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.
Dark and dramatic living room. Perhaps no style lends itself as well to drama as traditional style rooms. All it takes is a dark, rich wall color to enhance the inherent elegance and class. Toss a roaring fire in this room from Misiaszek Turpin Architects and you`ve got a recipe for a dramatically cozy space.
A room with warmth. In New York’s renowned Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse, designer Noel Jeffrey went against trend by allowing the living room’s original dark-stained woodwork to have its say. And it is the language of elegance.
