Go Classy!!

Classical interior design is a blend of both Greek and roman interior design. This designing basically deals with perfect harmony, balance and order.  Giving your interiors a classical look means bringing them much closer to the earlier period when interior designs like Rococo, Victorian and many such were in trend. Classical interior designing has its own aura and is one which never goes out of style. So if you so wish to style your place in a more traditional manner here are some classical interior designing ideas that will surely help you in your interior décor.

Order, Symmetry and Balance: Order symmetry and balance are the key features of classical interior designing. If you have atleast one mirror in a room make sure to balance it with another. Also keep in mind to continue some features of a room to another. Do not decorate every room with a different style all together, this will surely lead to asymmetry.

A Focal Point: A large mirror, any wooden statue, a beautiful piece of wooden art or a beautiful wooden table can act like one of the focal points. Keep in mind that when you are creating a focal point, thus other accessories in the area should be in accordance with it.  For example a featured fire place flanked on either side by matching armchairs with an ornate mirror above can help you give your room a classic look.

Natural Colours and Materials: Hues common in classical interior designing style are basically inspired by nature. Shades of yellow, blue, green and brown, even some softer muted colours such as terracotta, grey and pink are very much in trend. When going for whites if you wish to have a more authentic classical look try and go for off-white but if you wish to give your interiors a contemporary feel choose bright white.

Elegant Fibres: Classical style itself represents elegance. While selecting the classical fibre keep in mind that they are not overly ornate or attention grabbing. Velvet, canvas and cotton are the fabrics basically used in classical interior designing. You can complement it with wooden, stone or marble flooring that goes well with the classical environment.
