I believe status implications can be derived from everything that you said. Think about the generalized affluent activities and customs that society implies. How many rich people coupon clip? How many impoverished people have access to the opera or theatre? By asking if Capote is painting a scene with the background of the house and the style, that is generally something that more well-to-do families are aware. Think about the plantations in the south, or a home decorated in modern or Victorian society, these are markers of a higher status in society and another necessarily trifles that the more common working family will focus on. When an author paints a character, he or she generally does so more carefully than even they are aware. When giving characters their traits, we take everything we know of an archetype in our mind and transfer it to paper.
