Spanish or Mission style architecture on the outside encourage the use of bright colors, stone, and natural wood on the interior. Above is an example of a transitional kitchen that features bold red walls, matched with stone countertops. Natural oak is used on the floor, while painted cabinets take the look sightly more modern. The cabinets also showcase an arch above the cooktop a common design element that shows up in many more traditional homes.
Stainless steel appliances pop when surrounded by the dark traditional style cabinets. Note the detailing on the doors and drawer faces. Rich color - in this case, red walls help bring the rest of the components in the room forward. Countertops stay neutral and tie back to the white trim and door casing. In this transitional space the various color and textures work together to create a tasteful and pleasing blend of styles.

Transitional style can also be used in the bathrooms of Spanish or Mission style homes. Grey tile in the shower area with a decorative border pops against the dark wood paneling used around the tub surround. Walls and trim stay neutral as the room takes it's color from the other materials.
Transitional interior design
works great in styles influenced by our love of mission.
