How to get the subtle neo-classic look right

Here's how to get your home looking opulent – but not ostentatious.

The classic look is perhaps the most conventional style to bring out opulence in a space. Think of gold finishes, gilded elements and crystal chandeliers. But today’s neo-classic opulence is more pared down and less obvious. As the saying goes: money talks, wealth whispers.

How to get the look:

  • Interior design

    1. It’s all about the balance.
