Why a Transitional Style Might be Perfect for Your Home. Furniture in a transitional style combines qualities from both traditional and contemporary styles. This is a style ideal for those who find traditional furnishing styles too old fashioned and stuffy, and modern styles too cold and lacking in warmth. The transitional style is not restricted to just the furniture profiles, shapes, and sizes, but carries through to finishes and materials including fabrics. As the word "transition" implies, this is the style that transitions or falls between a very traditional style and an ultra-sleek modern style. Individual furniture pieces in a transitional style may lean toward being either more traditional or more modern, but they stay away from both extremes. This neutral safety zone between the two styles helps create an in-between yet pleasing furnishing style that draws upon elements from both. A transitional style does not imply that the furniture is lacking in style, only that it is more subtle. In essence, this is what professionals in the furniture and home furnishings industry are talking about when they talk about an "updated classic" or "timeless design".
Accessories: Burnished bronze urns, filigree light fixtures and a wrought-iron fireplace screen exemplify a Mediterranean look with a Moroccan influence. Texture: Layers of paint and glaze are hand-rubbed onto plaster or sand-textured walls to add visual depth.

Tuscan interiors feature a rustic, sun-baked look characterized by crumbling stone patios, simple and sturdy furnishings with elegant iron accents, terra-cotta tiles, textured wall finishes, elegant, detailed murals and trompe l'oeil designs. Here's how the Tuscan style breaks down: Colors: The rustic Tuscan color palette leans heavily on earthy, unpretentious hues evocative of a Tuscan hillside. Floors: Terracotta tiles, stone with mosaic inlay and worn wood covered with antique rugs are all ways to bring a Tuscan look down to the floor. Accents: Wrought-iron accessories such as candle sconces and light fixtures can reinforce the rustic theme. Other appropriate accessories include painted ceramic objects and tile to bring color and vitality to the design. Architecture: Rough plaster walls often soar to a rustic beamed ceiling. Windows are simple and left bare to take advantage of unfiltered natural light.
Classic style implies respect for family relics and values. This is evident in the paintings, portraits. All the portraits, paintings and frescoes are hung on special rails. The color palette of the walls is not rich. Mostly preferred tones are dark red-brown and light-brown. Dark gray walls are used rarely and partially. Often, you can find multiple styles in the interior of a room. Thus, large mirrors are welcomed in the Rococo style. Preference is given to full-length mirrors, but this appears rare. Gothic style can be presented as a stained-glass window, a fireplace with a carved frame. Victorian style does not provide a great variety in the design of the floor. The most common option is parquet floor made of natural wood. Linoleum with parquet pattern is currently used cheapen option. The color of the floor should be combined with the color of the walls and furniture.
