There is no way to add as much elegance and luxury to your home than with classic style décor and accompanying classic window treatments. Going big in every area of décor, from your furniture, architecture, colour palette, and your window treatments, will help you to achieve that beautifully classic and intricate style of décor you’re clamouring for.
Attention to detail
To achieve that stunning and classical theme of interior design, you need to pay great attention to detail and consider every point of your classic window treatments as well as considering the treatments as separate works of art. Fine detailing such as fabric trims, grand metallic tiebacks and the fold in the curtains or valances will create an illusion of grandeur and help you achieve the pinnacle of classic interior décor. Anything ornate and meticulously decorated will add instant allure to your window treatments, so be willing to add decorative items to your heavy and flowing drapes, valances, and floor to ceiling curtains with metallic trim. Heavily ornamented window treatments will add grandeur to the entire room, especially if you have more than one window and the bigger the better. Detailed and luxury pieces mean that the features require expense and time commitment to create, adding an air of classic luxe to your home. You might need to make an investment into classic window treatments, but if you do it correctly the result will be timeless and will be the most striking area of the room or home.
There are no rules with colour, although we recommend you stay away from bold and bright colours that instantly give off a modern vibe. Rich tones, jewel colours, and neutral colours work best, with flashes of metallic shades for glamour. Sticking to an intense and dramatic colour palette will lead you towards a Gothic style of window treatment that gives the entire room an eerie and glamorous vibe, whilst lighter colours like beiges, whites, and silvers will give your classic window treatments a pure and ancient feel. Stay away from modern man-made materials, and stick to luxury fabrics like brocade, velvet, cotton and silk to combine classic with luxury.
The reason we urge you to go for curtains, drapes, valances, is because fabric window treatments can create a soft, but heavy feeling in the home. Adding more modern options such as blinds, will give your windows a minimal and modular style that contradicts the rest of your classically decorated home. These type of window treatments are best saved for traditional and transitional styles of home design.
Stepping out of your comfort zone
By following these guidelines and not being daunted by the heaviness and boldness of the fabrics you’re using, and the size of the window treatments, you’ll be able to find the perfect classic window treatment for you. Remember to mix and match your drapes, curtains, and valances until you find the result that’s best for you.
