Decorative painting techniques can imitate the look of upholstered silk walls and are much more practical. Wooden furniture (case goods) is usually of a dark tone. Mahogany, walnut, and oak, as well as exotic hardwoods, are used for their fine grain and elegant look. Wooden furniture pieces are polished to a high shine. For an active home, use several layers of lacquer or polyurethane to create a durable finish.
If you ask any design obsessives, they'll tell you that "traditional" used to mean stuffy and full of patterns and expensive objet d’ art. And while some of those elements—like bold prints and statement decor items—still add sophistication and drama to your home, they don't have to make it feel dated and precious.
Lamps, candles and traditional chandeliers are used rather than recessed lighting. Vases filled with fresh flowers from the garden or baskets of dried flowers are scattered throughout the home. Flower arrangements, as well as other accessories, are kept simple. Flea markets and garage sales are excellent places to search for English country accessories.
Wood furniture will usually have a mix of straight and curved lines. There may be light carving details as well. While wood pieces will often be finished with darker stains, a traditional room might also use lighter woods as long as the lines of each piece are classic.
