Napoleon – In 1804 Napoleon Bonaparte declared himself Emperor of France and his military and political leadership could be seen in everything French for the next 10 years – including France’s architecture and interior styling. The classical Roman and Greek designs remained the core of this era’s style but were advanced, so to speak, with military devices.
Crafted from heavy-duty materials for long-lasting durability and comfort, a quick spin through your home washer and dryer cleans them up and restores them to like-new. Their precision-cut patterns go on and off in seconds and don’t even require tools to install. If you know how to slip something on (a glove, for example), you’ve got all the skill you’ll need. Plus, many auto seat covers come pre-coated with a water-repellent treatment to protect your interior from liquids that would otherwise permanently soak in or stain the fabric of your car seats.
The classical arch became popular again, panel mouldings were simplified and walls were plain plaster or simply painted in neutral colours, such as grey. Symmetry found its place again and decorative devices came from classical figures, swags, garlands, laurel wreaths and urns. Flamboyance could still be seen in the beds where ostrich feathers adorned many a corona and the fabric of choice was the eye-boggling Toile de Jouy. (Take care when examining these fabrics as they often showed the events of the day in all their gory glory including the guillotining of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.)
A motorsport style exterior would not go very well with a luxury interior and the converse is also true, a motorsport interior would look out of place on a luxury car. A wide variety of gauge styles are available from chrome and polished housing to carbon fibre and even complete digital dashboards which look fantastic at night look the business. Even aircraft style heads up displays projected onto the windscreen are possible.
Glamour decor uses a lot of metallic elements: gold, silver, copper. Transparent home decor accessories can also work, such as transparent desk lamps, for example. Abstract art pieces made of metallic silver or gold will compose well with the surroundings. Even wall art can have some metallics in it. It’s all about excess.
