Transitional design has become one of the most sought-after styles for today’s homebuyer. It’s also one of our favorite home styles at ABD. This style is created through a careful combination of contemporary and traditional elements. We are going to break down this style and the elements that make it up as well as the ways that ABD can help you build the home of your dreams in this blog.
Transitional Style Defined
According to HGTV, transitional style is a marriage of traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials, and fabrics equating to a classic, timeless design. In a transitional home, furniture is simple yet sophisticated and features both straight and rounded lines. The typical color palette in this style of home contains colors like dark brown, taupe, tan, and vanilla. Many people also add hues of blue and green to their home. This is done to evoke a feeling of serenity and simplicity. The furnishings and accessories in a transitional home are typically minimalistic and focus on interesting textures.
Elements of Transitional Style
There are several components that make up a transitional home style. First, is texture. You can mix multiple textures because of the lack of color. Some popular textures for a transitional home include ultra-suedes, pliable leathers, and chenilles. Next, incorporate some contrasting elements into your design to create visual interest. Add accents in contrasting colors to compliment your home’s transitional aesthetic. Finally, combine curved and straight lines to balance both masculine and feminine attributes. Remember, when it comes to transitional style, a lack of ornamentation and decoration keeps the focus on the sophistication of the design. These are just some of the elements that define a traditional style.
