Lightness and elegance of a Renaissance style living room: 6 steps to create the perfect atmosphere

Here are 6 style steps to follow to recreate the wealthy and sumptuous atmosphere of a Renaissance furniture scene:

  1. Create a customized mood board
  2. Decorate the walls
  3. Choose the finest fabrics to upholster your sofa, armchairs, chaise longue and footstools
  4. Choose elaborate coffee tables and bookcases
  5. Choose elegant decorating lighting
  6. Top off the room with furnishing accessories that match your style

Let’s delve deeper into each step.


1. Create a customized mood board

Creating a customized mood board will help you outline the final look you want for your Renaissance style living room right from the start.

To perform this first step correctly, keep in mind the typical aesthetics of a Renaissance furniture scene:

  • A colour palette based on the juxtaposition of golden hues and warm walnut finish tones.

  • Furnishing elements with cymatia, friezes, columns, engravings: small details that characterize Renaissance opulence.


2. Decorate the walls

Walls are the background for the entire furnishing composition: this is why it’s essential that you focus on decorating the walls right from the start.

The fanciest rooms reach their maximum artistic expression with neutral or patterned wallpaper with classy motifs, such as arabesques and Moorish motifs with golden hues.

5. Choose elegant decorating lighting

In every furnishing context, decorative lighting plays an essential role. This is why you should opt for classy solutions, to enhance your Renaissance style furniture.

For general lighting, choose large ceiling lamps or crystal chandeliers. For accent lighting, choose stained or layered glass wall lamps with golden inserts.


6. Top off the room with furnishing accessories that match the furniture
