Trend Alert – Bedrooms With Classical Order
In the Classical Interior, “The primary task of the order is to govern the proportions and ornaments of the wall, whether or not columns or pilasters actually appear. In many rooms, the full order is only implied in the design of the wall surface by the placement of openings, moldings, and paneling systems.” The Architecture of the Classical Interior by Steven W. Semes.
Now that closets are out and Dressing Rooms are in. Or closets with built in cabinets are in. The most beautiful designs dressing rooms have classical order. The order for the Dressing Room is established by the wardrobe it organizes and the panel design for the doors and drawers.
This Habersham Dressing Room has me asking the question what about the walls in the adjacent bedroom? A design should include the walls for both and it seems pretty clear that the look of most dressing rooms would translate well with classical order to the walls. So I have put together some images of classical dressing rooms followed by beautiful bedrooms walls treated with classical panels at a minimum.
Lovely architectural detailing with the narrow columns and a combination of wall panels with mirror and upholstery. Great use of space adding the narrow open shelves.
Paneled Doors are probably clothing storage.
Appreciate the effort.
So if all your clothing and accessories are in cabinets there is really no need for dressers in the bedroom. Bed side chests are necessary, but the bedroom is now open for seating, desk, etc.
This is more elegant and accomplished with very simple large panels.
