At the turn of the 19th-20th centuries, the architectural style of neoclassicism arose, which is characterized by lightness, straightforwardness, grace and classical proportions without luxurious excesses. It is characterized by pastel and natural shades of the color palette, a minimum of decorations, Egyptian, antique and Roman motifs.
SPECIAL NEOCLASSICAL STYLE
The integral elements of a neoclassical cottage are:
- columns and moldings in the form of floral patterns, clusters, flowers and fruits;
- semi-arches and arches-openings;
- delicate balustrades and tiling;
- wooden stairs and handrails;
- Spacious windows and a fireplace with a brick or wrought iron grill finish;
- Ancient Greek amphorae and jugs as decorative elements.
The interior of the premises is painted in gold, blue, beige and brown tones. Walls and openings are decorated with Greek or Roman draperies. For visual expansion, glass and mirror stained-glass windows are mounted. Curtains are decorated with lambrequins and hung on carved cornices.
Luxurious parquet made of natural wood (oak, mahogany, rosewood) and stucco on the ceilings create the effect of a palace hall, giving majesty to the living room in the cottage. Elegant furniture, which includes the most necessary, should not clutter up the space. The second challenge is functionality. Therefore, compact sofas, soft armchairs, a bureau in the form of a cylinder, low secretaries and sideboards with inserts emphasize the unity of style. For expensive finishing solutions, bronze is used: locks, handles, figurines. Marble, rich fabrics and crystal chandeliers complete the neoclassical look. It is in the high and spacious rooms of old-built cottages and new modern buildings that it is possible to withstand the canons of neoclassicism. design of cottages in the neoclassical style is nothing pretentious or austere, conservative or overly luxurious. The fusion of solutions is designed to create a cozy family home with a noble look, without focusing on the size of wealth. The cottage, where these solutions are implemented, is a single comfort zone. Natural materials and discreet, harmonious finishes, functional furniture create an elite symbiosis.
