Sleek and sophisticated, transitional style combines the tried-and-true foundation of traditional furniture with fresh, contemporary décor. Think timeless pieces such as sofas and arm chairs combined with trending textures and accents.
Our favorite part? Transitional style is simple and lends itself to easy updates over time. Here’s a look at our favorite ideas for bringing this look into your own home.
Ivory accent chairs and sofas are the perfect backdrop for playful contemporary accents – especially when paired with traditional nailhead trim. Matte brass, gold patterns, and even cowhide rugs can live harmoniously in a transitional setting.
If the focus of your bedroom décor is currently a traditional-style headboard and dresser, transitioning to transitional style should be easy. A modern accent chair, unique lighting, and a metallic accent pillow or two will complete the look.
It’s easy to add transitional appeal to your dining room with the right décor – think pendant lights, chic vases, and contemporary artwork. These accents can turn even the most traditional dining set into something more modern.
Try updating your entryway with transitional style in mind. Contemporary accents such as mirrors, benches, and lighting add sophistication to timeless area rugs and console tables.
One of the easiest ways to make the switch from traditional to transitional is to update your lighting – the options are nearly endless. Look for pieces that feature a saturated color, metallic finish, or eye-catching silhouette.
Animal hide rugs (real or man-made) are a quick way to add modern appeal to your living room or bedroom. They’re quiet in color but loud in texture – a key element of transitional style.
