Back to black – the kitchen tones down the wood theme and reembraces the matte black theme. Here, you can see fabulous tiles taking up the spaces between the rural-style windows. That fabulous window shade style is commonly referred to as ‘Swedish blinds' and they're easy to make at home. The dinnerware is lovely and minimalistic, easily standing out from the rest of the decor. Who wouldn't want to get dressed up more often with a gorgeous dressing room like this one? It contains a stool large enough for two, a vanity for freshening up, an incredible amount of storage. Art Deco was considered a type of neoclassical revival – and the art deco tones are definitely strong in this space. As an aside, it's rare to see a window in a dressing room but it really enhances the atmosphere of this one.
Finish: If your piece of furniture has any exposed wood, the stain or finish color is an important point to consider. Many pieces can be altered dramatically by the color of the finish. You can easily take a chair from traditional to contemporary by changing a cherry stain to a black paint. Likewise, a mahogany piece painted white will instantly appear more feminine. Fabric: Lighter colored fabrics can be appropriate for a formal living room, foyer, or bedroom. However, if this is a piece of furniture that will be used frequently, it is suggested to choose a slightly darker fabric. The Unexpected: Look for furniture that has an element of the unexpected or has some personality. The overall shape of the piece could be a little unconventional, or maybe there's some interesting tufting, or nail head detail. Either way, your personal style should be reflected in the piece of furniture that you choose.
With so much emphasis on sleek modern spaces, it's nice to enjoy a little extravagant inspiration from time to time. The two homes explored below share many features with neoclassical design, an elegant and intricate style that appeared in the mid-1700s and retained its popularity until the early 1800s. Neoclassicism arose in direct response to the perceived busyness and frivolity of the rococo style – making it the minimalism of its time. Neoclassicism was a revival of Greek Classicism, and interestingly enough, Art Deco was too – both styles share roots despite having opposite intentions. First, let's look at a space that takes an updated approach to the classic Louis XVI style, titled Chateau Margaux. It has a dark and comfortable theme yet avoids feeling imposing. In fact, the darker colors actually help the sophisticated space feel even more comfortable and intimate. It's a truly incredible take on neoclassical era design: not a reproduction but a very creative interpretation.
