The transitional design style is very similiar to the traditional design style – just a big more upscale, if you will. Lovers of a more transitional style of design tend to incorporate classic designs with a bit of a contemporary flair. And often times you will hear the transitional design style described as an exciting blend of traditional and contemporary styles.
Picture in your mind a room setting that blends the contemporary look of chrome and glass with the charm of a weathered antique armoire, and you will begin to understand the interest and excitement a transitional style of design can bring to the rooms in your homes. Often times transitional pieces of furniture feature very clean lines – nothing ornate – and tend to be pieces that we would describe as timeless in their beauty.
And, as if often said, a picture is worth a thousand words. Let’s take a look at a few transitionally styled rooms, and I think you will see a beautiful array of design sophistication!
