A sophisticated look, marrying traditional elegance and contemporary cool creating a beautiful and timeless home.

Transitional style refers to the blending of traditional and contemporary elements. Color palettes tend to be subtle and monochromatic or a blending of creams and browns. Transitional style is elegant, refined, comfortable, and classic and lends itself beautifully to mixing styles to make it feel warm and familiar. Because of its ability to mix traditional elements with contemporary design it is a style that will transcend time and trends and is easily updated to make it look and feel fresh.

Tone-on tone color palettes are one of the design elements that defines the transitional style. Warm neutrals, cream, taupe, tan, khaki and gray. Patterns should be kept to a minimum.

Although transitional typically balances contemporary and traditional design, it doesn’t always have to. You can mix pieces from other styles as long as the overall design elements work harmoniously together and it doesn’t distract from the overall balance of the room. The bedroom featured above, highlights this beautifully by adding a more tropical fan such as The Islander® ceilling fan into this calm and serene transitional bedroom.
