How To Effortlessly Blend Traditional and Modern Design

Do you find it hard to pinpoint a single style when designing your home? You may be leaning toward traditional, neutral tones but indulging in simple, modern accessories.

What if we told you that you don’t have to choose between the two? Well, you don’t because transitional interior design beautifully combines both. With a transitional design style, your home can be the perfect blend of the elements you love in modern and traditional design.

What is Transitional Interior Design?

Transitional interior design beautifully blends the staples of traditional design and the bold details of modern design. The outcome of this pairing is a clean and uncluttered space that feels warm and familiar.

Neutral Colors

Neutral colors are essential in traditional and modern design, making it easy to combine the two styles. With shades of creams, greys, and browns, you can create a room that feels both crisp and cozy. So, while you indulge in the bold statement of a sleek marble table, you can balance the room by adding tufted chairs with high backs and metal nail heads.

Natural Textures

Natural textures and materials are must-have elements in transitional design. Wood, glass, rattan, open-weave fabrics, and metals are all great options. These textured materials will play well off your neutral color palette and give your room depth and dimension.

Limited Accessories

With transitional design, you don’t need additional elements to make an impact – the plan says it all! So, instead of cluttering your shelves and surfaces with knick-knacks, choose a handful of subtle yet significant pieces to complete a space. Or, opt for one or two unique pieces that make a statement.
