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".
Known to be the cradle of civilization, the Middle East is a region steeped in ancient culture and religion – much of which has survived to the present day. It's also an area in which multiple influences meet to create colorful and flavorful styles of art, architecture and interior décor. From the markets of Morrocco and the beaches of Israel to the deserts of Iran, there is plenty of beautiful sights and styles for home design inspiration. Here are some easy ways to implement a Middle Eastern touch. One of the most easily recognizable Middle Eastern (and particularly Islamic) artistic traits is geometric patterns. From the shape of the buildings to the prints in fabrics and artwork, geometric patterns are everywhere. You can add these patterns to your home in the form or area rugs, throw pillows or a piece of framed wall art.
