Lately, I have noticed a trend in decor and design making a statement. Neoclassical design, or what I like to call ancient civ class chic, is popping up everywhere. It is that well traveled look that used to be only for the homes of professors and anthropologists. BUT now anyone can get this look by either hunting through your relatives attics (always my first choice), scouring antique shops, or shopping on-line!
This look could be real antiquey looking fast so watch out for using too much. Also add in some modern pieces to break it up or a nice lacquered item with clean edges.
Does anyone do laid back Neoclassical better than Mark D. Sikes right now? He is like having a cup of tea in a museum garden. I am fascinated with him. Here are a few photos from his book to copy, reinvent, make yours!
