English interiors: Furniture and decoration ideas for living room
The English interiors are characterized by their classic elegance. Wooden furniture, in natural or white color. Natural and pleasant fabrics and elements that make us think of the English countryside are its essential elements.
English interiors: Curtains with floral pattern
Accessories and patterns remain in the country and natural atmosphere. For covers, blankets and tablecloths, we prefer floral patterns. Sometimes replaced by small geometric shapes that give a more contemporary look to the interior. This decoration is often complemented by cushions, carpets or other fabrics in the same room that may have the same patterns or a similar color.
Wall covering ideas
For wall decoration, classic and timeless coverings such as wallpaper or tiles are selected. Here too, you can opt for decorations with floral motifs. You can see several examples in the picture above.
English interiors: Dining area or dining room
The floral pattern would also be a nice complement to a kitchen wall covering with small tiles in Victorian style, for example. These elements can be complemented with family portraits, artistic photos… Or with pictures of country landscapes or animals.

On the small accessories side, you can use wooden and porcelain objects. Those who love porcelain plates can choose blue and white English porcelain, very elegant and chic, to decorate a kitchen cabinet, a dining room or even the space above the headboard in the bedroom.

As far as colors are concerned, we prefer the combination of bright and classic colors, such as red, blue, green or gray with white. The colors chosen are used throughout the room. So, for example, we think about creating common elements between wall decoration, cushions and even very small accessories.
Attention to detail is typical for both traditional and modern English interiors
The English interiors are characterized by attention to detail and by the concern for a harmonious atmosphere. This means that all the elements of the interior are taken care of down to the smallest of accents. However, there is no need to rely on absolutely identical elements throughout the room. On the other hand, the use of colors and patterns is encouraged!
English interiors give great importance to the brightness
Not all traditional English interiors are necessarily distinguished by their optimal lighting. In fact, the interiors of urban residences dating from previous centuries are not always very bright.
White accents for a more welcoming living space
The choice of wall paint color and accents for wall decoration is one of the most important. Of course, the harmony of shades in a room is very important. But so is the color that dominates the vertical surfaces of the interior space.
