Contemporary/Transitional interior design for your Los Angeles home

Contemporary/transitional style in Los Angeles embodies an imaginative hybrid of elements,  skillfully combined, so that rooms feel welcoming and fresh. The sleek lines of modern design are replaced by rounder, softer, yet still, clean shapes. Often the color palette is more neutral with added bursts of color through accessories or art. The L.A. designers seen in this category are innovators, they create spaces that appear effortlessly livable. When done well, as seen here, rooms possess sophistication, personality and tons of style that always feel right for the casual pace of California living.
