Neoclassical Style

Neoclassic interior design is unique and conforms to the taste of only certain people. It is for people with delicate taste and willing to invest in timeless pieces for their house, as this design can be economically demanding. If you have the following preferences in interior design, the neoclassic design might be the right fit for you:

  • clutter-free décor in which all the elements are well proportioned to the setting,
  • inclination towards modest and natural colors or contrasts,
  • liking for classic statement pieces in the interior. 

Space and Respectability

The ideal space to execute neoclassic design would be a spacious room with large windows and high ceilings. This method would reflect elegance and luxury. Symmetry is given great importance to make the visuals look collected. Even when incorporating classic elements, they are kept muted and more subtle. Some standard classic finishes include paneling, molding, subtle floral wallpapers, wooden flooring, and white ceilings with stucco molding. Large framed mirrors and stucco molding on windows and doorways are also seen. Fireplaces add a touch of warmth and luxury to the space, which is what neoclassical design needs. As this originates from classic designs, most components stay the same. They are only expanded to look more straightforward and more modern. The foundation of luxury and elegance is strong. A statement piece is kept around which everything is built. This design demands spaciousness and symmetry. 

Lines and geometry are necessary.


When executing neoclassical design, the following must be kept in mind:

  • The mood needs to be cozy and comfortable. Light needs to be paid with special attention.
  • Statement artwork must be used in a large size instead of several smaller ones.
  • Mirrors are important. They need to be included as much as possible.
  • Lambrequin is a factor of neoclassical design, but they need to be simple. 

New Classical Interior Design

Respectability and CleanSpace are massive factors in neoclassical design. More space leads to better execution of the style. High ceilings and oversized windows are incorporated as they add luxury, openness, and stylishness. This element of neoclassical design might have methods not adapted to modern spaces, which tend to be smaller. These rooms are decorated with natural timber, stones, rocks, and marble floors. Persian carpets and rich textiles like silk, linen, and velour are major pieces, too. Due to the windows, the room is brightly lit by natural light, too, and looks more significant than it is. Neoclassical design is an amalgamation of Roman and Greek Architecture, along with design in luxurious palaces and the modern take on interior design. It takes wall detailing from the Greeks and Romans, marble flooring from palaces, and natural colors and symmetry from modern minimalist design. Restrained Décor: All the pieces in a space under neoclassic design must work together and give a complete look. That can be achieved by:

  • good choice of lighting; it is a good idea to have multiple sources like lamps and chandeliers,
  • making a statement with one large hanging on the wall instead of numerous,
  • installing mirrors,
  • using minimalist lambrequin, not extravagant,
  • choosing a small carpet in the room with a subtle pattern. 

Sophistication and timelessness are at the core of the neoclassic design. Different design elements have been categorized and discussed in light of the neoclassic design. Certain decoration pieces are accurate to the neoclassic design. For example, jugs, urns, pottery, mirrors, artwork, and flowers will work well in spaces. A theme is carried through these pieces regarding design and color palette. Similar to other elements, furniture also carries forward symmetry and geometry. While the neoclassic design originates from the Rococo style, the neoclassic method includes clean, straight legs in furniture, unlike the paws in the Rococo style. The design of the furniture is modern. The neoclassic design does not encourage intricacies but aims toward simplicity. Natural materials like wood, stones, and marble are used in their actual element. 

Carpets with subtle designs are also added.
