Transitional style is a blended balance of traditional and contemporary furnishings and decor. The color palette is often monochromatic with accent colors that are less saturated than its traditional counterpart. Yielding a light and airy feel, neutral tones featured in upholstery and fabrics offer interest in texture more so than in pattern. Window treatments are typically simple in presentation and various textiles have a pop of subtle color. Furniture in a Transitional home is often a mix of classic and modern styles with a combination of painted and stained finishes as well as mixed metals. A Transitional designed home is one of a timeless look that spans the decades.
