Accessories. Because the transitional style is never overly dramatic, the quiet and subdued furnishings provide a chance to show off collections and accessories. Eclectic and exotic accessories have a place here, as do more quiet and romantic or vintage pieces. The amount of flexibility is quite possibly one of the best features of this style. To accessorize in a transitional style you may: Choose textured rugs in neutral colors. Stay away from very complex patterns, but geometrical patterns can work. Sunburst mirrors or mirrors with simple frames can be used for wall decor. Mirrored screens or Asian inspired room dividers are often used. An object with a patina of age and nostalgia can be used. Take a look at the accessories in the Esquire Home Collection for instance. Other accessories may include simple candlesticks in silver or bud vases. They are never large in scale or overly dramatic. How to Find Transitional Style Furniture Furniture and other accessories in a transitional style are quite possibly the easiest to find. Stanley, Pottery Barn, and Crate and Barrel are among good sources for this style, as is Century Furniture at a higher price point.
Transitional Style Features. Quite possibly the most definitive attribute of this style is that it avoids the extremes such as the ornate character of traditional styles, as well as the extreme austerity of modern styles. Simple and sophisticated lines are generally found in transitional furniture, but not the sharp edges or spare and stark straight lines that you will generally find in contemporary or modern furniture. The lines do not have to be straight but may be gently curved. The curved lines are more gentle and less ornate than the ones you find in traditional furniture. In keeping with its moderate tone, transitional furniture has a medium scale, so the furniture is neither overly large nor minutely small. While there may be carving, it is only used for accents and embellishment, and the ornate elements do not cover any surface uniformly. Generally, you will find subdued colors in wood finishes and upholstery fabrics. The transitional style also leans towards being less formal. The furniture is generally more casual and comfortable. There is a balance of masculine and feminine elements, so you can create rooms that feel comfortable to everyone when you furnish with transitional style furniture.
Textiles and Accessories African style. Textiles should be of saturated colors, eye-catching with its brightness and variegation of ornamental zigzag and diamond-shaped figures on such items as upholstery of chairs, stools, curtains, bedspreads and pillows. You can even make the panels of mottled textiles. This ornament is available on the tableware, carpets and floor lamps. It is allowed to use the skins instead of the carpet. You can apply a lot of things ss accessories, such as bamboo curtains, clay figurines, ivory figurines, amulets, wicker lampshades, wooden blinds, hunting trophies, African masks as well as live plants, such as ferns or palm laurel. Mirror and photo frames made of bamboo or cork looks great in the African interior. However, you should not arrange the ethnic museum at your home. The sense of proportion is still required.
