This nostalgic trend looks to a glorious past and the skills employed in creating beautiful and desirable objects for the home. Rich in architectural detail, luxury materials and high shine style, we show you how to achieve this refined look in your home.

Choose luxurious layers
Nothing says luxury quite like sumptuous layers at the window, and this sophisticated trend really lends itself to a layered look. In this living room we’ve dressed the stunning bay window with contemporary café style shutters and layered full length, grey curtains over them for a classically elegant look. An antique apothecary chest enhances the period styling as well as providing plenty of useful storage.

Pick out classic prints
Invest in classic designs that are intrinsically refined and always in vogue, such as damask prints, jacquard designs, geometrics and stripes. These opulent cream curtains are from our exclusive House Beautiful collection. The shimmering damask print is set against an ombre background for a subtle contemporary twist. We’ve finished the look with Rodez Linen Roman blinds.


Include glossy surfaces
This luxury look is full of lustre and shine. Warm metallic shades and high shine surfaces are key elements in this trend. The kitchen is the perfect place to incorporate glossy finishes that are also heard-wearing and practical, like this beautiful marble worktop. A delicate Alayna Ivory Pleated blind adds to the refined feel and imbues the space with a warm vanilla glow.

Cosy up with luxury woollens
Snuggle up with super soft mohair and cashmere throws in pale pastel shades, and choose heavy quilt throws embroidered with sequin details for extra cosiness. We’ve given this gorgeous bedroom a cool boho feel with an antique day bed, complete with vintage cushions and a hot pink cashmere throw. A Pretty Pink Venetian blind adds a soft shimmer at the window, with Wisp White voiles finishing the feminine look.
