Single Family New Build Home
Design in Details
Transitional is a hybrid design style of traditional-meets-modern. Emerging in most metropolitan areas, it compliments the lifestyle of young families in first homes. It’s a useful style direction when two design styles need to merge, either to fit each partner’s belongings or to fit with the existing structure and finishes of a newly purchased home.
Customizing these finishes helped turn this custom-built home (drawn up to feature a traditional style) embody a more transitional and modern direction. Addressing the finishes from the beginning allowed my clients to customize the spec house of their dreams.
Pulling this look together required concise communication from the entire team. When mixing such modern materials, scale and application are just as important as the textures and colors. This room was transformed from traditional into youthful and modern. Sometimes, people confuse minimalist and modern, but this is an example of how to keep things modern while still using multiple materials, colors and finishes – anything but minimal.
