The color palette for a transitional room are typically smooth and creamy. Creams, light browns, and muted blues, greens and grays, among others. Wood furniture pieces can be dark shades of wood, and are the preferred look for this type of décor as opposed to light oaks. The same color scheme for wood flooring choices also applies, using dark cherry wood, Mahogany, and other dark colored woods. Splashes of color should be limited. A colorful flower arrangement on your dining table or buffet will break up the understated tones in the room, or add accent colors in your dining chair cushions or draperies, are other options.
In the Industrial décor theme, there is typically a draw towards anything rustic. Rustic pieces of furniture, rustic lighting fixtures, décor pieces, and architectural designs, such as old rustic pipes draping down a brick wall, or running laterally across the ceiling. Anything that looks rustic or distressed, gives the look and feel of an industrial setting. When you use rustic pieces, you can also incorporate modern pieces too, such as your dining room chairs and table. The two looks mix together very well.
Furniture from the mid-century was simplistic in design. Clean lines, robust curves, and not overly ornate with their design. Dark woods for your tables and chairs, The most common woos used in this era, and look best for this design, are pieces made of these types of wood, teak, walnut, oak and rosewood. You can mix modern style furniture with older, vintage-style pieces to create this unique look. You may want to consider shopping at flea markets, vintage stores and estate sells to try to get hold of authentic mid-century pieces. These will be quality pieces, and not replicas, although you can go that route if you choose, if it becomes hard to come by pieces you feel comfortable with.
You may want to consider leaving one wall as a focal wall, creating a distressed brick wall for an industrial look, or expose some brick areas on a couple dry wall, walls, as if the brick is coming through. Ceilings, and flooring are also ways to use rustic or industrial types of materials to enhance the feeling of being in a warehouse, barn, or other industrial environment. Wood flooring, or granite all work in an industrial dining room, and your ceiling might really complete the room with large wood beams or exposed piping.
