This is the perfect solution for places that experience extreme cold weathers as they keep warm air, and during the summer keeps your furniture from fading. You could go throw in a couple of holdbacks to keep it classy. Some things just never go out of style.
Lastly, keep it simple. This is the face of the house. Too much clutter and you end up with just a hot mess.
