Design 101: Traditional vs Transitional Interiors
Ever wonder what makes a traditional or transitional design? We’ve got a few tricks that will help you detect the differences between the two.
TRADITIONAL – Traditional design has its roots in 18th century England and French countryside. The style is known for its warm, inviting interiors that scream comfort.
Traditional color schemes typically include neutral tones with warm, rich woods. Office’s usually feature dark wood tones and coffered ceilings.
Symmetry is important to traditional design. The furnishings are balanced to create a room that invites conversation. Accents include plump cushions, plentiful pillows and silk flowers in intricate vases.
With transitional design, soft-colored carpets or warm wood floors are accented with a textured rug.
Clean lines and rounded profiles keep the room feeling fresh and comfortable. The result is a room that is not too manly and not too frilly.
A statement light fixture and minimal accents exude a sense of simplicity and sophistication. A neutral backdrop allows the clean lined millwork to have a powerful impact in the space. It pairs perfectly with simple hardware and sleek stainless steel.
