I am looking forward to the movie Anna Karenina! I love epic films like this and the set design should be amazing! Set in the late 1800's it is steeped in Neoclassical style and I hope it brings this style of architecture back into the spotlight! One incredibly talented architect that influenced this style was Robert Adams.
I see many pieces of Neoclassical influenced design in this small photo!
Robert Adam (1728–92) was one of the most important British architects working in the Neo-classical style. He was a main force in the development of a unified style that extended beyond architecture and interiors to include both the fixed and moveable objects in a room. He incorporated design ideas from ancient Greece and Rome into his forms and decoration. His famous London houses include Kenwood House, Osterley Park and Syon House, this is according to Victoria Albert Museum. A great book available to see how neoclassism flourished with the help of Robert Adams, check out: The Country Houses of Robert Adams. Meanwhile I have found some examples of Neoclassical interiors I would love to share!
