After a day of work and errands, we crave a comfortable living room where we can relax. And when we need to have a little privacy for a while. Hosting a book club, to feel exciting and fresh.
Top 6 Transitional Living Room For You
Mixing materials and styles to create a fun, versatile, and approachable space is how we create our ideal transitional living room. Looking for a little inspiration? Check out our favorite transitional living room ideas below.
1. Traditional Meets Contemporary
Let’s go over the basics. A transitional living room mixes traditional materials (think brass and tufted leather) with contemporary materials (think cane and chambray) to create a lived-in, yet curated vibe. Transitional living rooms are the perfect space for of-the-moment pieces.
2. Keep Balance in Mind
The key to perfecting that elevated, transitional look in your living room? Balance. Choose neutrals that are relaxing and timeless – nothing too pastel or vibrant. We love chocolate browns and various shades of taupe. For accents, we lean toward jewel tones like mustard yellow and sapphire blue.
3. Play with Textures
Transitional living rooms create a cozy and organic space by playing with textures. Pair a timeless trend like rattan accent chairs with an upholstered sofa for a fun, juxtaposed look. Roll out a soft, vintage-inspired rug beneath a reclaimed wood coffee table. Toss a few velvet lumbar pillows on your sofa or chaise lounge. Your living room will look inviting and elevated.
4. Choose Velvet Details
We love seeing velvet sofas in transitional living rooms. They’re the perfect touch of glam and come in a variety of jewel tones to make your room feel warm and cozy. If you have space, opt for a sectional sofa – they’re perfect for family movie nights.
5. Add a Plush Ottoman
Pair your transitional sofa with a linen-upholstered or leather ottoman. Or pick out a tufted pouf or ottoman and you’ll be set to lie back with a glass of wine. Bonus points for ottomans with wheels – the perfect solution if you need to make more space for a game night or yoga sesh.
6. Pick Out a Statement Coffee Table
You can’t go wrong with a beautiful, sturdy wood transitional coffee table. If you’re leaning toward something bold, opt for a geometric coffee table with thin brass legs.
