Transitional Classic

Updated View of Classic Design

The transitional classic style is an updated view of classic design and often combines traditional details, sumptuous furnishings, and an abundance of accessories with more modern elements. It is rooted in European sensibilities but with a touch of the unexpected that feels stylish and contemporary.

Neutral Color Palettes

Homes with traditional classic styling often feature dark finished wood, relatively neutral color palettes punctuated by accents of rich color, and a variety of textures and curved lines.

Patterns and Textures

Furnishings have less elaborate and ornate details than traditional style but anchor to plush fabrics, like velvet, silk and brocade, which may include a variety of patterns and textures.

Layered and Dimensional

There’s depth, layering and dimensionality within most transitional classic designs that feels warm and inviting.
