What is the Transitional Design Style

A relatively new design style spurred in the 2010s, transitional is inspired by the comfort of classic design reimagined in the minimalistic style of our modern world.

In a mix of decorative elements, or a singular element accurately referenced within the entire space, transitional design makes a bold statement that is both personal and timeless.

Characteristic simple and symmetrical lines frame the intriguing interplay of modern aesthetics with classic opulence, showing that you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Typical Colours

The typical transitional colour palette tends towards the more natural shades of grey, beige, and warm white, with earthy browns, soft greens, and lavish gold that resonate depth alongside them.
