A neoclassical bedroom spells elegance, style, and romance. From deeply decorative coving and chic wall molding to ornate bed frames and eye-catching bedside furniture, these spaces overspill with exquisite detail and bold beauty. It’s easy to jump to an image of a wainscot or boiserie-endowed headboard wall, a French bed, and frilly molding, but there are many ways to translate the neoclassical aesthetic. To help you develop your ideal take on the theme, we’ve put together a gallery of 40 designs with tips and accessories. We’ll tour an array of color palettes, a fabulous line-up of lighting ideas, bespoke bed designs, unusual neoclassical feature walls, striking additions, and quirky twists.
Make it all about the arches. If you’re lucky enough to have feature windows like these stunning arches, make them the protagonist of the story by keeping the rest of the decor minimal.
In this bedroom design, blue drapes brightly draw focus to the arched windows. A blue headboard wall rounds out the scheme.
