I’m going back to my Scandinavian roots with this beautiful Dining Room inspiration. I adore a beautiful, red dining room. If there’s any room in the home that just feels right painted red, it would have to be the dining room where we gather with our friends and family during the Holidays to nourish not only our bodies but our hearts, as well. I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I do!

- Blends the best of traditional and contemporary design
- Softens the sharper edges of contemporary decor; mixes in a few turned legs or a plaid
- Furniture profiles are simple but sophisticated with gentle curves
- Using fabrics like chenille, corduroy, ultrasuede or microsuede, leather and even smooth cottons
- Usually transitional decor is marked by a restrained palette enhanced by pattern and texture
- Use of woods like maple, birch, mahogany in natural finishes; liberal use of glass and metals
- Like contemporary decor, transitional frequently uses minimal accessories
This Transitional room designed by Velvet Hammerschmidt, showcases both traditional and contemporary elements. Simple dining chair profiles paired with a rich wood table and light wood floors speak to contemporary design but then the chandelier, mirror and chair in the entry hall have much more traditional leanings. Even looking into the living room I see a traditional accent chair but modern glass and metal stacking side tables.

The Family of leather, stone and wood ~ INSTINCT fuses the ancient, mythological, raw, and the primitive with a highly technical modern-day aesthetic. Instinct belongs to a citizen of the world with grown-up tastes and could be simply described as a mix of ethnic and modern sophistication.
