The traditional design style is both inviting and elegant. A traditional homeowner aims to achieve an aesthetic that is refined, but not stuffy.
Common colors include subtle neutral tones like faded yellows, beige, off-white hues and light blue. Typically found in a traditional home are soft fabrics like silk, cashmere and velvet. Windows are never left unadorned, but instead they are accessorized with valances and curtains tied back with roped tassels.
Classic patterns like damask and paisley are common in a traditional home, and floors are often covered by richly colored, oriental rugs. Wing-backed and/or tufted furniture, gold-leaf mirrors and large oil paintings in ornate frames are a few of the furnishings found in this elegant design style.
The finishes in a traditional home tend to lean towards the deeper end of the spectrum. Dark, but warm, wood tones like walnut and cherry are common. With Beauflor®’s advanced color technology, homeowners can have the beauty and elegance of traditional wood without the upkeep.
