The classic living room finds its originality in its ability to harmonize all of the elements of interior design, in a spacious environment that combines period architecture with all of the accessories in the house.

Classic style can work in harmony with existing decor and design and works well in the dining room, kitchen, hallways, bathrooms and bedrooms.

However, today we are going to focus on the classical living room and see just how beautiful it can be!

1. Impressive lighting

This magnificent light perfectly matches the classic style of the living room with its large circular ceiling and original lampshade. 

The harmony of the colours, the choice of furniture and the arrangement of the design all contribute to a very impressive living room.

We also want to point out the beautiful array of paintings on the wall.

2. A large mirror

This beautiful living room by interior designers blackStones, is enhanced by the large mirror, which reflects light throughout the room. 

To enhance this sensation, the designers have opted for light tones. Don't you love the high ceilings and earthy colour palette?

3. Spacious

This spacious living room thus creates a very appealing setting, while the large mirror and lavish details make for a classic design.

To complete this look and feel, the stunning lights enhance every detail.
