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.
Asian Inspired Colors. Black and red are two colors that spring to mind when furnishing in an Asian inspired style. These colors are often found in Chinese inspired interiors. The color red is supposed to bring good luck and happiness according to Chinese traditions. For a dramatic Asian-inspired room, red works especially well. You need just one piece to give the room a jolt of color and drama. If red is not your color, black works very well to anchor a room. This is especially true when you are furnishing in a style that leans more towards a Japanese style because then most colors will be in shades of gray, tan, green or leaning towards neutral. Use brighter, richer colors for accent. Gold and silver can also be used for accent, and you will often find them in surface treatments such as gold or silver leaf or paint, or in beautifully designed hardware.
