Materials and Colors. There is a variety of materials used in transitional furniture. You may say it is greater in variety than either traditional or modern styles, but all material is treated with restraint. Wood is generally lighter in color than traditional furniture, because the look is never dark and brooding. However darker finishes may be used, as well as painted finishes. Metal, glass, and wood are often used together in different combinations. But you will not find sleek metal, glass or acrylic on its own as in contemporary furniture. Very often these materials will be used to add detail. Leather is one of the most popular materials in transitional furniture. Distressed leather is also used often. The idea is to have furniture that is casual and comfortable, and yet shows some semblance of formality. Textured fabric such as ultrasuedes, corduroys, and chenilles are often used. Since color is generally subdued, texture is often used to create interest. Fabric colors in transitional style furniture are often neutral and toned down. Olives, taupes, creamy whites, and tans are some of the colors that are used often.
Victorian style is perfectly combined with elements of the Rococo, which is characterized by pastel colors, furniture with curved, carved headboards. Here you can find the Gothic in the form of massive metal chandeliers, metal cabinet knobs. The pastel colors, the presence flowers and plants in the room, a massive chandelier above the table give out the elements of Indian style. Design of Victorian style is, among other, built on a combination of walls, ceiling in pastel colors (cream, pale yellow, light green, etc.) with the warm tones of the parquet and furniture typical for the classic style. Interior of the kitchen in a Victorian style determines, first of all, the presence of a massive table in the center of the room. Kitchen lighting provide a massive chandelier and several additional lamps. And of course, the walls and the furniture should be of soft, quiet tones. Less textiles on the windows.
