Neoclassic design - what is it?

Neoclassic design - what is it?

There's a reason we continue to 'reinvent' this trend called Neoclassicism and why we truly love it here at Republic Home - because of it's timeless charm.   

Neoclassical interior design combines classical architecture and design elements with modern sensibilities. This style is characterised by its use of clean lines, muted colours, and a focus on symmetry and balance. Neoclassical interior design is perfect for those who want to create a sophisticated and elegant space that is both timeless and contemporary.

One of the key features of neoclassical interior design is its use of symmetry. This means that everything in the space is balanced and harmonious. This can be achieved through the use of pairs of furniture, artwork, and other decorative elements. For example, two identical chairs placed on either side of a fireplace or a pair of matching lamps on a console table can create a sense of balance and symmetry.

In terms of colour, neoclassical interior design favours muted, earthy tones such as beige, cream, and soft greys. These colours create a calm and relaxing atmosphere that is perfect for a sophisticated interior - however pops of colour is what makes the look contemporary and add interest and contrast to the space.  Brightly coloured rugs or artwork can add a bold statement to an otherwise neutral room.

Neoclassical interior design favours clean lines and simple shapes. This means that furniture and other decorative elements are often understated and minimalist in design. However, this does not mean that the space lacks personality - instead, the focus is on quality and craftsmanship, with each piece carefully selected for its beauty and function.

A key feature of neoclassical interior design is the use of classical elements such as columns, arches, and pediments. These architectural details add a sense of grandeur and elegance to the space, while also providing a nod to classical design.

This trend favours pieces that are both functional and beautiful. This means pieces such as sofas, chairs, and tables are often upholstered in luxurious fabrics such as velvet or silk, and feature elegant details such as carved legs and arms.

We agree that neoclassical interior design is a sophisticated and elegant style that is perfect for those who appreciate classical design but also want a modern twist.

By using clean lines, muted colours, and a focus on symmetry and balance, we can help you can create a space that is both timeless and contemporary.
