Freshness and warmth with the mediterranean deco style
12 Aug 2019
When summer arrives, the Mediterranean coast becomes a more than desirable place to invest rest time: enjoying the sun, outdoor activities and one of the best valued gastronomic diets in the world. In this post, we tell you how to bring the Mediterranean spirit to your home by applying a few simple changes.
Chromotherapy, the colors of well-being
The Mediterranean not only proposes a decorative trend, but represents a whole lifestyle. It's about moving home the calm you feel when you're relaxed on the beach in the sun while the waves caress your feet. Can you imagine it? There are two colors that will help you recreate this environment: white and blue in their different shades. You can use them to paint the walls or incorporate them into cushions, curtains and bedding fabrics. These colors will bring freshness and tranquility to the rooms of your home. In addition, you can include some details in yellow to provide warmth (a reference to sunlight).
Where less is always more
The Mediterranean character seeks beauty in simplicity. Its architecture tends to be mainly functional, as well as sober and respectful of the landscape. Some of the most used materials are stone, wood, adobe and clay. The spaces should not be overloaded with many elements. For this reason, it is best to decide what function each room in our home has and make it as comfortable as possible without adding unnecessary objects. The use of organic textiles predominates with a natural origin such as linen and cotton.
Connected with nature
To achieve the Mediterranean character in your home, be inspired by nature! It will give you the best clues. You can incorporate decorative details collected in your walks on the beach: stones, empty shells, bottled sand, etc. Always make sure that you do not collect any living being: respecting the natural flora and fauna of the coast is also part of the Mediterranean lifestyle!
In addition, there are other ways to move nature to your home: planting varied vegetation that will provide an incredible aroma (rosemary, lavender, oregano, thyme, jasmine or bougainvillea).
We cannot think of a better way to extend the holidays than by taking the air from the coast to the interior of the house, what are you waiting for to give yours a Mediterranean touch?
