Transitional Style Ideas for Your Next Custom Design
When we see of the word transition we think of going from one stage to another — the inbetween. Night transitions into day, Winter transitions into Spring, a child transitions into an adult. Transition essentially means the crossing over and when we attribute this progression to design, we are working with a style invented by fusing two distinct aesthetics together to visually display the inbetween. The two styles we grab artistic elements from to create a transitional look are traditional and modern. This means furniture, decor, and colors are a blend of the past, present, and future (especially when using antique discoveries with modern finds). Transitional style design is especially popular amongst interior designers and frequent decorators as it allows artistic freedom to incorporate "mismatching" materials to create a space that feels like you started your own design trend. Transitional design is also a winning look because if you think about it, it could never really go out of style.
What features do I need to create a transitional design?
Transitional design is about balancing opposing traits. The room becomes cohesive with equal use of masculine and feminine characteristics. Intricate, ornate details and straight-lines are married as well as a noticeable harmony with color choice. Most often times bright color is used scarcely and a neutral palette allows the geometry and textures of the room to stand out. Below are some examples of projects Closet Works has created with transitional style inspiration.
