As the case is with other furniture styles, choosing the appropriate color scheme for your classic furniture is what adds a magic glamor to your rooms.
As the classic colors are used to convey the character of the classic style, they should convey a sense of the wealth, grace, and solemnity. That is why only soft and muted tones are selected.
This article will deal with the various color elements that best suit this royal style of furnishing.
Quiet, Warm Colors
The color palette most often preferred in the classic style is a calm, quiet palette. Shades of beige or cream are chosen most often, as well as soft shades of olive, sand and all the brown shades of wood.
The various colors and textures of wood are always most welcomed in Classic Style; from white to saturated dark.
The white colored wood is good, as it creates a softening muted and diffused lighting effect.
To further enhance the classic atmosphere, the color of your furniture can also be made to communicate an aging effect. In this case, the objects would acquire a unique charm, the charm of a mysterious, intriguing history.
No Flashy Colors
To avoid the sense of monotony that can prevail in a place with all neutral colors, you can include in some other, more vibrant colors.
But be careful! These colors should not be screaming. They should look rather “dusty” with a muted noble, deep feel.
We must not forget that the focal principle of the classics is harmony. Thus, the best choice to complement a light neutral palette would be colors like red, burgundy, garnet, emerald, jade, and royal blue.
Remember: there should not be anything flashy or juicy. Otherwise, it is not classic anymore.
A Touch of Gold
The final subtlety needed to make your classic interior just perfect is a touch of gold.
You can accomplish this by combining pastel colors with gold leaf.
This golden touch would emphasize the sense of luxury and solemnity of your classic style room.
On the whole, we need always to remember that harmony is above all here. Therefore, the color scheme of the walls should be keeping with that of your furniture, floor, ceiling, curtains, and accessories. You should keep everything in the same style and tone to impersonate the overall picture of a perfect Classic Place.
