Always eye-catching and impressive, neoclassical interiors create a sophisticated character and an air of perfection. Classical architectural details make a stunning backdrop for the simplicity of modern furnishings, and add a density of decoration that is much more than momentarily mesmerising. The first of our three home designs, visualised by Yurii Chaikovskyi and Nina Semenkova, is an impressively high-ceilinged home with elegant arches and rich muted green accents. Our second home design features a double-height living room with a colourfully eclectic flair. The last of our tours takes place in an all-white home interior where classical details create deep borders of decorative coving and boiserie around a counteractive core of ultra-modern pieces.
This incredibly spacious holiday home is Villa Lago Maggiore, located on a picturesque plot in Italy. The impressively high-ceilinged luxurious living room is airy and sunkissed, and features classical architectural arches of huge proportions.

Our second home design begins in a double-height neoclassical living room with a distinctive eclectic character.
