Transitional Home: The Art Of Mixing
To get you inspired and on your way to creating an environment exclusive to you, here are three tips to help everyone achieve a well blended Transitional home.
Think neutral with your color palette. This will allow the lines of the furniture to steal the show. Dark brown can add depth to a neutral balance of taupe, tan and vanilla.
Get creative and introduce a combination of textural elements to your living room, such as glass, fabric, metal, lacquer and wood. The lack of bright colors leaves plenty of room for intricate, head-turning textures. Consider incorporating a variety of unique fabrics, such as corduroy, ultrasuedes, chenilles and pliable leathers to establish the eye-grabbing element that color usually achieves.
Choose impactful art, but use it sparingly. In most cases, larger pieces on the wall is better than an arrangement of small pieces. The art you choose should have a contemporary look, in terms of style and colors—abstract works, graphic prints, and photography are best.
