When decorating a Transitional Style bedroom, try for a minimalistic, unfussy look and feel. Simple bedding and furniture look sophisticated and classic in this style room, and minimal clutter help keep this space feeling clean and organized. Furniture should have a combination of curves and straight lines to balance them out without going too modern or too traditional.
Bedding, like the furniture, should be simple. Solid colors are the best bet for getting that Transitional Style down, but you can add a little interest in texture by using fabrics like corduroy or designs like pintuck. The bed is usually the focal point of the bedroom (hence the name!) so bring in some throw pillows with a little color in them to draw the eye.
Transitional Style rooms usually stay away from bright colors and stick with more neutral hues for a calming affect. Some rooms use a background of neutral tones with one or two very small pops of color. Here’s one example of a soft and serene Transitional Style color palette:
This soft, neutral color palette is understated and soothing. The warm vanilla (NW 2) acts as the primary wall color while a darker sage green (ICS 2-4) adds a little depth in the trim. Light gray-brown (NG 32), golden brown (ICS 13-1), and crisp white (NW 1) act as accent colors. The soft white could be used in larger accent pieces like dressers and side tables while the light gray-brown would add a touch of sophistication in the bedding and curtains. The golden brown, the strongest color, should be used sparingly in small pops throughout the room in throw pillows and rugs.
