Transitional style is realized when contrasting elements of traditional and modern styles blend into one sophisticated, timeless atmosphere. Neutral colors provide a unifying foundation for the divergent decorative influences. Textures such as wood, glass, textiles, and metallics add visual interest to the restrained palette. The straight lines of a box frame side table and the rounded silhouette of an accent chair may come together in an unexpected furniture combination. Decorations are used sparingly, but are carefully selected for an inviting touch of warmth.
