If you are looking to create a living room that is completely different than what anyone else has, then a neoclassic theme may be perfect for you. It is not very often you see this theme anywhere other than an interior decorating magazine. This could be partially because many people do not quite know what it is, and those who are a fan of theme have no idea how to go about creating the right look.
Start with the Walls
If you were creating any other themed space, brown paint would probably not be on your supply list. However, in a neoclassic room, a rich, deep, chocolaty brown is an essential. Do not worry about the dark walls making the entire room dark, because there will be enough light accents to brighten it up. Paint all the walls this deep velvety color, and then use a bright white on trim, window sills, and door frames. If you have a fireplace mantle this can be painted white, too.
Your furniture selection can really make or break this look. The pieces should be simple, and although not modern, you do not want them to scream vintage either. A pair of wheat-colored, petite, rolled-arm chairs will be perfect. If you do not absolutely need a coffee table, then skip it. A couple of end tables in a rich mahogany or cherry wood will look stunning.
