I recently would like to change the theme of my small house outside of town to something that is perhaps unique, a bit of unusual, not too technology advance kind of look, just like my current dwelling down town, so I was trying to figure out what theme that would be the best for me to adapt.
I happened to just came back from my recent post in Far East and brought back lots of house furniture and stuffs from that place which are typically look “worn-out” although they are not all old, but somehow they are kind a look “old” in certain way. It was only yesterday that I came across the term “Old World home decor” in the internet when I was searching for some ideas for my home decor purpose.
I spend some time in learning what is this old world home decor is all about and discovered some interesting information about it. The term of Old World is actually/basically referred to a design that is comfortable, broken-in look that shows the wear and tear of use. So, this design idea is seems to be a design which showcase elements which are certainly way from look “new” in one way or another.
This idea of old world home decor certainly tingle my sense of curious because it seems that those stuffs and furniture I brought back from Far East are just seem “right” to this design style at one degree or another. My “old-look” furniture and stuffs are dominated with deep, rich and regal but muted for a timeworn effect colors.
Most of them have slight combination of burgundy, some navy blue color as well as few hints of forest green with some combinations of dark-stained surface finishes which certainly stimulate years of use feeling whenever I looked at these furniture and stuffs I brought back from Far East country I was posted.
The more I learned about this Old World home decor design information, the more I convinced this is just the right one to adopt for my small house out of town. All those pictures I saw which represent this design and theme seem to be able to brought back some romantic feeling about the old days which makes me feel comfortable and warm at heart when I look at it.
I discovered some online furniture shops which have old world theme stuffs available, some are real “old” ones and some are designed to look “old” which I would certainly spend sometime to have a look for detailed idea and concept to adopt it my self.
