Modern Greek style interiors perfectly combine the traditions of our time and antiquity. It is this harmonious combination that makes the Greek style unique and solemn. This design requires following certain rules and nuances that will make your home a real island of refined antiquity in modern life.
The Greek style in the interior is notable for some laconism, simplicity and at the same time exquisite beauty in the design. That is why very often in such interiors there are columns, decorated at the top and bottom with patterns and various ornaments, the most popular of which is a meander. This element of the decor is highly desirable in the room, but if it is not possible to use columns, they can be painted on the wall or created using stucco. By the way, a variety of openwork baseboards and moldings on the ceiling would be very appropriate in this interior.
It should be considered that the room in the Greek style must have high ceilings. Without this important nuance, the entire decor may lose its meaning. Various plasterboard ceiling structures are welcome, which will visually add light to the room and focus on the shining chandelier.
Walls can be plastered and painted only in light colors. The best solution would be textured finish, which will add to the interior austerity and simplicity. Sometimes you can combine the plaster with a crude stone or similar tiles.
The floor could be made at your discretion. The tile with the Greek ornaments will have the most harmonious look.
The most popular colours in interiors of Greek style are white, blue, light green and light yellow.The key element is that they must be soft and natural. You can combine them to your liking.
Simple functional furniture made of natural wood is preferred in Greek style. The main condition for choosing is that it should be comfortable, simple, but made with high quality.
An important thing is that Greek style never allows furniture upholstery made of velvet or natural leather.
There are not many flowers, plants in pots, placed everywhere, in Greek style. These decorative elements are used only in small quantities. In such interiors it is also not accepted to hang all windows with curtains. They are certainly used, but mainly in the bedrooms, where bright light can cause inconvenience to housemates.
Antique Greek ornaments are popular in any decorative elements. They may be present on a picture frame or as a painting on the walls.
A part of the world famous Greek mythology will definitely find a place in this interior. Her embodiment can be statuettes of animals or characters, their depiction in paintings or mythical motifs in other decorative elements.
It is very important to remember that the Greek style does not accept the presence of carpets in the room. Here they will be inappropriate.
The splendor of ancient beauty combined with asceticism and a certain simplicity of design harmoniously combine in the Greek style, thanks to which you will be able to bring into your home a piece of Greece and plunge into its beautiful world.
