Looking for a way to upgrade your homes interior design but don’t know where to start? Not sure what design style is right for you? Then transitional style which is very diverse, be the answer. Traditional style is a mix of traditional and modern using fabrics, furniture, color, and décor. The key to mastering transitional decorating style is to find a path that makes everything seem to work with each other while representing you and your lifestyle. Think a restful and serene transitional living room that features a thoughtful mix of contemporary, modern, and even antique furnishings that together evoke the art of brilliant combinations.


Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Scale is crucial in getting right. The key is to keep most of the furnishings and accessories in a room relatively the same size (except for maybe an oversized focal point). These items include main tables like a coffee table or dining room table, sofas, chairs, and artwork for the walls.

  • Color and fabrication are another often perplexing issue. Too many colors and patterns in a room competing with one another can make the space overwhelming. The key here is to be varied and look for common denominators that will make everything work together seamlessly without being too “matchy-matchy”.

  • Furniture in transitional interior design is unexpected yet carefully coordinated mixes, go for simple silhouettes counterbalanced by nuanced, abstract, and rounded elements to keep the eye moving around the room.

  • When mixing eras and design styles, stick to a 3-4 elements so that things don’t compete with each other, maintaining a unified but still diverse look.

  • When it comes to selecting colors, it all depends on the mood you’re looking to create in the room. For a subtle take on transitional decorating style, go tonal and introduce an array of four to five tones of the same shade. For a more dramatic look, use dark, moody hues but stick to the same idea of a range of hues to keep everything consistent.

  • Furniture in transitional interior design is unexpected yet carefully coordinated mixes, go for simple silhouettes counterbalanced by nuanced, abstract, and rounded elements to keep the eye moving around the room.

There’s more freedom to be found with transitional home décor as you can experiment until the mix feels right for you. The key element for any well-realized transitional style home as every element should stand on its own while together creating a rich assortment of goods that brilliantly work together.
