Some styles of interior design are too beautiful to let fade away into non-existence. The Neoclassical Design style was a luxurious, romantically influenced design theme that emerged in the 18th century in Europe. Strongly influenced by Greek and Roman art, this sophisticated theme was truly awe-inspiring to anyone who had the privilege to gaze upon it. It was a timeless design that is still replicated today in many homes. Here is everything you need to know to encapsulate this wonder in your home:
During the 18th century, France and Britain both began appreciating Greek and Roman literature and philosophy more. This started the Age of Enlightenment, which brought forth the Neoclassical Design. This style was inspired by Romans and Greeks. To truly have insight on the desire, we need to rewind back to their interior design styling: Baroque and Rococo. A new spin on the beautiful architecture used by traditional Greek and Roman civilizations. This meant more columns, lavished details, ornate moldings, and highly lavished fabrics were being brought back into design.
Furnishings and Colors
Neoclassical has a rich and romantic presence. With beautiful tapestry, refined legging on furniture, and featured elements throughout the entire space. Your molding, furniture, and fabrics should all boast of elegance. This style is not one of minimalism and the more, the merrier. However, though subtle, color is present, but the design thrives off of classic white. Patterns and color are heavily muted, giving the space a majestic, heavenly look. It is one of the few designs that can incorporate so much intricacy yet master and airy, free-flowing space.
Décor and Accessories
A Neoclassical room flourishes with décor. Adding lamps and vases is a must. Do not leave out fine details like paintings that represent the era, dramatic accessories, patterned pillows, and sophisticated seating. Embellish your space with garlands and patterns, chandeliers, glass, and mirrors to add to the openness of a very heavily decorated room.
It is hard to not be inspired by this magnificent design theme. It is still highly appraised for mastering functionality in heavily lavished space. The harmony of light colors and beautiful décor feels heavenly. What do you think of this design? Would you put this in your own home?
