Design Style #4 Transitional Chic

Introducing particular interior design styles into your home makes a strong statement about your personality and lifestyle.  That’s why selecting your perfect design style – one that truly reflects the way you really want to live – is so important. Here is number 4 on the list of Interior Design Styles. Will this style give your home the distinctive look you’re after?
  • Your design style combines a little traditional with a contemporary flair – which evokes a comfortable and classic embience.
  • The union of these two styles creates a classic and timeless design for your entire family to enjoy.
  • The focus here is on comfort and practicality while at the same time combining both a masculine and feminine vibe.
  • The blending of curves and straight lines in your furniture creates a great sense of balance. 
  • You love texture and are partial to leathers, ultra-suedes and nubby chenilles –anything soft to the touch. (Visit for some extraordinary fabrics at unbelievable savings).
  • A monochromatic color scheme is often punched up with the introduction of warm browns and chocolate wood tones. 
  • You tend to keep accessories to a minimum yet love to display your photos and artwork framed in silver or nickel finishes for that crisp clean look. This adds a little added sparkle to your space. 
  • Neutral wood flooring and muted colored sisals and Berber carpeting in warmer tones tend to anchor the overall space.
