Transitional interior design is a combination of traditional and contemporary design. It’s a popular design choice for those who love traditional design but want an updated space with modern influences. The design elements of Transitional Interior Design include:
• Colors: To marry traditional and contemporary styles, transitional design uses warm neutrals to ground the space. Colors such as cream, taupe, tan, khaki and gray are often used as a unifying palette. Patterns are usually understated as well.
• Textures: The neutral palette allows for interesting textures to be used in transitional interior design. Natural fibers, such as jute and seagrass, are used to add dimension; a blend of shiny and matte finishes help layer a room; and leather, burlap, chenille and rattan add further interest.
• Gender-Neutral: Transitional interior design blends masculine and feminine elements to create a comfortable space for everyone. Accessories are kept to a minimum and aren’t too fussy. Wood is used to balance softer carpets and drapes. The overall feeling of the room is comfortable.
