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.
Our second tour examines a home that embraces a diverse range of styles surrounding the neoclassical period, decorated with plenty of modern furniture and accessories throughout. The woodwork concepts are especially interesting – at times imposing, and at other times brightening the room with a light touch. Accessories remain simple, their understated forms brought to life with radiant materials. The entire dining arrangement would fit wonderfully into an art deco home, but they're not specifically neoclassical by any means. The dining chairs take an interesting approach to the neoclassical tradition of fluted-leg chairs, using a cool spiral structure that catches the eye immediately. The modern vases on the shelf are a little more loyal to the theme, given that the entire neoclassical revolution was highly inspired by Greek classical design – they take classic Greek pottery shapes and balance them out with a neoclassical sense of symmetry. The top vase, for instance, could be an interpretation of the olpe while the bottom is more like an amphora.
Design in the style of minimalism implies smooth surfaces, geometric shapes, straight clean lines and nothing more: only functional pieces of furniture, single color decoration, only the play of light instead of the fancy decorations. Minimalist interior is a complexly thought-out simplicity, rigor and ease, elegance without pretentiousness and practicality without congestion. Photos of minimalistic interior look like illustrations of the cutting-edge art magazine, devoted to secrets of creating a truly beautiful spaces.
