Wanting to add a touch of Greece, Italy or Spain to the house? You’re in luck, because we’ve created the coolest Mediterranean style guide to help you get on your feet when redesigning your house. We’ve also added some local Shellharbour builders to help bring your ideas to life.
Create a stunning archway
You can see them all over places like Greece and Tuscany. Beautiful, rounded open doorways to welcome you into the room. They are also a popular window shape—so you have unfettered views of the gorgeous outdoors. By implementing an archway, you can make a bold statement and open up your interior, making your room seem larger!
Add some trees
Whether they stand tall in a pot by your armchairs, or spice up the wall in a wall pot, bringing some lush greenery indoors will make you feel like royalty! Having a range of fern plants, birds of paradise or small palms inside will really add to the Mediterranean essence you want to create. Keep them in terracotta planter pots and your space will look like a palace from Athens!
Patterns are everything
The best way to add a subtle touch of the Mediterranean to your home is to opt for lusciously patterned rugs and wall decor. Whether you wish to lay down a few Persian-style carpets or one huge spread, a rug is a great way to complement an already existing colour scheme, or theme. They don’t have to be confined to the floor either—hang up a rug on the wall for a unique addition to your space!
Be rustic in the kitchen
For that authentic Mediterranean look in the kitchen, look into rustic elements. Matching your kitchen to the gorgeous, rustic style of their food will certainly transport you to the beautiful hills of Tuscany—without ever leaving your house! Dark coloured wooden cabinets with elaborate finishes, as well as pendant lighting will give your kitchen a classic, homely feel.
