Traditional Style 101

Traditional furnishings can hail from 18th century England, the French countryside or even the exotic lands of the East. Among the most popular traditional styles are British Colonial revival, 18th century English, 19th century neoclassical and French country. Here's how the traditional style breaks down:
Colors: Peach and green tones are balanced with aubergine and tan for a slightly floral but unfussy palette. These colors can be enhanced with bronze accents and warm wood tones for an inviting, comforting interior.
Windows: A tailored look takes over windows with a formal swag-and-panel combination. Panels are gathered loosely with tasseled cords. Fringe accents the swag treatment, adding a design detail to the scalloped edges.
Fabrics: A small print on a pillow pairs nicely with a sofa with an all-over floral pattern. Damask is a good choice for a traditional interior because the weave creates both a dull and a shiny texture that works well with a variety of trim, tassels and fringe.
Accessories: Still-life oil paintings, gilt frames and an emphasis on pairs lend a room a proper traditional feeling. To further the look, bring in a crystal chandelier, some silver candlesticks, and fresh or silk flowers in a grand vase.
