Not understanding your style can lead to expensive mistakes and disjointed spaces. A good rule of thumb is that 70% of your room should be in one particular style.
Contemporary design is clean, simple, uncluttered, and often neutral with graphic designs.
Transitional is more of a lifestyle look. Comfort is key with many ingredients such as soft textiles or leather, reclining sofas and chairs, and multi-purpose furniture in this family friendly style.
Traditional styling can also be called Old World or Tuscan and is rich in details and often heavily accessorized. Composed of classic sofas and chairs embellished with antique, beautiful textiles including damask and chenille, this style sets the standard for comfort and stability.
