What should be the children's classic style?
All parents would like to see their children fully developed and versed in art. Therefore, it is possible to instill good taste in a child from an early age. This will help children, decorated in a classic style.
This style, which came to us from past centuries, offers to decorate all the rooms in one spirit. Therefore, before they were not much different from each other, except that the color scheme. Today, interior design for diversity is more condescending, so the children's room has somewhat transformed.
To begin, let us define, and what remains in the modern children's room in a classic style from the old days.
- Light colors for the design of all elements, except for the floor, it should be dark. The list of favorites - olive, milk, brown, pink, gold.
- On the floor - only parquet, with dark tones. It is impossible to spare money for materials, the classic style simply will not tolerate it. In addition to parquet, it is allowed to put a soft carpet of pastel colors, especially if the child is still very young.
- Gold-plated elements on the furniture, crystal chandeliers and stucco are welcome, but in limited quantities.
As you can see, there are no truly childlike features in the room. We can say that the interior of the nursery is entirely copied from the adult room.
And what should be the interior of a classic nursery today? It is equipped with a gaming and working area. He does not disdain with modern technology: a computer, laptop, gaming console and TV.
Modern children's advocates for environmental friendliness. It includes an abundance of natural materials - for furniture only the best wood, only the best and safe textiles, proven finishing materials, wallpaper and paint.

On the walls - wallpaper in bright colors. The interior should be moderately calm and positive, so that a harmonious personality develops in the child. You can combine wallpaper using horizontal wall divisions. The lower part will be darker, and the upper - light. As a material for finishing the bottom of the walls, you can use wood panels, which was typical of the classic English interior.
Tip: Pure colors are typical for the classic style: green, burgundy, gray, blue, yellow. This should be taken into account when designing furniture, walls and ceilings.
For a modern nursery, a suspended or suspended ceiling is permissible. Make a classic note in such a modern design will help the frame of stucco and neutral colors. Perhaps even the use of frescoes on the ceiling or on the walls. But in this case it is important not to overdo it, so that the room does not resemble a museum.
Floors, as mentioned above, it is better to issue wooden parquet. For a small child it will be appropriate to install a soft floor. And for games to lay a carpet with a soft nap.

For children's furniture in a classic style, natural materials and patterns are characteristic, not without sophistication. Basically the choice depends on the age of the child. For kids, you can provide a lot of small parts, pull-out drawers and soft pillows. From the glass at this age it is better to completely give up.
Of the obligatory guests in the interior should be present:
- a large bed;
- bedside table;
- chest of drawers or wardrobe;
- a desk with a comfortable chair;
- for girls - a dressing table with a mirror and a pouf.
As for the bed, it is desirable that it was a canopy. This option will delight girls, but for boys it is worth making an exception. The bed will be decorated in calm but majestic colors. Be sure to have a bedspread and two pillows. The legs are wooden, carved. The headboard is also made of wood, without upholstery and pretentious elements.

Lack of weight is the real enemy of the classic style. Therefore, all furniture should be harmoniously and tastefully supplemented with textiles. If there is a sofa and an armchair in the room, then they should be in a case of calm, neutral tones with floral or other unexpressed ornament. Cloth on the desktop is undesirable only because of practicality.
The window in the classic interior of the nursery should be decorated accordingly. The bottom layer is light monochromatic pastel tulle color, the top one is heavy, nice curtains or drapes, matched with a golden silk cord. Will add majesty and lambrequins over the main curtains.
Such an interior, moderately luxurious and fairly simple, will help the child feel like a hero of a real fairy tale. High-quality, tastefully selected furniture and calm colors will help him diversify and teach to appreciate the true beauty.
