Designer Robin LaMonte loves bringing travel items into rooms, and it doesn't have to be a souvenir you picked up on vacation. Instead, buy an atlas (you can find used ones at flea markets) and cut out the states where you vacationed or where you have family, and put them in simple black frames.
A sunny corner is the perfect spot for a cozy reading nook. Naked windows allow ample light in during the day, and personal reading lights take over at night, making this the perfect spot for hours of relaxation.
Black-and-white photos of cityscapes paired with a bold red wall color wall give this transitional living room an air of sophistication. A large white sectional and glass coffee table add refreshing contrast to the vibrant wall and curtain color.
This modern bedroom contains a small office space, complete with two gray chaise lounges and a white wooden desk. A natural wood bookcase is perfect for storing books and other office items, while a T-shaped table provides space for a desk lamp and stacked newspapers.
This alfresco living room combines the comfort of home with the simplicity of the great outdoors. Woven patio furniture enjoys the shade under a custom pergola, while large columns and an outdoor fireplace add a luxurious touch.
Transitional Neutral Living Room with Colorful Accents
Bright, bold throw pillows in multiple colors and floral patterns add color interest to this neutral living room. A traditional grandfather clock in the background anchors the light airy space between picture windows, framed with neutral patterned curtains. A stylish curved line coffee table and patterned area rug also help to frame the space.
Bringing in color and pattern via upholstery, rugs and accessories allows flexibility in a room's design. This sitting room perks up the mood with a striped rug, red-and-white armchairs and pops of green.
Neutral Transitional Dining Room With Beamed Vaulted Ceiling
A trio of arched mirrors rests below a vaulted ceiling in this dramatic neutral dining area. The stylized arches and rustic beams are hallmarks of Mediterranean design, lending international flair to the transitional space.
To make this guest bedroom feel a little more like home, designers added a sitting room to the space. This space features a custom sofa with scalloped nailhead detail and a custom ottoman, both by Coddington Design, a cream leather, vintage Henredon can chair, wallpaper by Osborne and Little and a wool rug.
Dining Room With Bold Turquoise Rug & Purple Tufted End Chairs
A wallpaper accent wall adds a decorative pattern to the elegant look of this transitional dining room. A large turquoise rug grounds the dining table set for eight. The blue and deep purple stripes on the curtains tie in the rug and the purple tufted chairs at the end of the table. The long dining table fills the shape of the room well and is matched with the rectangular shape of the light fixtures.
Gray Transitional Living Room With Large White Mantel
Framed by two floral chairs, a large white mantel accessorized with a round mirror serves as a majestic focal point in this living room. Smooth gray walls and crisp white crown molding keep the room looking sharp and sophisticated while a comfortable leather sofa and colorful patterned chairs create a welcoming seating area. Yellow draperies placed just under the crown molding draw attention to the height of the room, making the space appear larger.
