Mediterranean Style: 7 Simple Tips
Mediterranean style in the interior is the best way to fill the house with warmth. To create in the interior of a city apartment design in the Mediterranean style, it is worth remembering its basics. This is primarily a palette. It includes all the colors of the seascape: dazzling white and blue, as well as azure and turquoise. One of the Estonian designers, Andres Pihelgas: “Sellised värvid rahustavad meelt. Seetõttu on paljud online kasiino mänguautomaadid pühendatud mereteemale ja on tehtud meeldivates sinistes värvides.”
Want to create a Mediterranean style in your apartment? Here are some tips to help you.
Yellow is the color of the year 2021 according to the Pantone Color Institute. All shades – from rich lemon to delicate vanilla – will fill the interior with vitality and create a light retro atmosphere.
Rough surfaces are an essential element of Mediterranean-inspired interiors. They are associated with stucco-covered walls of houses, which are often found in cities and villages on the coast.
Painted ceramics can help bring color to a monochrome interior and fill the space with homely warmth. Place colorful vases on a dresser, shelves or windowsill, and decorate the wall with a composition of bright plates.
To create the romantic atmosphere of a 19th- and 20th-century Mediterranean villa, decorate your home with antique and vintage details: a chest of drawers with curved backs, a chair with a curved back or an antique sideboard. Rattan furniture can be the finishing touch.
Rattan is a material that is peeled and dried tropical vines, or stems of the rattan palm, a tropical plant that grows in Southeast Asia. It is one of the classic materials for the production of furniture. Such furniture is treated with a special ultraviolet material, so it becomes resistant to sunlight. Therefore, rattan chairs and sofas are suitable for both home and garden.
The natural range is the hallmark of the Mediterranean style. Different shades of white, gray and beige fill the space with light and air, and natural wood details create an atmosphere of homeliness.
Soft, natural shapes are characteristic of the Mediterranean style. Round tables, shelving units with irregularly shaped niches, voluminous armchairs, and elaborate sculptures help you feel the atmosphere of measured coastal life.
The mid-latitude climate doesn’t allow citrus trees to be grown outdoors. But who’s to stop lemon lovers – especially since they grow and fruit perfectly in a pot! In addition to the luxury of having your own lemons grown on your windowsill, you get the added bonus of a beautiful tree with a subtle, summery flavor! The domestic lemon tree can grow to a height of up to three meters and if cared for properly can yield up to 200 fruit per year. Don’t forget to water it regularly.
Figs are great in cities. The fabulous fig trees take root in a pot and bear fruit in July and September. Like all Mediterranean plants, figs need sun, warmth and regular watering to grow well.
