Marrying Transitional and Rustic Style

Transitional style—a combination of contemporary and traditional design elements—is really big in home design these days and we love the timeless feel it evokes.  We also  love to pair the transitional look with a rustic mountain feel that’s perfect for the Western lifestyle.    Below are some examples of Transitional Mountain style – which also overlaps with Rustic Contemporary style.

This is a great explanation of transitional design from Houzz:

“Through its simple lines, neutral color scheme, and use of light and warmth, transitional style joins the best of both the traditional and modern worlds.”

With its updated traditional appeal and natural wood and stone finishes, this family room marries transitional and rustic style in one harmonious space.


Transitional Kitchen & Dining room

This dining room is a great example of transitional with it’s traditional styling paired with more contemporary furniture pieces.   With its wood floors and beams it could easily work in a mountain environment.

We’ve also picked out a few beautiful transitional products that would work well in Western homes.

This Arteriors lamp is one of our top 5 ambient light fixture picks

Modern Classic Galbraith Bedding from Eastern Accents would look stylish in a Colorado bedroom.

At Home on the Range, mountain transitional is one of the four main styles we’ve noticed that are important in current Colorado design. We would love to help create a Western interior design scheme perfect for you and your lifestyle. Do you like the mountain transitional look, or do you prefer mountain contemporary, mountain lodge or Old West style? Leave a comment to let us know!
