Why Transitional Decor Design May Be Right For Your Mobile Home

Transitional decor design may not be the type of home decor you are familiar with but it is one of the easiest and most common types of home decor around. According to Spruce.com transitional style is described as “a balanced blend of traditional and contemporary furnishings and decor.”

Many who like a “lighter” traditional look choose this style because transitional decor tends to span multiple decades and always looks fresh. Transitional decor retains the classic lines of traditional styles, but the colors and furnishings are typically more modern in their appearance.

How to Create Transitional Decor Design Yourself

The elements of transitional decor are pretty simple and include:

  1. Starting with a neutral palette
  2. Keep the accessories to a minimum (less is more)
  3. Combine your favorite pieces with new ones to create the look you love
  4. Create a contrast using different textures and fabrics
  5. Keep the window treatments simple with a solid color that compliments the palette you are using

An important thing to keep in mind when creating this decor style is to pick pieces that can stand alone while still working well together. Also, you will want to keep the textures and colors to around four or five shades that will work together throughout your home.

We’ve found several great examples of how to pull this look together, take a look!
