Find It Style It: Transitional

Transitional design is a very popular look that lots of homeowners achieve without trying. It is the blend of modern and traditional; in our opinion, it offers the most flexibility. It offers the perfect blend of cushioned surfaces and clean lines. This is perfect for evolving families and the casual family. Instead of swimming through Pinterest and other websites, we’ve compiled an easily applicable look that you can put together yourself! Of course, these are only suggestions, so feel free to stray a little and put your own spin on things! While you’re on the website, look under “similar items” or “recently bought together” for further personalization and items. If you’re on Wayfair, look under “similar items” or “recently bought together” for further options of similar items.

Our Projects

Here is a perfect example of a recent transitional room we created for a client! A lot of times we have to work with some of their previous furniture pieces, which makes transitional a popular style option. As you can tell, this family room looks inviting, but still clean and updated. We opted for a white sectional so it wouldn’t feel heavy being such a large piece already. The console tables behind the couch provide an extra surface and storage space while incorporating modern looks. The dark beams on top help tie in the different wood tones throughout the room and the blue-painted built-ins give a refreshing feel to the room.

Here is another look at a transitional space we have done in the past. The neutral color palette seems modern despite the comfortable, traditional furniture pieces. Some unique decor items and a simple layout help update the style, which is an easy fix for a lot of people. When it comes to transitional design, it helps to choose a color scheme and stick with that. We recommend keeping it neutral at the base (walls and large furniture pieces) then you can express your true style though accent chairs, rugs, and pillows. This will help keep the space cohesive and easy to rearrange in the future!

Cozy Up Your Home For Fall

Besides thinking up creative Halloween costumes and cooking up some of our favorite fall foods, one of the best things about October is that you finally get to add cozy touches to your home. Your house should look different each season. In the spring and summer, it should feel bright, airy, and light. In the fall and winter, it should feel cozy, warm, and comfortable. The best part about changing up your décor is that it doesn’t take much effort at all. With just a few simple touches to each room, you’ll immediately feel ready for crunchy leaves and sweater weather! Today, we have a few simple steps to make your home feel cozier for the season.

For your family room: get a cozy throw blanket.

We love bringing out all of our softest and coziest blankets to snuggle up on the couch with during the later fall colder months. Most people have a nice fuzzy blanket on hand, so this is a change you can make without spending a dime. If you’re looking to spend a little on a fresh throw, opt for one that has a fall/winter feel to get you in the seasonal spirit.

For your dining room: change up your table scape.

In the summertime, it’s a good idea to place a row of succulents down the dining room table with seashells scattered around them. During the fall, change to a warmer color scheme, using natural décor like pinecones, colored leaves, and white mini pumpkins. You can also add apples, squash, cranberries, and candles into the mix for a very seasonal feel.

For your kitchen: treat yourself to fresh fall flowers.

Just as some flowers seem perfect for the spring and summer months, other blooms are ideal for fall. Adding fresh flowers to your kitchen (or really any room in your house) will make it feel festive and fresh. Make sure you know which flowers are in season before buying a fall bouquet from your local farmer’s market.

For your living room: add candles to your fireplace.

A blazing fire adds the best cozy feeling to a living room in the wintertime. But since we’re in fall, a time that is a little spookier, we suggest adding tons of candles to your fireplace for a warm, peaceful feel. When winter rolls around, you will be excited to change things up with a log fire!
