Mansion project – interior design in traditional style

We are pleased to present you a special project in which the interior designers from Studio inSIGN have worked with passion to render through a successful concept an unmistakable design: that of the boyar mansions of former times created by using a mix of styles like traditional and rustic, combined with authentic romanian motifs or religious motifs.

It is about an eclectic mansion project, a combination between the traditional Romanian and the traditional Austrian, with religious and rustic romanian motifs.

The mansion comprises several types of spaces and functions, as follows: restaurant, apartment with bathroom, rooms with bathrooms and attic. The common note of these spaces are the typical finishes of a boyar mansion and the elements of traditional and rustic architecture.

This space continues the line of design used for restaurant, which I presented here, but at the same time contains some original elements. An example would be the treatment of storage spaces above the bathroom and in the living room. This was inspired by the traditional “houses”. The living room stove gives the room a slightly retro look.

The specialists Studio inSIGN have proposed an ancient floor, accessorized by carpets that have traditional romanian motifs, and for the ceiling they have chosen wooden beams. For the walls, our designers used white brick and plaster, following the design concept in the restaurant.

This room acquires a warmer and more relaxing note by using an antique wood paneling at the end of the bed. The painted Romanian motifs are on the cornice that connects the ceiling and the walls.

The antique frescoes represent the proposed accent to introduce the clients in the story and atmosphere of these rooms.

The bathroom continues the design style of the room, so we will find romanian motifs on the finishes of the walls, which integrate this space in the general design.

The rooms – interior design

The concept of room design focuses on brick and wood finishes, decorated with frescoes and lighting.

The dark wood furniture typical of the boyar mansions brings a note of authenticity to the space. Regarding decorations, they chose as the main piece an antique icon placed above the bed.

Attic design

Attic design

An interesting detail of the designing is the color accent introduced in the upholstery of the chairs and armchair, used as an accent.

Bathroom concept design

The concept of interior design combines materials such as brick and antique plaster. At the top of the countertop from the sinks, the interior architects inserted a ceramic portion to protect the walls. For the floor, they chose an antique-type ceramic finish.

The interior architects carry out various types of interior design projects: hotel projects, restaurant projects, also historic houses projects and house restorations.

Mansion restaurant – eclectic design project

In this article we will reveal the story of a restaurant design project, as part of a larger project – a traditional style mansion.

The design of this project was inspired by the old noblemen houses. In other words, the finishing materials, the furniture and all the accessories were chosen so as to faithfully reproduce those elements that we can still admire in restored mansions, historical monument houses or traditional houses.

The concept of design was created by our interior architects focusing on materials such as tile, brick, decorative paint or wood. For example, for the floor, our specialists used rectangular cut tiles, arranged in herringbone style (at 45 degrees).

The designers have proposed the apparent brick and antique plaster for the treatment of walls, typical of the boyar mansions. The passing from one material to another is gradual, so that the final finish looks like a natural peeling paint.

At the same time, this gradual transition gave to the designers the opportunity to highlight brick and arches. The plaster blends perfectly with the carpentry of dark wood.

The walls show special details, such as the cincture in the area between the ceiling and the wall with windows or the painted details (frescoes) of religious inspiration. These decorative details were made at the request of the client who offered images to the designers as model.

Our interior architects brought to light certain elements that had previously been a drawback, for example, the two poles that they transformed into attractions by “dressing” them with natural stone or plaster. They also added some wooden beams to create an authentic atmosphere.

A successful combination is the semi-austere carpentry, the glazed windows with painted stained glass and the embroidered semi-transparent curtains.

The lighting solutions proposed by our architects emphasize the boyish aspect of the room. These are inspired by the old wooden chandeliers. The architects has chosen two types of wall sconces.

In the concept of interior design was included wooden furniture of essence enclosed in the style of the manor houses, complete with textiles. The traditional Romanian motifs can be found on the carpets in the traffic and fireplace area.


The introduction of the fireplace and the two armchairs was done in order to create a warm and welcoming appearance. In the dining room area, the designers created a more intimate ambience with the help of a slightly different furniture.

The interior architects Studio inSIGN treated the whole space like a museum, here being found: typical tableware shelves, handmade elements such as a sewing machine and traditional clothing items placed in showcases and enriched with a red velvet finish and LED light perimeter that highlight them.

This restaurant project represents a mix of styles, from traditional Austrian to traditional Romanian, with rustic style textiles, elements with religious motifs that together make up a decor with a special atmosphere as in the interiors of the boyar mansions of yesteryear.
