What is Eclectic/Transitional Style?
Eclectic/Transitional style is a decorating style that combines traditional and modern. It allows the homeowner to showcase his or her unique taste while still being inviting and relaxing. This style is wonderful if you want a “lighter” traditional feel to your home. There are several ways to get the eclectic/transitional look in your home.

What Colors and Finishes are Eclectic/Transitional?
Transitional/Eclectic style homes tend to use a neutral palette with shades in warmer tones. You want to stay away from anything “fussy” and go for colors that are relaxing and inviting. Pops of black and white look great against a neutral background so rugs, curtains, or picture frames can all be used in these colors. They help pull everything together while keeping it from being “too perfect”.
How can I get the look of Eclectic/Transitional Style?
One excellent way to get this look is to take traditional pieces and give them a modern twist. For instance, you can use fabrics to do this. Think of a traditional wingback chair covered in a fun animal print like zebra stripes. Or bring in fabrics like leather, suede, or chenille. Another way is to add modern touches to a traditional room. For instance, abstract or modern art paired with traditional furniture is a fun and unexpected way to go. Light fixtures are also a great way to achieve transitional/eclectic style. Find unique chandeliers or wall sconces. Most of the time, that one piece is all you need to change a room from traditional to transitional. Mirrored, glass, or metallic furnishings are also a gorgeous way to bring this style into your home. A piece mixed in here and there with your traditional furnishings is an easy way to get eclectic/transitional style.
