Beyond Interior Furnishings for the Transitional Home
The transitional concept goes beyond furniture and décor. It also marries traditional and contemporary architecture, finishes, and materials. Think juxtaposed textures and mixed metals used throughout the home, from the fixtures in a kitchen to the hardware for a window unit.
Carried through to window design, a contemporary home might be expected to showcase enormous glass expanses that fill an entire wall and create museum-of-modern-art appeal. Meanwhile, a transitional home can be just as likely to include big glass, but it could welcome views of nature in a variety of ways—through large, double hung windows, casement windows, or picture windows.
