1. Setting the right color palette

Every self-respecting interior design project begins with a decisive first step, that is setting the right color palette for the furnishing context. In this case, the neoclassical style calls for a range of soft, neutral colors such as cream, ivory, gold and silver.

Shades of this type add aesthetic depth to your dining room.

For this reason, we recommend that you create a furnishing composition perfectly in tune with the color standards typical of this style.


2. Painting the walls or decorating them with wallpaper

To start decorating your dining room correctly, you should start from the walls.

Choose according to your preference: paint using pastel shades or wallpaper in a neoclassical style with classic style patterns or arabesques).

In both cases, these decorative solutions will immediately express elegance.
