Traditional style focuses on classic looks and colors with an attention and focus on detail.  Rich colors and luxurious fabrics are in the forefront with a harmonious and warm backdrop. Traditional style interiors are comforting and classic.  Traditional decorating is calm, orderly, and predictable. Furnishings are classic.  All items placed in a space will be complimentary. Traditional style homes feel comfortable for any age group. 


Transitional style includes a balanced blend of traditional and contemporary furnishings.  It is a unique marriage of traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials and fabrics equating to a classic, timeless designs. Furniture lines are simple yet sophisticated, featuring timeless profiles. Fabric is as diverse as bold, graphic patterns on overstuffed sofas and sumptutious textured chenilles on sleek wood frames.


Contemporary style is often defined by clean lines with a casual atmosphere, open spaces, neutral colors, and elements and materials inspired by nature.  Furniture pieces feature softened and rounded lines as opposed to the stark lines seen in modern design. Interiors contain neutral elements and bold color, and they focus on the basics of line, shape and form. Contemporary homes will have a clean and crisp feel to them.
