Sophisticated living room, traditional design can be tricky, because if you use the wrong finishes it can quickly look dated. The main finishes to avoid are polished brass (too 80's) and chrome (too contemporary). Instead look for more muted metals that have a nice patina like the ones used in this traditional living room from Dayna Kaitlin Interiors. Think oil rubbed bronze and ever so slightly tarnished silver.
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.
Yellow and green living room, One of the trademarks of traditional design is (what some people consider to be) fussy details. These details are represented in this room by Gray Walker Interiors by the ruffled decoration at the top of the window treatments and the fringe at the bottom of the arm chairs. When used in moderation these types of embellishments add just the right amount of ornamentation. When it comes to traditional rooms a little fuss never hurt anyone!
