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!

This post, too, will help you affordably transform your space! Redecorating Without Breaking The Bank. All this advice will help you to be the envy of all your guests! We’re here to help you with this, use any of the below contact information for additional guidance!

The New Design Trends of 2017

A new year is coming! We’re almost there, and the trends that are flowing in with the new year are unbelievable and eye-catching. We’re so excited to share them with you, but first and foremost, Greenery was just announced the Color of the Year this past week. We’re awaiting the uses of this color in fashion, interior design, and every other creative outlet. It was chosen because it’s a reminder to take a deep breath and appreciate the beauty and revitalizing ambiance of the natural world around you. If you want to learn more about Greenery and why it was chosen to be the color of the year, check out our blog post written all about it. With that being said, you should have a good idea about the trends for the upcoming year.

Escapism

This first design trend is Escapism which means to seek distraction or need relief from unpleasant realities. This is incorporated into design through personal havens, such as a close and comfortable library, spa-like bathroom, or tranquillity room. It’s up to the homeowner what they want to do with any extra room, but we suggest making a personal sanctuary.

Terracotta

Yes, that’s right. Terra-cotta is slowly becoming “a thing.” People are tiling their walls and floors with it. If done well, it can look marvelous. Seriously gorgeous. It could also go the complete opposite direction though, so with this trend, we suggest a lot of before-hand planning.

Jewel Tones

Jewel tones are secluded to just existing as jewels. This is trending in every creative outlet you can think of. People are even dying their hair jewel tones. This is one of the 2017 trends that doesn’t need to be over-thought. Throw jewel tones in anywhere (couch, pillows, drapes, trinkets), and they will work and look amazing.

Cork

This is a trend that isn’t only adorable but can also be very useful. Cover an entire wall in your home office with cork. Just make sure you have a lot of push pins in a drawer near by! Cork is such a neutral material that you can make it look strong and masculine or soft and feminine. This trend is about adding texture to a basic room.

Upholstered Headboards

This has become a big DIY project these past couple months that is overflowing into this next year. They’re fun and sophisticated at the same time. How is that possible?! Upholstered headboards can just really pull a whole room together. They also create a very comfortable, at-home feeling when friends and family stay in your guest bedroom.

Those are all the design trends we have dug up so far! Just remember 2017 is all about new beginnings and relaxing. Have fun with the new design trends, and comment below with pictures showing how you’ve incorporated them into your own home!
