Trend Alert: Hellenistic Revival
For those who can't get enough of the throwback trends, you’re in luck because future interior trends are rewinding all the way back to Ancient Greece. This mass revival of Hellenistic design has everyone longing for luxurious, cozy details that will transform any home into a fantastical escape.
Here’s everything you need to know about the reemerging Ancient Greek aesthetic and how to pull it off in your space.
What is Hellenistic design?
Ancient Greece, mythology and classicism have long influenced architecture and design. Hellenistic interiors take inspiration from the years that spanned between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman Empire in 27 BC. This period is known for Greece’s conquests across Egypt, Asia and Persia, leading to a melting pot of different styles and cultures.
As a result, Hellenistic design is defined by characteristics of Greco-Roman art, sculpture and statue art and mythical representations. Hellenistic design seamlessly blends a luxe space and a wanderlust environment.
Timeless marble and unique pieces of stone, along with beveled details on kitchen cabinet fronts, dramatic feature lighting and neoclassical-inspired wallpapers, all can find their place in this style.
