With the countess design styles and themes available, choosing a specific scheme can be mind boggling. From art deco, Victorian, oriental, Zen or even a simple country appearance, you may not even know where to begin. If you are going for a look that is unique and elegant at the same time you may want to consider Egyptian interior.
Egyptian culture has always been so mysterious that study of their life and overall style has brought out a passion in many who have a peaked interest in bringing their history to light. This curiosity has transcended to interior design. Some would like to see, as well as feel the grandeur and luxury of a home inspired by this theme as it can make one actually feel like they are in Egypt. Décor can cover the entire house, including the bathrooms. Others prefer concentrating on decorating a particular room, usually a bedroom, home office or study.
Not limited to homes, this type of design has been applied in corporate offices as well. There are companies that keep their office environment fun by designating rooms by theme. The low lighting, magnificent fixtures and subdued ambience also appeals to restaurants who want to give their customers that unique dining experience.
To bring an authentic feel to Egyptian design, fixtures are often based on actual artifacts. Aside from the obvious use of pyramids and illustrations that depict their ancient past, there are many other things that make its design truly genuine. Elaborate items made from wrought wood and metalwork or blown glass are representations of Egyptian elements and can be quite costly. Decors usually include ornate and hand carved wooden furniture and complex geometrical patterns on lavish natural fabrics. Heavy baroque ornamentation and circular dark wooden chairs with hand painted Turkish accents demonstrate part of their rich history. Some even use expensive gold leaf to recreate that opulent period in time.
If you want to employ this tasteful type of plan, you may want to hire a professional who can determine the best way to bring all elements of design together. If you want to exercise your creative smarts, some research might be in order. Visit your local library or bookstore and obtain a book on Egyptian history and culture. You may be able to find some books on interior design as well. You can also search online and find out how you can blend past and present Egyptian design for a more modern look. As this country was invaded by the French in the late 1700′s, you can be sure that their culture has been infused with French influences. Whichever way you decide to go, you will be able to enjoy the sense and splendor of Egypt.
