18th - early 19th century

Classicism (French classicisme, from Latin classicus - exemplary) is an artistic and architectural style.
Classicism in architecture replaced the pompous rococo, a style that, since the middle of the 18th century, has already been widely criticized for being overly complicated, pompous, mannered, for complicating the composition with decorative elements. During this period, the ideas of enlightenment began to attract more and more attention in European society, which found its reflection in architecture. Thus, the attention of architects of that time was attracted by the simplicity, laconicism, clarity, calmness and severity of antique and, above all, Greek architecture.

A style that looks to the ancient heritage as the norm and the ideal model. Typical: geometric, regular shapes, restrained decor, expensive quality materials. The interior is not overloaded with details, full of restrained dignity, taste and respectability, inspires peace and solidity. The classic style of the interior is made for a long time and is inherited.

Prevailing and trendy colors:

White, saturated colors; green, pink, purple with gold accents, sky blue.

Materials used:
Natural wood: walnut, cherry, Karelian birch. Inlaid parquet with various inserts of valuable rare wood species. Silver, porcelain, gilding, mother-of-pearl, bronze, stone, expensive fabrics, leather.
Classicism style lines: Strong repeating vertical and horizontal lines; bas-relief in a round medallion, flowing generalized drawing, symmetry.
The form:
Clarity and geometry of forms, statues on the roof - expressive pompous monumental forms.

Typical elements of the interior of classicism:
Restrained decor, round and ribbed columns, pilasters, statues, antique ornament, coffered vault.

Massive, stable, monumental, rectangular, arched.

Classicism windows:
Rectangular, elongated upward, with a modest design.

Classicism style doors:
Rectangular, paneled; with a massive gable portal on round and ribbed columns; possibly decorated with lions, sphinxes and statues.

Furniture of the era of classicism is solid and respectable, made of valuable wood species. The texture of wood is of great importance, acting as a decorative element in the interior. The pieces of furniture were often finished with carved inserts of precious woods. Decor elements are more discreet, but expensive. The shapes of objects are simplified, the lines are straightened. The legs are straightened, the surfaces become simpler. Popular colors: mahogany plus a light bronze finish. Chairs and armchairs are upholstered in fabrics with floral patterns.

Interior items:
Fireplace, various columns, daggers, stucco moldings, antique sculptures, paintings on the walls, silver slides, porcelain, many books. Chandeliers and lamps are supplied with crystal pendants and are quite massive in design.

Currently, the classicism style can be successfully used both in spacious halls and in small rooms, but it is desirable that they have high ceilings - then this method of decoration will provide the greatest effect.

To create an interior in a classic style, designers usually select appropriate fabrics, as a rule, bright, rich varieties of textiles, including tapestries, shiny taffeta and velvet, fit well into this theme.
A classicist bathroom looks chic and stylish. A bathroom design in this style assumes a spacious room with large ceilings. The most important thing is the bath itself. It is located on the podium or on bent legs.

Cast iron, marble or bronze bathtub. Soft lines, raised headrest. The classic color is white, the shape is round. Faucets in classicism style in gold, bronze, and copper.

The design of the bathroom is in the style of classicism, maybe in the spirit of an ancient bath, with the use of appropriate materials: marble, columns, stucco decorations.

For wall cladding, marble, natural stone, decorative plaster are used.

Bathroom cladding colors: light yellow, light gray, pink, blue and light orange, olive and dark green.
Decor in the style of classicism: cornices, paintings, columns, vases and large mirrors.

Fashion for modern styles changes from year to year. The classicism style will never go out of fashion, will not become old-fashioned, but will always be popular.
