4 Unusual Decor Styles That Are (Surprisingly) Timeless
Decorating your home in a way that goes above and beyond current décor trends often entail looking into timeless, classic colours, prints and furniture.
Still, the concept of ageless décor can appear predictable as the same old decorating advice circulates.
Is there room for fresh, unexpected design elements that can still endure over the years? There certainly are! Here’s a look at four unpredictably timeless interior design ideas to consider:
1. Graphic Prints

With natural elements driving décor styles for the last ten to fifteen years, graphical prints (in the form of wallpapers / tiles) has been promoted through the style ranks.
And although more frequently attributed to kitschy, eclectic styles, animal prints can also be tasteful, especially when matched with more sophisticated, high-end décor.

2. Elements of Space and Science
To infinite style and beyond! Yes, you may not have guessed it but outer space and science has played a cool part in interior design, at least since the 1960s.
Along with the moon landing craze, clean and pristine elements of space and science dominated everything from fashion to architecture and even interior design for years to come.
In fact, space-inspired furniture such as sleek pods and swivel chairs has been and is still seen in numerous décor styles.
Also, note that white is commonly associated with science, as are other cool, scientific hues such as grey, silver, navy and black.
So don’t be afraid to embrace these timeless colour schemes and aesthetics for your interiors, especially if you are a space junkie looking for enduring décor!
3. Unusual Colours In The Usual Places
While typical modern-contemporary décor has us decorating our homes in nothing but beiges and its family of neutrals, bringing in a pop of colour is proving a must!
But a fresh burst of colour does more for your décor than simply shaking up the monotony; it can even add an element of class that will set your interiors apart from the rest.

And more so when it is done artistically with unusual colours in unusual spots; just imagine a brilliantly neutral home that stands bold with a classic, statement-making red door.
Still, if a daring door is not for you, a similar aesthetic can be applied in a milder strength. For instance, consider getting unique, navy kitchen cabinets, use gold-wash accessories, or paint a back wall of your living room in a bold colour.

4. Marble Sophistication
Always the obvious choice when it comes to decorating modern, sophisticated homes - marble prints will be here to stay (at least for the next couple of years).

Although commonly used as a countertop highlight for the kitchen island, you can consider vertical applications like a splash on the walls as a feature highlight.
