Achieve an old Hollywood vibe by choosing vintage damask patterns for your pillows.

Go classic all the way

For a bit of a modern touch, invest in ghost chairs that you can use in the dining area. You can also place a piece or two in the living room as accent pieces.

Add a bit of luxury

Reward yourself with a piece that you would love to use and display. Since the movie touches on life in a city like New York, you may also want to achieve a posh vibe at home. A furry ottoman is the perfect piece to do just that.

Pick a unique lighting fixture

To instantly give your space an upgrade, you can get a chandelier for the living or dining area. Since this piece is a bit ornate, you can pair it with simple furnishings and decor pieces. Aside from an elegant chandelier, you can also choose lamps with sleek and steel bases.

Add a bit of color

In need of a pop of color? Choose a desk that you can add to the work area or bedroom. This can also help break the monotony in your space.

Invest in a sofa

The home is the place where we can truly relax and unwind. Aside from having a quality mattress in the bedroom, you also need to have a comfy sofa where you can lounge and entertain friends. Worried that everything is white and plain? Add printed pillows and a throw to inject life into your space.
