Transitional Living Room Design Ideas

A Transitional style living room means a few things! A calming, neutral color palette, limited use of accessories, incorporating many textures and blending contemporary and traditional design styles. Transitional style design is very popular in many homes because of it's inherent ability to be so versatile in any style of home. For instance, if you have a more traditional style living room with moldings and wood features, adding more contemporary style furniture, like clean-lined sofas with asleek wood-trimmed frame would actually create a transitional look perfectly in the space.

Great for larger spaces, a floating sofa in your living room can help define a focal point and create better flow through the space. Some people do this because they lack wall space to create seating areas if furniture is up against the wall. Others prefer this method because it creates an intimate seating area geared toward conversation.

Isn't it funny how no matter how much closed storage you seem to have, you'll always need more? That's why it's always a good idea to invest in decorative baskets for your open storage spaces. They hide what must remain hidden while adding texture and beauty to your space.

Lorelei Gilmore's Living Room

Lorelei Gilmore's Living Room

We wanted to make Lorelai’s space feel loud and energetic without the compromise of comfort. The velvet sofa with a deep seat, and rolled arms, makes for the perfect spot to kick back and binge watch old movies and binge takeout from Luke’s diner or Al’s Pancake World. Quirky trinkets are scattered throughout the space, a result of her impulsive habits that lead her to buy whatever she loves in an instant.

Basement living areas can often feel dark and gloomy due to small windows and a lack of light. Instead of filling the space with artificial lighting, try to brighten the space with lively geometric patterns in high contrast colors.
