Glass tabletops are trendy and offer an element of reflectivity, which can make a room feel more illuminated. Their transparency can also make a room look larger, which is always good if you're dealing with a smaller space. A drawback to a glass tabletop is that they rarely have the ability to expand.
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.
The 1950’s was a time when dark rich and robust colors were abundant in homes. Dark yellows or golden tones, saturated browns greens, oranges and other neutral tones, such as deep browns. So many of these colors were used in combination for a colorful display on patterned furniture, rugs, draperies and wall colors. Wallpaper was also a big trend for the 50’s, so if you prefer to create a focal wall of vintage style wallpaper, that will give you a starting point to lead you to where you want to take your décor theme for the rest of the room.
Lighting is important, and finding the perfect chandelier and other lighting options can help to make or break the look of the room. You want your lighting to not only be beautiful, but functional, and for many people, they want their light fixtures to be a sort of work of art. Look for unique modern beauties for your main chandelier. Many modern lighting fixtures fit into the mid-century era and they can be phenomenal. Just make sure you choose something that is scaled to your room and table size. Keep in mind, this is not a strict, must-match era, so you do not have to worry so much with making your table lamps perfectly coordinate with your chandelier or wall lights. Have fun. Be creative. And choose your light according to what really speaks to you.
