Creating a Transitional Look with Jolie Paint

Transitional style is hugely popular because it perfectly blends traditional and modern elements and delivers a balance of old and new. It offers the best of both worlds, mixing the clean lines of modern interiors with the details and warmth of more traditional spaces.


Transitional Colors

Transitional interiors typically stick to a calming, neutral color palette with a focus on warm whites, greys, and tans. Add depth to the space with accents of darker blues and greens.


Transitional Finishes

While transitional style is all about the mix, when it comes to your painted finishes you'll want to steer clear of anything too rustic or distressed. On more modern, clean lined pieces, apply a Smooth Finish, and on more traditional items apply a a Basic Finish for a soft, hand painted look. Transitional interiors are a great place to incorporate metallic elements, so try applying Gilding Wax or Metal Leaf to small furniture details and home accessories.
