1. Use highlight elements
The best and easiest way to introduce classical touches in a modern setting is to use some of the most hailed design elements. While the classical style interior design genre used to be absolutely rich, you can use some of the rather understated ones. The living room in this image features wainscot style wall beading, plush furniture and great accessorizing to get the classical theme across.
2. Note the light fixtures
Nothing can get an interior design style across better than a light fixture. There’s always a glaring nuance in even the simplest light fixture that defines its style. As you can see in this image, the traditional drop chandelier above the dining table, coupled with the wall beading on the cabinet in the backdrop blend to give the most amazing classical ambience possible.
3. It’s the understatement
Sometimes, you can be as understated as possible and still get the classical undertones across. Take a look at this bedroom – there are dominant modern and contemporary design elements, but the classical style, damask inspired bed covers are what steal the whole show. They lend a powerful classical touch to the whole bedroom, and you can do the same for your interiors.
4. Tufting for the win
Do you know what the most dominant and underappreciate classical design element is? It’s tufted furniture. No matter what style and shape you use it in, it never fails to deliver. In this image, you’ll see the tufted study desk chair as the only classical element, but even alone, it is enough. It’s dominating tufted pattern is all the classical this bedroom interior needs.
