Understanding Transitional Style

When you take a look at the dictionary, the term transitional means in the middle or intermediary. With that said, we can say that transitional style refers to the interior decoration style that mixes contemporary design with historic or conventional ones.

When you take a look at furniture or decorations with transitional style, you can see that the patterns are quite playful and free. This style is not as extravagant as modern designs but it is not as plain or as boring as the conventional ones.

Next, you will have to choose the perfect rug color or colors that suit your style. Transitional rugs come in a vast array of pallets to encompass all colors one may have in they’re decor. Busier schemed rooms with statement furniture might require a more simplistic color pallet than rooms which may need a burst of color or pattern to bring them alive.

Lastly you need to consider the size of the rug or rugs for the room. It’s always best to go for over-sized rugs or custom sized rugs for a more opulent look or even better to layer a few complementary rugs together to create that effortless bohemian look.
