Use White to Freshen Things Up, Mele is a huge proponent of painting things white, especially furniture. “I think white modernizes and freshens,” he says. “People are afraid of their old grandmother's found furniture, but their forms are so fabulous and remain timeless. White just gives furniture a contemporary personality, I think. A fresh youthful spirit.” To strike the right color balance in the home's formal dining room, Mele had the dining chairs bleached white from the original brown. Strike a Color-and-Pattern Compromise, When dialing up the pattern, it's sometimes best to dial down the color to achieve a calmer, less chaotic effect. When designing the home's master bedroom, Mele started with a bold, Matisse-esque pattern and made his color choices, or lack thereof, from there. “I just wanted to use that pattern everywhere and not break it up with different colors or patterns,” he says. To that end he refrained from introducing any of the vibrant colors he used on the home's ground floor. “I wanted it to feel a little calmer, quieter, even though it's not a calm, quiet fabric.
This neoclassical had been prevalent in the 18th century but this style has found its way back in a new interpretation from the today's designers. Today it is more of an interpretation of classic furniture combined with gay and colorful decorations enabling the designers to create grandeur and elegance at one and the same time. Simple straight line ceilings, showcasing formality and elegance have become elements of utmost importance. Different material like horse hair, leather flooring, silk damask, curtains and lacquered glass in highlighting are used with a designer touch to achieve opulence. The oversimplification of trends with the classical touch tends to be sustainable and seems that it is here to stay.
