Note the painted woodwork in a vintage environment. People (men) are often afraid to paint old wood thinking it will ruin value of the home. In fact, it preserves the feel and actually highlights the moldings better. CL
The feel of this space is terrific. However, as stunning at the white wing chairs look, they very much prohibit good conversation since guests have to peer around the sides to see those next to them. Here form won out over function CL

Brackets under the cabinet make it appear to be a custom piece Remember you can easily add molding to existing molding especially if moldings are painted. Here the study of line, texture and light in a neutral color pallet is timeless, fresh and modern yet traditional---note the nail heads too. CL
Using drape as an alternative to doors is such a great idea--however, the rod hung low over the arch gives the room a rather short squatty feel. When hanging any drapes for better visual balance, place them up towards the ceiling as far as you can. This will elongate the room and make it feel much taller.
A great way to extend store bought drapes is by adding a boarder. However the rod here should have extended at least 6" wider on each side of the window so that it didn't shroud the view. The rod could have also been hung as close to the ceiling as possible to elongate the space.
