The timeless classic contemporary style

by Carlisle Homes

If you’re looking for a style that seamlessly merges timeless classic elements with a modern twist, to create a fresh and sophisticated home, the Classic Contemporary collection is the perfect choice.

Pay tribute to the iconic drama of yesteryear through classic shaped furniture, in black and white palettes for a contemporary edge, and drape with luxurious throws in velvet and faux fur for that added touch of opulence.

Key to this interior style is finding the perfect balance between ‘then’ and ‘now’, a subtle transition where simplicity and clean lines are the heroes. If you’ve taken a tour of the Astoria on display at Upper Point Cook Estate in Point Cook, or the Portland at Cloverton Estate at Kalkallo, you will have already fallen in love with the timeless Classic Contemporary collection.

To get you started with your styling we have found these items to get you in the Classic Contemporary mood.

This stylish silver square glass lantern from Bed Bath n Table is a great start for this style, it’s versatile enough to be used both inside and out. The lantern pairs perfectly with this black and white Bravur clock from Ikea, which could be slotted into any room of this collection.

The Ivy Glass Table Lamp from Target can be perfect for bedside tables, a style statement without overwhelming the space. Conjuring images of the Classic Contemporary New York apartment, a chrome umbrella stand from Temple and Webster at the front door is both a style accessory and a practical inclusion!

Black and white photography is a signature element of the Classic Contemporary theme, the difficulty is choosing from the huge range of options available. We love this Soulful African Elephant from Wall Art Prints if an animal theme works for your home. While there is room for these ottomans in most décor styles, we think that this silver version from Temple and Webster is the perfect bling to add to a bedroom.

Adding a touch of high end sophistication to your living room, the Elle Round Marble nest set with black features, complements the clean lines for the Classic Contemporary theme.
