ith our new style guide you can now veritably relocate your home straight to Southern Europe with this Summer’s hottest home decor scheme, the Mediterranean Collection. Let yourself be inspired by nature and combine earthy tones - warm terracotta browns and deep olive greens, with stunning, tactile and rustic textures. The Mediterranean Collection brings the charm of Southern Europe to your home.

The Mediterranean style is a true feast for the eyes. Natural fibres that are rich in texture are the perfect choice for soft furnishings in this collection. Perfect for entertaining, the colour palette creates an inviting atmosphere and its deep shades are perfectly balanced with delicate nature inspired branch motifs. Designer lighting in soft organic shapes with translucent glass and abstract forms set the tone for final decorating touches with luxury home accessories. The Mediterranean Collection is a truly jaw-dropping decor style that is completely timeless and adaptable to any season.


DESIGNER HOME DECOR PIECES IN OLIVE GREENS AND TERRACOTTA BROWNS ARE THE PERFECT MATCH

The use of deep tones is a sophisticated way to add colour to any timeless neutral scheme. In the Mediterranean Collection, dark greens take inspiration from the region’s typical olive trees and terracotta orange browns and reminds us of Sicilian red brick villas. Dark, dusty shades are perfect for larger items such as luxury furniture, but also work really well in small doses as accents, in soft furnishings such as designer cushions and throws. Finish with luxury table lamps in translucent green glass from designer brands Heathfield & Co and Alexander Joseph to complete the look and the tie the scheme together. Keep the rest of the scheme neutral with greys and taupes. The result is a timeless and elegant, warm colour palette, perfect for entertaining.

Look for colour inherent materials that carry the desired shades in their natural form, such as warm brown leathers and greenish glass lighting or mirrors for an antique look.

Bring the Mediterranean colours to your home using deep shades of olive greens and terracotta oranges.


BRING THE OUTSIDE IN: PLAY WITH DESIGNER WALL LIGHTS AND HOME ACCESSORIES INSPIRED BY NATURE

Motifs inspired by nature balance the dark colour shades of the scheme and bring a sense of lightness to the space. Look for delicate branches and detailed leaves to add softness and a touch of playfulness to this style. Materials such as bronze and gold metal, often used in luxury lighting, make the designs stand out and inject an extra touch of luxury. L For soft furnishings, choose patterns woven in metallic threads for a similar effect and a coherent aesthetic. Designer brand Michael Aram has stunning nature inspired designs such as the beautiful Tree of Life throw below, and the Olive Branch and Palm collections. Avoid florals and go big on stems to achieve the perfect dry Summer look.

Luxury mirrors and designer wall lights with lustrous metal detailing are the perfect pieces to showcase tree branch designs and achieve a contemporary and sophisticated Mediterranean style.

Soften the dark colour palette for this style with luxury home accessories and designer lighting that display delicate branch designs and organic leaf motifs.


DESIGNER LIGHTING IN ORGANIC SHAPES HELPS TO CREATE A COSY AND INVITING ATMOSPHERE

Nature doesn’t have hard, straight edges. The use of organic lines brings a feeling of the natural world into the interior. The gorgeous Leaf Wall Sconce by Heathfield & Co appears to climb the wall, and this is echoed in the Tree of Life cushion. The intricate beading has a reflective quality, reminiscent of the morning dew, as it captures the light. There is something of a Lunar quality to the round Bronte pendant light, and what is more evocative of the mediterranean than an olive branch? Scented candles add a layer of flattering and soothing light, and the fragrances take you away to far away places. Metallic finishes with rustic forms and finishes create a wonderful aura of reflected light, whilst not overpowering the quiet scheme.

Choose irregular and curvilinear shapes to echo nature.

Combine metals with rustic finishes to enhance the organic feel of your space.


LUXURY BEDDING IN NATURAL TEXTURES HELP CREATE A COSY AND INVITING ATMOSPHERE

The tactile properties of natural fibres can make us feel more at ease in a space, as well as encouraging social connections. For the perfect Mediterranean style bedroom, invest in designer cushions and bedding made from cotton and linen which will give a rustic feel to the scheme. Look for designer pendant lights and table lamps that have organic shapes; apart from looking stunning they will also provide a unique diffused light to the space. Designer brand Heathfield & Co is a go-to choice. Furniture with curved shapes automatically convey a relaxing and cosy vibe worthy of holidays by the Mediterranean.

Display your luxury games as art pieces in their own right, and make them part of the design scheme instead of hiding them inside a cupboard.

Accessorise with soft furnishings made from natural fabrics such as linen and cotton and complement this with lighting and furniture pieces in abstract organic shapes.


INTERESTING WALL FINISHES CAPTURE THE LIGHT, REMINISCENT OF A RUSTIC MEDITERRANEAN VILLA

Developed in Ancient Egypt and refined by the Romans, Stucco Lustro Veneziano, or Venetian Polished Plaster has long been a method used to create warmth and reflect light. The Leoni Antique Brass Lustre Pendant by Heathfield & Co is the perfect partner. The borosilicate glass gains its organic shape as it is formed using flames to distort the oval shape. Its irregular surface creates alluring pattern of light, which add interest to any wall finish, and in this example, perfectly enhances the depth and texture of the polished plaster wall. To add a touch of modernity, whilst still using organic shapes, the Villa Lumi Sydney floor lamp has a tree-like quality, but with a smoother finish. Curved sofas provide both a luxurious place to recline, and continue the sense of nature. For the Mediterranean Collection, the olive green velvet is the perfect complement. Retaining the tactile nature of this scheme are the leather-clad pieces in the Pinetti Connect Four game, which inject a bit of fun into what is a well considered collection.

Tactile surfaces are enhanced when light is placed close to them.

To avoid an overpoweringly rustic scheme, juxtapose with smooth surfaced pieces.


FINISH THE LOOK BY COMBINING RUSTIC DESIGNER CUSHIONS WITH A SOPHISTICATED BACKGAMMON BOARD FOR EFFORTLESS ELEGANCE

Luxury games from the Italian brand Pinetti are a fun addition to any interior or exterior, especially when they come in just the right colour palette for your design scheme. They are true conversation pieces and will make all your dinner parties or games nights that bit more interesting and enjoyable, with their tactile finishes and elegant looks. Finish off the styling by checking if additional accessorising is needed, and if that’s the case, designer scatter cushions are always a go-to solution. Make sure to keep all home accessories in line with the warm shades of the scheme and pay attention to the details as they can make or break the design. Always invest in quality for an elegant home decor look.

Display your luxury games as art pieces in their own right, and make them part of the design scheme instead of hiding them inside a cupboard.

Designer home accessories following the same colour palette of the scheme help complete the scheme in a considerate and luxurious manner.

Embrace the Mediterranean Collection, inspired by summer holidays and inject that feeling into your interior, all year round. With its enduring design, be sure this home decor scheme will be treasured for years to come. Bring nature inside with olive greens and terracotta browns and transform your home into an inviting and sophisticated destination to entertain friends as well as being your own relaxing haven in which to relax and decompress at the end of a long day.
