Coastal / Hamptons Style

Coastal style also dubbed Hamptons style, hails from the iconic U.S. beach-side area. Common features include light, airy color palettes with cool neutral shades paired with blues and greens.
Furnishings are often white or beige. The room can contain elements of wood and accessories are often inspired by the sea.
Blue and white striped patterns for pillows, large windows, white plush sofas, and painted white wood are also common fixtures of the classic Coastal/Hampton style.
The intention is to create a relaxed and comfortable environment that is inspired by the beach and ocean.

Traditional / Victorian Style

Traditional design style offers classic details, sumptuous furnishings, and an abundance of accessories. It is rooted in European sensibilities.
Traditional homes often feature dark, finished wood, rich colour palettes, and a variety of textures and curved lines.
Furnishings have elaborate and ornate details and fabrics, like velvet, silk and brocade, which may include a variety of patterns and textures.
There’s depth, layering and dimensionality within most traditional designs.

Modern Style

Modern is a broad design term that typically refers to a home with clean, crisp lines, a simple colour palette and the use of materials that can include metal, glass and steel.
Modern design employs a sense of simplicity in every element, including furniture.
A word that’s commonly used to describe modern style is sleek, and there is not a lot of clutter or accessories involved with a modern style.

Contemporary Design

Contemporary design, on the other hand, “literally means existing right now, in the moment. It is dynamic, fluid and constantly changing, people exploring style through the use of new materials and innovative techniques.

Both designers point out that since contemporary design is an of-the-moment, ever-evolving aesthetic, it may incorporate elements from a variety of design genres including modern, postmodern, futurist, art deco and more.

Contemporary design celebrates balance and incorporates a bit more flair and whimsy than its stark counterpart modern design.

Transitional Style

It’s a marriage of traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials and fabrics equating to a classic, timeless design. Furniture lines are simple yet sophisticated, featuring either straight lines or rounded profiles.
The word “Transitional” has been popping up more and more when it comes to the interior design of spaces.
A lot of clients ask what is the exact meaning of Transitional. In short, it’s a simple blend of both modern design with traditional elements. Transitional design is the balance of old and new with a mix of clean lines, neutral fabrics, and warm colors.

The Transitional style is the perfect alternative to the harsh, rough, and often times boring look modern design brings and the big over the top carved wood feel that traditional design usually brings. When you expertly blend the two styles together the result is an elegant feel that is both comfortable and classic. You know great Transitional design when your guests are nostalgic of everything they love from the past but are also more impressed by how elegant and updated the home looks and feels.

A mix of streamlined and “clean” furniture with neutral color schemes and warm lighting yields a quintessential Transitional design. Natural elements such as wood, stone & granite perfectly complement Transitional spaces as these types of media are common in both modern and traditional design. It is also important to keep the paint colors and fabrics in similar color tones to make your home flow more seamlessly. Floor to ceiling grommet ring, non patterned or sheer drapery panels on the windows or a clean lined, neutral roman shade finish off the design perfectly.

If done correctly, Transitional interior design is a conservative and almost fool proof way to ensure that your house has that impressive look and welcoming feel without risk of it being too cold or even worse too dated or “old school”. We at Eden& grapes Interiors love taking Transitional interiors to the edge and making it something you and your family can’t wait to get home to and show off to your guests; something that is “Perfectly Yours”!
