These calm hues are especially good choices for transitional style.
Style Secret: Tone-on-Tone PalettesThe transitional look won’t necessarily suit color junkies. Warm neutrals rule: cream, taupe, tan, khaki, gray, with the occasional hint of chocolate or espresso brown thrown in to ground the palette. Patterns, if used at all, should be understated; skip the punchy florals and Pucci-esque prints. If you just can’t live without a jolt of color, keep it to a few strategic accents — for instance, you might repeat bright turquoise or saturated coral in a piece of artwork, a pair of lamps and a throw pillow or two.Look closer: This living area reads as monochromatic, yet it’s anything but boring. The reason: Strong furniture carries the space, and there’s just enough pattern from the curtains and the grain of the wooden coffee table to break up the swath of neutrals. Plus, the wide windows shed light on subtle shading variations in the walls, upholstery and rug.
The structured shape of the drapery panels combined with a geometric fabric give these drapery panels a clearly defined role in this living room. While pattern and texture play a role, the architectural nature of the vertical lines of these drapery enhance the transitional living space.
