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!

Spooky, yet Stylish

We understand that most parents may be a little worried about how they’ll keep their little ones preoccupied this season. Normally, it is the perfect time to go outdoors more in the cool weather, dress up for trick-or-treating, and share goodies with others. While some of that may be limited now, we compiled some crafty activities that will keep everyone in the Spooky spirit! These are great for sharing scrumptious recipes at home and sneakily making the kids create some great decorations for your home this season. 😉

Spooky yet Stylish Decor

There are so many ways you can decorate for the season without having to sacrifice your aesthetic! Here are some amazing ideas on low-budget, yet large impact ways to perfectly decorate your place. Some professional designer tips: keep the decorations similar in color, meaning if you plan on sticking to orange tones, avoid neon greens and dark purples. Don’t scatter your decor, focus on two to three focal points throughout the main living spots to up the impact and keep everything looking organized. If you want to stay low-budget, have your kids make lots of tissue ghosts and paint jack-o-lantern acorns! Group the small crafts to elevate their effect. Invest in some fake cobwebs and black candles to add a dramatic effect for any tablescape.

Farmhouse Friendly Halloween Decor!

Unconventional Black Paper Butterflies

Never underestimate the impact of simplicity! Especially if you’re determined to decorate within your existing minimalist home theme, you need to focus on this rule. A quirky throw pillow with a quote and uniformly stacked pumpkins can do the job in a beach house or modern farmhouse style. For our boho-lovers, grab some new pots in the shapes skulls, pumpkins, and other Halloween related shapes as an easy and reversible project. Think about incorporating some nontraditional colors that could pass with Halloween, too. This could be a burnt orange chunky throw blanket, an olive green/black/burlap garland, or hot pink and gold painted pumpkins.

Fun Things To-Do

If you are unable to go trick-or-treating, make sure you plan some nighttime activities so the kiddies don’t give staying at home a second thought! This Glow Necklace Ring Toss is perfect for that, and you can even switch up the platform to witch hats,so  take your pick! Create a tournament schedule with these games to get the family more competitive and have more fun! Another classic idea to do is the Mummy Wrap! Use up some of the toilet paper you probably stocked up on between COVID and hurricane season to good use! In case you aren’t familiar with the game, it’s when one person holds the end of a paper roll and the another teammate wraps them while trying to not break the roll.

As healthier option, these spooky kabobs are the perfect mix between tasty and nutritious. Some small hard candies pressed into the marshmallow will make the face, just make sure you don’t eat too many parts before the finished result! The mozzarella sticks and marinara sauce will be more filling and easier to plan, too; a perfect small edition to the Halloween feast you’re putting on.
