Mediterranean Interior Design
Mediterranean design is usually associated with summer season, yet it is more about creating simple, uncluttered spaces, for protection against high temperatures. This interior design is used mainly for countryside holiday houses, away from the city, but some accents can be exploited into an urban decoration project.
A home decoration project with Mediterranean inspiration uses arches and curved spaces, with a combination of polished (glossy) and unfinished textures. The result is a setting shaped by a natural dynamic. The interior design inspired by Europe’s East Coast (France, Italy and Spain) has a casual energy and is very friendly and relaxed, thanks to the natural colors and fabrics.
With inspiration from the Greek residences we recommend some very popular accents in that area, with blue and green as fine complements for white walls (both interior and exterior).
