The key to a classic interior is symmetry and order, with furniture placement and styling usually working around a key focal point, such as a fireplace. Start by looking at the bare bones of your home. The key is to have a focal point such as a large bay window or set of French doors. Classic style includes well-made furniture with detailing such as inlay and carved or turned legs, as well as pieces with ornate detailing, sometimes with a floral influence. Fabrics that have texture and subtle patterns, and stripes mixed with block colours, are popular choices. You can achieve a classic look by mixing in straighter-lined pieces with more traditional items to create a fusion, which works by following the principles of placement. You won't find blinds or bare window coverings in traditional homes. Drapery and valances are classic, usually with heavy curtains. Upholstery, whether for curtains, pillows, or furniture, tend to favour high-end fabrics like silk, velvet, and leather, and bold pattern comes in the form of damask, plaid, or paisley.
