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.
Decorative finishing the ceiling. Regarding the ceiling we can recommend you to paint it in a warm or white. By the way, the fabric right under the ceiling is perfect draping. And if you want to do something more original then fasten beams of dark wood at the ceiling and lay a reed or bamboo stalks on them. By the way, bamboo plates are not just for flooring, but for the ceiling. They are fixed directly to the basic ceiling or on a crate of suspended one, and everything contributes to the creation of an extraordinary sense of presence in real African hut. While much of the African décor you find may be in browns, blacks, and other earth tones, you can add boosts of color throughout the room with beautiful accessories. African colors echo the brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges of a sunset, as well as the brilliant greens and blues of the grass and the sky. Use these colors in pottery pieces, throw rugs, afghans, lamps, pillows, and other décor.
