If you decide to design your bedroom in a classic style, then you will not regret with the choice, this is evidenced by the photos of possible design options presented below.
The main features of the classic style
The interior of the bedroom in a classic style is dominated by clear geometric shapes. They are viewed in all elements: from a small sconce standing on a bedside table to an impressive panel on the wall. You can see this if you look at the photo.
Classics do not allow excessive pomp and pretentiousness. Nobility and luxury must be combined with refinement. This is the perfect recipe for this classic interior. The interior of the bedroom in a classic style is easy to identify in the photo in design magazines. It is characterized by:
- The predominance of light beige shades that make the room visually larger;
- Many decorative elements in the decoration;
- Expensive carpeting;
- High-quality textiles;
- The absence of scattered elements, everything looks organic and appropriate;
- A luxurious bed with a headboard can be both a traditional rectangular shape and an unusual round one;
- Big room;
- Correct shape;
- An abundance of mirror surfaces, etc.
Classic design implies a symbiosis of several styles. This is a military and triumphal triumph of the Empire, and the luxury of Rococo, and the grandness and pretentiousness of the Baroque.
The classic does not allow asymmetry, all elements must be ordered, be a whole. There is no place for randomness and fragmentation. Such an interior does not tolerate contrasts. Warm pastel colors are advantageous for him.
An abundance of wood is welcome. This furniture, and floors, and walls, and the ceiling. Preferred valuable wood species: oak, wenge, rosewood. The tree is well combined with gold or bronze.
Trying to observe all the canons of the classical style, it is important not to make the bedroom look like the exposition of the museum room of Louis XIV. A person should be comfortable in the room in which he spends one third of his life.
If you look at the photos of classic interiors, you will notice perfectly smooth walls that adorn:
- Decorative rock;
- Venetian plaster;
- Ceramic products;
- Art painting;
- Columns with a portico, decorated with embossed carvings;
- Friezes, moldings and borders.
Wallpapers should choose a good quality, such will last a long time, do not fade from the sun, they are well joined to each other, creating a single canvas. Restrained wallpaper with a stylized pattern always look appropriate. Small gold blotches are permissible. There should be no flashy shades.
If you are a happy owner of a spacious room, then you can order a wall painting. This can be either a simple vegetative ornament, or whole narrative compositions. Architectural and landscape sketches are welcome. On the wall, which is adjacent to the head of the bed, relief columns will look spectacular. They will be a highlight, will give additional height and elegance to the bedroom. Such a decision will turn the room into royal chambers. However, it is worth preserving harmony. It is important to maintain a balance and not turn the refined classic style into vulgar kitsch.
When a person enters a room, the first thing that catches the eye is not the walls, but the floor. For a classic interior, the following types of flooring are used:
- Linoleum. One of the most affordable options for registration of floors. Modern linoleums are not inferior in quality and appearance to more expensive materials, and in practicality even superior. There are imitations of ceramics, parquet, wood. Light shades, for example, under bleached oak, advantageously emphasize all the elements of the interior and increase the space;
- Laminate flooring, which has become popular in recent years and does not lose its leading position in the market of building materials. It combines low cost and attractive appearance;
- Marble, whose mirror shine attracts the eyes. This coating looks very impressive, will please with its durability, but for the bedroom is not quite suitable. It is worth resorting to a marble covering at registration of the hall, kitchen or a drawing room;
- Parquet is an eco-friendly material. 80% of all photos illustrating luxury apartments are exactly parquet. It is practical, but requires special care. This option is suitable if you are not short of money.
The central place is occupied by a large double bed. Under it are selected all the other elements of the furniture. To make the interior look holistically worth paying attention to the ready-made bedroom sets. In the photo catalogs of furniture factories you can see a variety of sets for bedrooms, for every taste and wallet.
It is preferable to choose furniture from expensive woods. Art forging, from which the upholstered furniture legs are made, will add extra elegance and aesthetics. Thin ornate supports, on which the volume armchair fitted by beautiful fabric is located, look advantageous. Visually it will seem that it is floating in the air. The photos below show this.
The cabinet model should be a hinged, fashionable wardrobes wisely used only in modern interiors. On each side of the bed is placed a small bedside table, this once again confirms the basic principle of the classic interior - symmetry. Women especially like the idea to install a chest of drawers, dressing table or dressing table. They can store personal items or use as a platform-stand for flowers, dishes, lamps, etc.
In the photo of the bedrooms you can see such an unusual piece of furniture as puffs. To place them, the foot of the bed is suitable, and the small size ottoman is so mobile that it will look organically anywhere in the room.
Large space gives unlimited flight of fantasy. On the same territory can be a sleeping place and a couch or sofa. Next to them is a floor lamp and a coffee table. This option will appeal to those who like to spend leisure time with a book in their hands.
Shades of furniture can be varied, depending on individual preferences. The main thing is that they are warm or imitate wooden surfaces (in the event that the furniture is not solid wood). Professional designers argue that the walls should be a couple of tones lighter than the furniture.
Satin, silk, velvet - these are the fabrics that you should pay close attention to in the store. They must be from natural fibers. Upholstery can not be combined with the color of the walls. A rich color palette can ruin the whole idea.
In textiles it is preferable to use the following shades:
- Pomegranate, etc.
Even if you have decided on the color you like, you should not forget about the texture of the fabric. Dense fabrics from which curtains are made not only will decorate a window opening, but also will protect the room from hit of sunshine. When choosing a tulle guided by the model with a noble matte sheen. Properly selected curtains visually increase the space. A miniature floral pattern looks good in small rooms. This is true for those who have a small bedroom area. Using the design of multi-colored curtains, you can play with natural light. If the windows of the room are facing south, then bright ornaments will suit you. Monochrome curtains are ideal for the north side.
The use of genuine leather does not go beyond the classical style. Many reject this material on moral and ethical convictions. Fortunately, modern artificial leather is a little inferior to natural. It has similar characteristics.
The final touch will be the decoration of the room with a classic carpet. With this element can not be miscalculated. Carpet is an essential attribute of a luxurious interior. Moreover, it is very practical: it's nice to get up in the morning and feel the enveloping softness of the carpet under your feet.
The cover should be combined with the color palette of curtains. In addition, it is important to remember that the more interesting and intricate the design of the bed, the easier it should be the appearance of the bedspread.
Best suited muffled light. Lighting should be warm, comfortable for the eyes. It should be limited to one chandelier, located in the center of the ceiling. Niches can be equipped with lighting, it will add airiness to the room. Classic style does not require a lot of light sources.
Suitable chandelier made of metal, but an important condition is the presence of a shade of gilding or bronze spraying.
A large theater chandelier, decorated with flowing elements, can be hung in a hall or a living room. The bedroom should get by less extravagant models. For added convenience, it is worthwhile to equip the light sources next to the bed, so that the switch is always at hand. Wall sconces will perfectly cope with this task.
Comfort and atmosphere
The interior design of the bedroom in a classic style will be considered inferior, if not to bring into it the elements of decor. All the most important is in the details. It can be paintings in bronze frames, which depict landscapes or still lifes. Figurines, flowerpots, floor lamps, caskets, indoor plants - all this should be used when decorating a bedroom. Figures from plaster or porcelain will successfully fit into a harmonious ensemble of decorative elements. In the bedroom interior classics of the genre is the placement of photos of loved ones or happy moments of your life on the bedside table or dresser. Such solutions introduce additional warmth and comfort, thanks to them and creates a unique atmosphere of the home.
The classics in the interior is a universal thing, it can be adapted to any needs. In its original form, the classic style was designed only for spacious rooms and not for the small bedrooms of modern apartments. But the realities of today dictate completely different conditions. Few people can boast apartments exceeding 70 sq. M. To increase the space, professional designers advise to adhere to the following recommendations:
- Identical shades of curtains and walls. It is better to avoid dense and heavy curtains. For these purposes, well suited air tulle;
- Do not clutter up the window sill. A large window makes it possible to better penetrate the natural color. The latter, in turn, is able to literally expand walls;
- Use furniture that stands on thin legs;
- Focus on neutral shades in the design;
- Don't underestimate the important role of mirror elements;
- Floor-to-ceiling book racks will perfectly cope with the task of visually enlarging a room;
- The stereotype that the furniture must be placed along the walls, has long been obsolete. Use the entire room to house furniture;
- Equip openings with high doors.
This is not all design solutions. Remember that conciseness, simplicity and even a certain asceticism should become your main assistants in arranging a small living space in a classic style.
