Furniture

Incorporating natural raw timber in your furniture pieces is a must. The use of curved arches echoes the architecture of the Mediterranean style, as seen in the reflected artwork on the wall opposite.

Bedlinen

The Mediterranean style lends itself to luxurious and layered bedlinens, incorporating texture and pattern. Keeping the colour palette simple and crisp is the key.

Occasional Furniture

By mixing the textures and materials found in your occasional furniture you create a sense of interest. It also lets you incorporate items you may already have into a new style.

A mid to light neutral tone with texture will keep your rooms feeling bright and relaxed. Feltex Stonefields ‘Terrazzo #92’ was used in this beautiful home.

Mirror

White framed oversized mirrors add beautiful light to the room as well as reflecting features like other artwork and lighting.
