The Challenge: Rustic Transitional Style

  • Swap out the flooring for something more appealing and durable
  • Incorporate their piano into the layout

Transitional Rustic Design Inspiration

The client had a gallery of ideas for her transitional rustic space. As a result, she could help guide her designers toward her taste. The client’s inspiration was filled with online living and dining room designs. Her ideas were cohesive, with a neutral palette and small pops of color. In addition, her entryway was accounted for with simple yet sophisticated foyers.

In the end, the entryway and combined living areas are functional and sophisticated. Both spaces are distinct, but the layout also feels cohesive thanks to a harmonious scheme. Contrast comes through abstract art, pops of greenery, and a light floor stain. Moreover, the pendants add ambient lighting, while the layout has a welcoming feel.

The entryway is cozy and elegantly styled. At its center, an area rug and a black pendant anchor this inviting space. Additional lighting in the form of transitional lamps sits on a green console table. On the opposite end, a round mirror makes the interior feel airy and doubles the light. While different in design, both sides hold a cohesive design.

A tall indoor plant sits beside the mirror, mimicking the green side table opposite. In addition, a wooden trunk against the wall has matching beige pillows and provides storage. It echoes the hues from the abstract art and the complete design resembles a natural setting as a result.

The transitional living room has the right blend of rustic décor. While the dining and living areas are separate pockets, they form a unified whole. In addition to the entryway, area rugs ground both of these nooks too. Two pendants create bright lighting, while an extra floor lamp casts a warming glow in the corner of the room.

A rustic extension table is paired with chic farmhouse-style chairs. Furthermore, two small sideboards flank the table and an industrial mirror. The mirror’s sheer size and panels give the illusion of a more spacious room. Additionally, plants and art add life to the space, with the accent rug tying everything together.

In the lounge area, the main attraction is the piano. Besides the comfortable armchairs, there is a black drinks cabinet against the wall. Its dark hue combined with the chair legs, accent table, and lamp brings a touch of contrast to the neutral interior. Lastly, a light shade of off-white wall paint sets a bright backdrop for the room.
