Nothing is lost, nothing is created… we only have to look back at historical styles to find fresh and cool ideas.
Since the history of home furnishings has always been paralleled with the progress of the culture there are many parallels to be made between this edgy bedroom and the Neo-Classical style popular between 1750 and 1800. Case in point:
- Furniture with gentle lines made of a quality wood. The gilded bench, upholstered in fushia is a feminine and striking pop of color.
- Shining floor … with a herringbone pattern? Yes please.
- Flowing, lengthy curtains to match the huge windows; multi-patterned with various colors. Although the picture does not offer that vantage point, I assure you there are flowy ones indeed.
- Interior colors are pale and soothing: cream, stone, gray and pale blue, with hints of black… always!
- Wallpaper in geometric, floral or Classical designs is also appropriate. Here the use of the Auva wallpaper by Trove in a tie-dye motif, is a current twist on this true classic.
- Antique accessories from late 18th century; silver tea ware, china, candlesticks, screens, urns and statuary. The urn shaped lamps give the room balance and volume by contrasting with the delicate shape of the night stands.
