Transitional style is a cross between traditional and contemporary, which is why it is said to be timeless. In this type of decor, you can go for glamorous motifs and colours, like red, orange or lime green. Transitional furniture is often dark, but can also be found in medium hues. It can have clean lines, as well as more elaborate or rounded elements. Materials like metal and leather go very well with this style. Think elegant and harmonious fabric, with a touch of chenille or velvet. Finally, use accessories in moderation, and go for pizzazz over quantity.
