Don’t shy away from traditional design out of fear that its facets are truly interesting, since it incorporates a plentitude of antiques. It can actually incorporate elements from England, France, or even the far east. Styles and pieces reflect historical design elements using natural materials  and colors.

Traditionally Styled Living Room

Strives For Harmony And Order
Consistency is key, as traditional design seeks to create a calm, orderly space, and everything seems to  just go together. Wild and chaotic do not jive with traditional design.

Dark, Warm Tones Define The Color Palette
In traditional design, you'll typically find neutral walls but color totally has a place. Art, textiles, and decor  accents can help pop a room, and dark, rich jewel tones are most commonly used. Think red, brown,  green and plenty of dark wood.

Contemporary style encompasses a range of styles developed in the latter half of the 20th century. Pieces feature softened and rounded lines. Interiors contain neutral  elements and bold color, and they focus on the basics of line, shape and form.

Interiors feature tone-on-tone color palettes
Contemporary style relies heavily on brown, taupe, cream and pure white.  Shots of color are sometimes found on a single wall, furniture, a striking floor rug or in a special piece of art.

Furniture pieces feature clean lines and smooth surface 
Silhouettes are slim without being dainty. Furniture is made of light-  colored woods such as maple and birch (which also have minimal  graining), frosted or clear glass, stainless steel, nickel and chrome.

Neutral colors with pops of bold
Tones of gray, brown, blacks and whites are the basis of a  contemporary room. Keeping the backdrop neutral allows  metal details and pops of color to shine through. It also opens  the door for getting creative with textures and patterns.

Transitional style strikes the right balance between contemporary and traditional design. Creating a space that is harmonious rather than cluttered. It  effectively fuses and unites different shapes, lines and fabrics. One of the greatest traits of a transitional space is the combination of metal or glass with plush furnishings.

Create an open layout

Mix wood and metal furniture
Industrial spaces are all about mixing the old and the new. One of the simplest ways to drive home this contrast is through juxtaposing different types of wood and metal throughout the design  Metal isn’t just for fixtures, it can be used for anything from shelving units to kitchen bar stools.
