Timeless interior design ideas
The classical meanwhile has so many colloquial meanings that one can quite difficult to distinguish these from each other. The word “design classic” stands for models that remain current long after they have been created. But that has little to do with the style of classical music. Both meanings should not be confused with each other.
This article is only to clarify what classical music means in terms of stylistics. Furthermore, we would like to help you understand the term “modern classic” better. This is about introducing the forms of the classic style into modern design, without the interior design ideas appearing conservative and old-fashioned.
Interior ideas that inspire us today
The classic in detail
These are the typical features and characteristics of the classic style:
Panels of noble wood species;
Wall Murals: They may have been executed in a classic nuance or show traditional design patterns.
The wallpapers could continue to imitate different textiles.
Decorative plastered walls
Wall design with matt wall paint;
Wall and furniture design with expensive textiles and materials: These can be velvet or satin.
To the last point we would like to give some explanations. During the period of Classicism, the wall design with textiles came back behind them with paper wallpaper. It was very rare that you only used fabric for decoration. The combination of textile and wall paper beds was quite common.

Decorative elements of the classic
There are some decorative patterns and other elements that are considered classic trademarks. These are, for example, paintings in the form of frescoes from the 18th century. Mostly we have to deal with scenic images in this case.
For the classical wall design, it is also typical that certain techniques are used to form reliefs and other sculptural and architectural elements. In this case, one chooses the monochrome color design, for example in cuttlefish or gray.

The decoration with antique elements is another characteristic of the classic interior design. A typical example are the decorative pillars and pilasters in the Greek or Roman style.
The design of the floor
When designing the floor different types of wood could be used. Furthermore, marble is typical in beige, pink and white. The white granite also goes well with the classic style. You can also use ceramic tiles that mimic the texture of marble or wood.

The design of the ceiling
When designing the ceiling, choose either white or another light shade for classic style. Artful painting, as well as the elaborate design with friezes and pilasters, is also very typical.
Bright, neutral and warm colors are typical of the traditional design of the classic interior design. These are all nuances of cream, beige, sand, olive and brown.
The color contrasts are rather not recommended. It’s best to use different nuances in one and the same color to create bold effects.
Natural materials are preferred
