5 tips to get a transitional style home


Anyone with discerning eyes will happily endorse transitional interior design for its flexibility. A beautiful mesh of classic and contemporary, there is more to this style than what meets the eye. Current rage in the home décor scene, this is certainly one style we recommend this holiday season.


Traditional turns transitional

A favourite among the new gen crowd, who are looking to give an edge to their classic homes, transitional is easy to achieve. You are looking at a style that matches both feminine and masculine tastes and still looks stunning. Remove the worn-off upholstery from your classical sofa and redo it with modern fabrics and mix it with a contemporary style coffee table.

Appealing accessories

Transitional is all about clean lines, curved furnishings, simple accessories and a neutral colour palette, and to achieve cohesiveness with all of them in the end. A stunning glass vase with a bunch of red roses is good enough of an accessory for your living room. You can opt for candles if that’s too simple.

Elegant and enduring

Comfortable and classy, transitional style is about keeping the elegance intact. Blend relaxing tones like ivory, taupe, beige and tan with deeper tones such as chocolate browns. The key is to keep the whole look uncomplicated.

Tasteful and textural

Use signature pieces, but sparingly, across the rooms. One or two impactful art pieces are all you need for wall decoration. Create textures with wood, glass, metals and fabrics.

Balance and symmetry

Understated yet very chic, this style takes subtlety to another level with its clean white rooms and smart furnishings. Try and create balance to your otherwise messy home with this style.
