Mediterranean furniture style. This style originated in countries north of the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Greece and Italy, and is often referred to today as "Spanish modern." Mediterranean-style furniture ranges from simply functional to extremely formal. Pieces are short, with ornately turned legs and feet; hardware is heavy and often burnished. Walls are predominantly textured. A bullnose edge is a common design detail on countertops and fireplace mantels. Here's how the style breaks down: Colors: Mediterranean colors echo those of the sea and sky and, depending on the region, can also include warm terra cotta, lavender and yellow. Tile: Mosaic tile designs embody the beauty of a Mediterranean interior. Bring the designs into your home on the floor or a kitchen backsplash or on something you can take with you if you move, like a mirror frame or a tabletop. You can also simulate the look of tile with a stenciled mosaic border on floors, walls or furniture.
Transitional style is often described as a balanced blend of traditional and contemporary furnishings and decor. Many who like a “lighter” traditional look choose this style because transitional decor tends to span multiple decades and always look fresh. Transitional decor retains the classic lines of traditional styles, but the colors and furnishings are typically more modern in their appearance. Transitional decorating embraces soft lines and comfortable furnishings, but without the fuss of traditional styling. Color palettes tend to follow the contemporary style and are kept to a minimum. That doesn't mean neutrals are the only color on the table, but there may be fewer colors incorporated into the overall decor. The style, on the other hand, is less bold than what one would typically find in a contemporary space. It blends elements of both styles with textures, colors, and furnishings that somehow seem to come together flawlessly. In short, transitional style is an elegant and timeless design motif that combines new and old--and masculine with feminine--in a fresh way. (And it an be hard to strike the right balance when you're trying to attain this look, which is why it often takes careful thought...especially when the functionality of a room comes into play.
