A Brief History of Transitional Design

Transitional design became popular in the early 21st century. While homeowners began seeking out ways to update their homes without completely overhauling their existing décor.

It is often described as the “bridge” between traditional and contemporary styles. Unlike traditional designs which tend to be more formal and ornate, transitional designs are more straightforward and more understated.

However, they also differ from contemporary designs, which often feature sharp lines and stark colors. The striking of a balance between the two helped to create a more timeless design.

Transitional Design Features Elements Of Neutral Colors, Simple Lines, And Natural Materials.

Transitional design began to emerge in the late 1990s, as homeowners became more interested in mixing different styles. The term transitional was not coined until 2002, when designer Kathy Fielding published an article in MarionHome magazine. Since then, transitional design has become increasingly popular, with many designers and homeowners embracing its versatility.

Popular Color Schemes

Transitional design often uses a neutral color scheme. This allows the space to feel open and airy, while providing a calming and relaxing atmosphere. This can include a range of colors from cool whites to warm ivory, taupe and browns.

These colors have the ability to make a room feel larger and more open. And the versatility makes them easy to pair with other colors, making them a great choice for a transitional design.

When using neutral colors in your home, be sure to mix and match different shades to create interest and dimension. You can also incorporate accent colors to add pops of contrast and personality to a space.

The neutral colors help to provide the timelessness of the style. While some colors are trendy and go out of style, these neutral colors remain popular throughout many years.
