Neoclassical interior design was originally based on classical home décor of Greece and Rome. Today, neoclassical design remains a favorite of many homeowners due to its timeless charm.
The colors in the neoclassical style are generally mild: cream, gray, blue, yellow and green. Luster black, red, gold and silver are used mainly as patches of color to highlight the overall style. A gentle and pervasive flower theme creates a chic look from floor to ceiling.
The furniture in the neoclassical style is simple but symmetrical. Dark wood furniture is typical and rooms are embellished with beautiful ornaments, stone and marble floors, and Persian carpets. The fabrics are luxurious but not ostentatious – damask silk, brocade, linen, and velvet.
