A house decorated in the Renaissance interior design can evoke an aura of elegance and class in a way that no other style of decor can. Whether it’s a room or an entire house, it’s easy to incorporate the look of Old World elegance with all the modern comforts and technology of home. In Renaissance interior design, symmetry and geometry were the prevailing guiding principles in construction. Renaissance interior design also were rich in color and detail. Large aesthetically pleasing paintings were hanging off the walls. In some cases, entire walls were turned into beautiful form of art. Heavy furnishings in dark wood and leather are often considered Renaissance interior design. Furniture was chosen as much for its artistic look as for the functional nature of the piece. Hand-carved scrollwork and embellishments on legs, arms and backs of chairs, as well as on doors, legs and tops of tables and cabinets, all generate the look of this era’s furnishings. Rich upholstery and leather accents are also prevalent.
