5 beautiful neo-classical interiors fit for a royalty
Neo-classical style is a blend of contemporary sensibilities combined with a modernized old-world charm. It is the perfect blend of richness within the context of the simplicity of modernism. When you apply the neo-classical style in your interiors it means you’re emulating a bit of the past within your space – but it is how this transition and synthesis is carried out that brings out the very character of your interior scheme. Most neo-classical themes are a mixture of classical Greek and Roman design elements with a bit of Venetian and Renaissance mixed in the scheme. These styles amalgamate with contemporary modernism to create a hard mix of an interior which has all the best qualities of the traditional designs with a completely modern flair. It can be a bit challenging to find the perfect balance between these aesthetics, but when it is done successfully, you get a modernized version of interiors fit for royalty. Below, we’ll be looking at 5 such beautiful neo-classical interior design interpretations.
- Only two-fourths rich
Here is a prime neo-classical interior articulation. It is carried out in a monochrome color scheme, which provides an inherent elegance to the scheme, but the material palate is completely contradictory; done in rich yet modernized materials that bring out a bit of tradition. This contradictory yet complementary combination of the palate works in complete tonal and visual harmony with the concept, and has been topped off by the large, hybrid style chandelier as the centerpiece.
- In the bedroom
It is extremely challenging to incorporate such a theme within the confines of a small bedroom, but it can be done. In the image below, the element of grandness has been incorporated by using low-height furniture within the context of a tall ceiling. The rich textures and gold lighting emulate opulence while the contemporary materials and setting emulate the modernized side.
- To the bathroom
A neo-classical theme is best applied in a luxury bathroom, but it can certainly be carried out in a small one too. In the interior below, we see the centerpiece vanity of one such neo-classical bathroom formation. The design has been carried out in the image Carrara marble with the help of some glossy tiles. The overall style of the vanity is grand, which is only enhanced by the stepped nuances of the design details.
- The wall façade
Classical interiors used to pay a lot of attention to small details even on a single wall – with wainscoting, pilasters, beading, veneers, broken pediments and more – but that kind of artistry becomes redundant in a neo-classical interior. So instead, designers use simple, modernized circular forms along with LED lighting techniques to set off the façade of the interior walls without going into too much details.
- Gold and spacious
The color golden is one of the main inspirations for traditional interiors, and to interpret that in a modernized way can be a bit daunting. Nevertheless, it can be done in a sleek and sophisticated way, as shown in the image below; were soft golden lighting complements the dusty browns of the color scheme in the best ways.
