This hot new trend is drastically increasing and we would like to offer the basics of Transitional Design to help you get the look you want.
What is Transitional Style?
Transitional style is a modern mix of classic and contemporary, a simple new idea of an old classic or a hip version of traditional design. Among the millennial generation is where the transitional design is often used. Resulting in a room that is equally masculine and feminine in nature is derived from curved furnishings with straight-lined, lacquered finishes. A clean room with added texture and a neutral color palette as opposed to the scattered, eclectic mess is the essence of transitional style.
Transitional Style Design & Decorating
There are many interpretations of this style and to make it a success, the transitional design should be a seamless mixture of modern and traditional styles.
Paint Colors: Neutrals are essential colors because the lines of the furniture are the centerpiece.
Paint Textures: Textures are widely used for accessories, furnishings, and so on; lacquer, wood, glass, rattan, fabric, steel and metal.
Paint Accessories: Limit the use of accessories as you add artful details through the mixes of styled furniture and fabrics; just avoid confusing the eye. Impactful art is acceptable but lean towards one large piece instead of an arrangement of smaller ones. Because Transitional Design can be a bit of a challenge to pull off in your New York/New Jersey home or business, Curragh Painting has included a few examples of rooms done in transition design to get you started.
Bathroom: Integrate glass, metal, ceramic and wood for a dash of modern style by featuring a claw-foot tub with traditional tiles in a chevron pattern.
Bedroom: A curved headboard with tufted upholstery for traditional points with a steel-gray fabric to add modern touches is a good example.
Dining Room: Upholstered chairs in a traditional fabric with an otherwise modern dining table and chairs with steel pendants with exposed light bulbs for a modern offset is ideal.
Kitchen: For kitchen’s already equipped with traditional cabinets, consider adding contemporary pendant lights over your island along with steel countertops can also add a contemporary look to an otherwise traditional kitchen.
Living Room: With traditional architectural features such as trims and moldings, keep the fabrics warm yet neutral in color and add clean-lined chairs and sofas.
