As part of a new series we are trying out here on the SOS blog, I will be taking you through history.

We’ll look at interior design elements in the kingdoms (and their palaces) of the past.

And we will examine the modern day projects that pull inspiration from them.

In the end you might even find something that helps you do what Rene Finberg tries to do for her clients “make their home into a palace – their favorite place to be.”

This is Palace Interiors!

a guide to learning from historical interior design


Today’s trip through time will take us back, some 2,500 years back, to the neo-Babylonian empire.

And you can also see how a modern firm applies the ancient style.
