Professional Transitional Interior Designer

Transitional design, also referred to as “Updated Classic,” takes the classic elements of design and adds a contemporary twist to them. It blends the comfort of traditional styles with the clean, sophisticated aspects of contemporary design.

The transitional style can cover a variety of design periods, from the Victorian era to the Greek Revival. Because of its rich historical roots, traditional design features characteristics like symmetry and ornate detail. This style is ideal for creating luxury spaces like dining or sitting rooms.

Decorating Den Interiors – Lisa Marble can help you fill your home with the elegance of traditional design. Our years of experience, as well as our extensive catalog of materials, make it easy for you to incorporate transitional elements into your interior design.

Characteristics of Transitional Design Include:

  • Colors. Soft, inviting neutrals like beige, ivory, and tan are popular in transitional design. These colors create an ideal backdrop for more contemporary furniture pieces.
  • Accessories. Minimal accessories that feature straight lines and rounded profiles blend contemporary and traditional design to accentuate a transitional design scheme.
  • Furniture. Warm woods furnishings with straight lines and lacquered finishes tie together contemporary and traditional trends to create a unique look. A lack of ornamentation makes it easy for the eye to appreciate the simple, sophisticated design.
  • Fabrics. A lack of bright color use in transitional design leaves more room to play around with texture and fabric. Combining textural elements of wood, glass, fabric, and steel are common in transitional design.

“I love everything about Lisa; her personality; she got to know my family and my pets. I had heard using a decorator might be too expensive, bit I would say No; you’d be surprised. Your gas and your time can be more expensive than you think. Lisa is not pushy and she’s real interested in how you feel. She can read my face and always seems to work with what I have.”
