Transitional Dining Room Great for Entertaining

A wide-plank farmhouse-style table seats ten in this transitional California dining room. Chairs are upholstered in a casual stripe, and sleek finishes and clean lines balance the rough-hewn surfaces of the wood and tile. Neutral draperies provide privacy and block bright sunlight.

Kitchen Features Soft Colors, Mix of Styles

A cerused wood farmhouse table surrounded by ten tailored, ticking-striped chairs creates a pleasing combination in this transitional California dining space. The kitchen beyond is monochromatic, with wood plank, white-painted cabinetry topped by white marble countertops and backsplash.

Pattern Ties Spaces Together

Tumbled stone tile laid in a random, intricate pattern connects the kitchen, dining room and landing of this transitional California home. White walls and clean lines are balanced by rustic finishes, including the dining table's weathered wood-plank top. Wide windows are dressed with traditional draw draperies for privacy.

Eat-In Kitchen Blends Contemporary With Country

A big picture window creates a sunny eat-in nook in this transitional California kitchen. The all-white cabinetry is sleek, modern and topped by thick-cut white marble. Tumbled tile underfoot gives the room a casual vibe, as does the striped fabric on the benches that accompany the picnic-style dining table.

Modern Faucet in Transitional Kitchen

The kitchen faucet in this transitional California home is as sleek as the Calacatta marble countertop that surrounds it.

Charming, Transitional Eat-In Kitchen

The casual dining space in this transitional California kitchen features contemporary built-in cabinetry with a thick marble countertop. Large windows showcase the stunning Corinthian Island view, while translucent shades filter the sun's bright light. A bench at the long, picnic-style table is covered in a casual stripe.

Transitional Sitting Room Invites Conversation

A tranquil landscape looms so large in this sunny corner it feels as if one could step into it. The modern, graphic fabric on a pair of wicker chairs echoes the intricate lines of the leaded glass windows. Weighty accessories of varying heights on the round table balance the artwork and bring proportion to the space.

Transitional Reading, Conversation Nook

Accessories of varying heights on a round table balance the large painting that hangs in this transitional living room. The modern, graphic fabric on a pair of wicker chairs echoes the lines of the leaded glass windows. A soft throw and a small hexagonal table create a functional, pretty spot for reading.

Bold Strokes in Sunroom

A streamlined sofa with a waterfall skirt gets a hit of bold, gradient color in this transitional California sitting room. From the vibrant accent wall to the large striped ottoman-turned-coffee table, bright blues and bold patterns create a space that's at once dynamic and relaxing.

Fearless Mix of Pattern in California Sunroom

A mix of bold patterns and colors dominates this sunroom. The streamlined sofa is upholstered in a bold blue hue that gets deeper as it falls to a waterfall skirt. A large, striped ottoman is multifunctional, serving as a coffee table or as overflow seating when the homeowners entertain.

Master Bedroom Becomes Contemporary Coastal Retreat

A bright, airy master bedroom opens onto a sunny private terrace, giving this San Francisco Bay-area home the feel of a Caribbean paradise. From the cerused hardwood floors to the natural fibers on the chair and bedding, soft colors rule this tranquil retreat. Draperies blend with the white walls to visually expand the space.

Streamlined, Storage-Rich Guest Bedroom

Space is maximized in an angled upstairs bedroom of this transitional California home. A built-in paneled, upholstered headboard offers custom storage above. Meanwhile, a nearby niche features a desk built for two that takes advantage of San Francisco Bay views.

A Cozy Corner on a California Island

A woven sectional sofa provides a great perch overlooking Corinthian Island, a tiny enclave off the tip of California's Tiburon Peninsula. A collection of soft pillows adds a homey feel to the vignette, while a neutral palette with minimal pattern avoids competing with the view.
