Is your style a mix of contemporary and traditional? If so than the transitional style is perfect for you. This sophisticated look hits the mark between traditional elegance and contemporary cool for the perfect harmony in your home.
Transitional style is achieved by pairing the familiar with the new. In furniture, this means creating an inclusive living area that is both contemporary and traditional. When searching for transitional upholstery look for neutral colors paired with right angles on feet and arms. Details may include geometric fabric patterns or metallic nailhead trim. For bedroom and dining room furniture, identify items that pair rich wood tones, upholstered elements or mirrored finishes with straight lines and sharp edges.
Although transitional usually expresses a balance between contemporary and traditional, it’s not always the case. You can always mix in a few pieces from other styles as long as they don’t take away from the casual, tailored setting.
Here are some of the transitional pieces we love!
The transitional look works great with tone-on-tone palettes and neutrals rule! Cream, taupe, tan, khaki, gray, navy, and browns are great examples. Patterns should be understated and pops of colors should be kept to just a few strategic accents.
