Transitional design is a blending of sleek contemporary and elegant traditional styles. The end result is a classic look that appeals to both men and women, bringing comfort to all who enter the room.
Transitional design is perfect for people with eclectic tastes. The color palette focuses on modern neutrals, such as beige, grey, taupe and cream. These light neutrals play against rich shades of black and brown. Then, pops of color are added with home accents – a vibrant red vase or citron pillows.
Texture becomes an important element to bring the transitional decor a rounded feeling. Chenille, raw silk, ultra-sued, woven fabrics and leather are classic and contemporary additions.
Window treatments are generally modest and include roman shades, woven woods and simple side panels. The warmth of wood is used for flooring and as accents on furniture.
With our increasingly hectic lifestyles, comfort and relaxation have become very important qualities in our homes – as has longevity. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the subtle, serene transitional look appeals to a wide variety of audiences.
