The Contemporary Transitional Style might best be defined as a mix of Modernism and Traditionalism. This style perhaps allows the most freedom from a design perspective as the style is not so rigidly defined.
Traditional materials, like stucco and stone are often utilized, but ornament is minimized or treated in a non-traditional way. Modern forms (like a rectilinear white stucco structure might have a Traditional-styled terra cotta roof or an aged wooden door.
In order to create interest, traditional elements are juxtaposed against more modern ones. The style is not looking to the past for definition, but still borrows freely from it.
