Dramatic window treatments. To really bring home the traditional style, make sure to include dramatic floor-to-ceiling window treatments like the ones in this room decorated by Salvesen Graham. They can be pleated or not, have valances or not, and use tiebacks or not - but make sure they go all the way from the floor to the ceiling in order to get the full effect.
Refined elegance, There’s no style that lends itself to elegance and sophistication better than traditional style. Just take this room by Rinfret Interiors as an example. Balance and symmetry are subconsciously pleasing to the eye, and when combined with luxurious fabrics, refined colors, and delicate architectural detailing it creates an elegant style that will stand the test of time.
Then look inside the fireplace. The brick firebox is laid in a herringbone pattern. Subtle. The fauteuil facing the fireplace is a taupe velvet cut to create a 3D swirl pattern. And both the sofa and the club chair opposite it play the texture game with their small-weave diamonds. With the exception of the decorative pillows, the only non-textured pattern is at the windows. A tone-on-tone. Quiet. Elegant.
