Design: Collective Designs

 

THE LOOK

Glamourous without being too fancy or fussy, this look is classic but keeps up with the times. Balance more ornate traditional styles with clean-cut designs for contemporary luxury. You will never spot anything too “trendy” in a Modern Classic theme — think elegant colours, too.

 

KEY ELEMENTS

– Luxe fabrics, such as velvet and silk

– Neutral base colours, with jewel-tone accents

– Brass or gold-tone metallic trimmings and details

– Fresh flowers with opulent blooms; for example roses, hydrangeas and lilies
