Transitional interior design is like meeting traditional and modern decor half way. It integrates all the good elements of both styles. While Traditional Style can sometimes feel too inflexible and Modern Style too cold, a transitional style balances harmoniously creating spaces that not only feel timeless but chic as well. Transitional living spaces are created by keeping furniture lines simple without extra ornamentation, using neutral tones and combining all with modern art. Neutral tones can go from varying shades of beige tones to a different range of greys but, that doesn’t mean that only earthy tones can be used. Colors derived from nature undertones can also fall in a similar category, such as greens and blues. The overall feeling in a transitional style room is harmonious, comfortable and it appeals to most people’s taste. It induces grace and rapport. In essence this style of decorating creates cohesive spaces that stand the test of time. And who doesn’t want that? Transitional interiors can perfectly combined a feminine and masculine approach seamlessly making the style very appealing to young family. Because it’s a style that is suppose to go into the future without any regret, the rooms stay away from too much accessories as well as trends.

A transitional living room designed by Stephane Parmentier. The Interior Designer kept lines simple with neutral color fabric. Pay attention to the placement of the art and you notice a more refreshing way of symmetry. The chairs are by Pierre Jeanneret, an eternal French modern classic.
Perfect interpretation of transitional interior design by Delphine Krakoff. A mixture of modern art and timeless furniture with an artistic rug. It’s worth noting the amazing classic lines of the Klismos chairs.
As you can see in this space designed by Thom Filicia, transitional design doesn’t mean only neutrals. Using traditional colors in nontraditional ways can also be done. I really love the pattern on the curtains and the pop of red on the chairs.
