Not Too Masculine, Not Too Feminine
The balance found in transitional design means it can appeal to either gender. This living room has a “his-and-hers” feel, with the soft light and inviting sofa cushions offsetting the hard, chunky lines of the industrial coffee table and natural timber end tables.

Transitional style can have a dash of the eclectic. The modern chandelier and contemporary artwork jolt this living room out of traditional and into transitional.
