Transitional Wallpaper: Its Marvelous Effects
Add Tremendous Character
Decorating or redecorating your home can be enormous fun; but it's not without its challenges. Even if you feel very sure about the mood you'd like to create, and on the colors you really want, narrowing down to one single wall covering can seem impossible. Finding something with say, stripes, in the right color, say blue, still leaves you with literally hundreds of choices. Then there is tone and theme to think about. Many times, the choice between classic and modern is the most difficult. There's a lot to be said for old-world style that has stood the test of time. Yet contemporary designs, patterns, techniques and materials can be very inviting, especially when you're creating a completely new design for your home. If this is a dilemma you're currently wrestling with, you'll be glad to know that transitional wallpaper is out there and may be exactly what you're looking for.
Transitional wallpaper is not limited to any one particular color, pattern, style, or theme. It's an umbrella term for any wall covering that combines traditional motifs and patterns with modern materials, methods, and design techniques. We've all seen typical floral designs featuring roses, acanthus leaves, scrolls, or tropical palm leaves. We may even think those designs have become boring and predictable. However, combining them with something as simple as watercolor makes flowers and leaves seem totally new. This is one of the many ways that transitional wallpaper designs can bring traditional elegance into the modern day.
Familiar motifs are taken in wild new directions in many transitional wallpapers. Black and white inking gives flowers unsurpassed artistic appeal, while softer colors in sharper patterns bring a modern feel to a classic design. Many transitional wallpapers are strippable and easy to remove if you should ever want to. Even animal print designs can take on wild new dimensions that bring new life to bedrooms, recreation rooms, family rooms, or a single wall wherever you want to add a focal point. Looking for something contemporary for the novelist in your life? Classic fonts are brought to life adding whimsy to any office, den, or library. With transitional wallpaper, any time-tested design or motif can be brought into the present day.
Batik-look and stencil-type motifs can be as colorful or subdued as you like. Bringing embellishments or iridescent designs to the table provides even more thrilling design options. Glitter designs on a dark background make an assertive statement in any room or hallway. Look for these in natural motifs like leaves, flowers, trees, or feathers to compliment any décor. Rivet patterns seem old and new at once, and come in both warm and cool colors. Transitional wallpapers in pearlescent and iridescent designs are available in stripes, scrolls, and more.
Transitional wallpapers take even the most overused motifs and transform them into something new and exciting. Simple leaves become a feast for the eyes while wavy lines are transformed into a stunning statement. Unique insect themes become stylized representations of all the beauty of the natural world. Even familiar damask and scroll patterns take on new life when combined with modern inking in contemporary colors. What's more, transitional wallpaper is available in woven, unwoven, or even vinyl materials for durability and longevity.
