I don’t believe there is anything that expresses the idea of femininity the way ruffles, pleats and tufts do. Just think of the prettiest dresses, hair bows and even socks for little girls: they are full of ruffles!! Pleats add a preppy look that most would consider “school girl chic”. Tufts are commonly seen on furniture and bring a level of elegance that is unparallelled. There are tons of ways to include ruffles, pleats and tufts into your home, event decor and even DESSERT!
Let’s get inspired!

The elegance and sophistication that tufted furniture pieces bring to a room is undeniable.
From the color palette, the high ceilings and the tall windows this room is nothing short of amazing! The sheer pleated AND ruffled curtains allow for an “airy” feel in the space.
