It’s the perfect blend. Transitional interiors happen when traditional and contemporary looks unite, and the result is a classic and sophisticated dream team. Neutral colours, natural textures, comfortable and elegant furniture. Carefully curated accessories and art scream quiet luxury at its finest. The most dynamic of the home-design esthetics, lovers of transitional decor are constantly switching up and fine-tuning vignettes.
Thomas Chippendale was arguably the greatest furniture designer of all times. A traditional décor scheme needs no introduction— it’s warm, inviting and layered with luxurious textures like linen, silk and velvet in plaid, floral and damask patterns. Elegant window treatments and touches of crystal and brass set the stage for parties where guests linger long after bed time. Caution: from walnut tabletops to silver candle sticks, there’s much to polish in a traditional home.
Living in the moment. The clean lines and sleek design of light-reflecting metal and glass materials shine in a contemporary space. A neutral backdrop with occasional pops of primary colours found in oversized abstract art sets the stage. Preferred design esthetic for a dedicated minimalist, a contemporary space is the ideal setting for a cup of green tea served in Japanese ceramics. The smarter the appiances, the better.
Oh the places you’ve been! No such thing as carry-on only for this travelista, the bohemian eclectic requires oversized luggage to transport treasures for display back home. Rattan baskets, teak masks, vintage rugs, hand-woven textiles and one-of-a kind pottery surround leather armchairs, textured wallpaper and rich wood furnishings. Every last thing sparks joy and will only be moved to squeeze in another fabulous find.
Less is more has never looked so good. It’s all about calming comfort in the minimalistic Scandi-inspired modern space. Natural fibers like cork, sisal, wool and cotton complement Mid-century Modern furniture and flooring in pale wood tones like beech and ash. Greenery makes for the perfect accessory and plants thrive with so much natural light. A muted neutral colour palette seals the deal. Think candlelit soirees where guests relax on oversized floor pillows.
A farmhouse table is at the heart of this craft-inspired esthetic. Close cousins include Shabby Chic, Cottage Core and Modern Farmhouse, which share much of the same DNA. A little bit of vintage goes a long way — whether it’s chintz plates adorning walls or a distressed sideboard topped with woven baskets filled with wildflowers. Colourful wallpaper with jewel-toned prints sets the backdrop for overstuffed slipcovered furnishings, striped linens and floral cushions. Cosy is key and the table is always set for one more — friends and family don’t hesitate to stop by when nearby.
