You have a Traditional style home. However, your design aesthetic is leaning more toward Contemporary. Above all, your style matters: mixing your style. Your home should reflect you. In other words, even with a traditional home design. You can mix in contemporary design elements creating a transitional design.
What is Transitional Design? Style Matters: Mixing Your Style
A mix of traditional and contemporary styles creates a transitional design. Simple yet sophisticated furniture lines. Featuring either straight lines or rounded shapes. The accessories are minimal. Carefully selected, layered but special. Such as a single potted orchid. For instance, adding a group of vases on a baby grand piano.
How Color Plays a Part In the Style Mix
Modern home designs call for minimal colors. However, that does not mean not using any color. Just using shades and tones that compliment the overall design. Therefore, bringing in textures and dimensions will create a modern design in any space. The addition of stone, textural artwork or vases. Will bring a modern contemporary element to your design.
Rugs Can Transform a Room Design
Starting with the floor plan is key to any great design. However, the rug can be a great inspiration for mixing your design style. Imagine you have a traditional rug to start with but would like to add a coastal vibe to your great room. Pulling the colors of the rug for your room design could be the key to mixing the styles. Remember, just because something is of one “style” doesn’t mean you can’t mix it with another style.
