    00:00 Introduction

    Like one's clothing choices, interior design can be intensely personal. However, unlike clothing which of course, you can change every day, interior design is a bit more permanent. Classic interior design can actually mean a wide variety of things ranging from more traditional styles
    like English country home to more modern aesthetics like Bauhaus and mid-century modern. In fact, these days, you don't even have to commit to appointing your space in just one style. Raphael and Teresa's interior design for example leans heavily toward traditional aesthetics as you're seeing here but even they don't stick to just one school of design. You can experiment with multiple styles at the same time to find a blend that's unique to you. If you look at modern home retailers, furniture companies, and design firms, it's clear that traditional design is not the most popular style today.

    Traditional design as it's used today is most chiefly inspired by 18th and 19th century European home decor. This style was formal and sumptuous embracing color, pattern, curved lines, and details aplenty. In other words, it's really the opposite of minimalist style and it's often described by adherence as being elegant.

    There are many classics out there, of course, but we think that this curated list of 11 choices will suit gentlemen who, like us, don't want to be in a space that will seem hopelessly dated in 10 years' time. Colors, patterns, finishes, and even the size of different furniture pieces can wax and wane over time but we think that this particular list of classics will never go out of style.
