Hello everyone! I'm Jessica, a writer from Arcadian Lighting, which is a wonderful online source for lighting fixtures and interior design inspiration. I'm delighted to be guest posting for Michelle today because I'm going to introduce you to a lovely interior design trend know as transitional style. The beauty of this style is that it mixes a variety of old and new together to create rooms that are not uniquely inspired by one era or region. I hope you enjoy!
I love the combination of the Asian cabinet, faux zebra skin rug and gold leaf mirror frame in this vignette. The variety of colors and textures is beautiful and draws the imagination to different parts of the world, too.
The sleek contemporary furnishings and traditional wainscoting and chandelier are a beautiful contrast in time periods. The cool blue and white color palette is very chic.
The unique ceiling light is definitely quirky and eye-catching. Such a statement piece goes well in a room that is otherwise fairly traditional.
A brightly colored sari and monochrome zebra rug are always brilliant accents in a room, and this bedroom is no different. The exotic textiles add a dramatic flair to the simple, modern furnishings.
I love the heavy, ornate wooden furniture in this bedroom because the unexpected details draw the eye and add visual interest. Even the pendant lights are an interesting shape.
The fresh floral colors in this living room are so lovely, especially in the chinoiserie-esque artwork. The sleigh chairs are a 1940s style and the heavy drapes are a more classical decoration.
Bold colors and patterns throughout this room lend a definite energetic atmosphere. The mix of décor draw from many different time periods and regions.
A warm, neutral color palette and subtle tropical accents go beautifully with simple modern furnishings, like the wooden nightstand and framed artwork in this bedroom.
