Maximising Modernity In Transitional Neoclassical Interiors

Neoclassical decor first emerged in 18th-century Britain and France, drawing from classic Roman and Greek architecture and art. It originally highlighted ornamental columns and reliefs, gilted accessories, plush swags, and opulent furniture. As time moved on, the neoclassical interior style evolved to include chic modern pieces that gently meld with the classical influence. Now, the transitional neoclassical interiors that we feature here today have a bolder and sometimes more minimalist modernity driven through highly ornamental surroundings. The juxtaposition of uber contemporary against intricate classical detailing creates inspiring spaces that are firmly planted in the present, with a wistful glance over the shoulder to the elegant past.
