How to add Transitional Design Elements to your home

Do you have treasured family heirlooms you want to include in your home design, but can't figure out how to make them match? Or love the outlines and formality of traditional housewares, but also feel drawn to more simple, modern pieces? Chances are, your favored design is Transitional. 


A client asked me to illustrate key pieces to include in her living room for a Transitional Design Style, featuring mostly neutrals and a pop of color.

Navy is my favorite accent color lately, and it was so much fun to put together this navy, ivory, and gold living space! 

The room is grounded with a neutral rug inspired by traditional Oriental rug designs. The Chesterfield sofa is a very traditional silhouette that continues to be a classic and lasting addition to any home.  Great accent chairs can be found for less than $200 and are a high impact piece that really accentuates your design personality by adding bold colors and patterns to your room. Emphasize your accent colors with pillows, blankets, and accessories that are easy to update as your tastes or seasons change.
