Inspiring Tips for Mediterranean Bedroom Design


This interesting interior style mix up the colors of surf, sand and earth to create magic in your home. The warm colors and exotic interior designs have helped this style to be famous, popular and high demand all over the world. Mediterranean interior design is casual but dramatic with a focus on vibrant colors, light, natural texture, and European charm.
This style is coming from Mediterranean places and usually is suited for places with warm or really hot climate. We present you some clever tips to decorate your exotic dream bedroom in Mediterranean style and make your interior more functional and aesthetic with some simple changes.
First of all colors are so important and striking feature in this style because they  create interest and help to balance bold Mediterranean furnishings and fixtures.  Once your walls have a neutral but textured look, add some vivid color to your design. Here are included warm, natural bright colors, resembling that of the sea, azure, sky, peaches of an ocean sunset, sunshine and sands, but try to avoiding bright tones of red and pink.
Other thing important of this style is the letting the light inside. Although the colors inside are vivid and bright you need more light too. Make light an integral element in your rooms by keeping the window simple and airy with blinds.
Add some tiles or mosaics. They are symbols of the Mediterranean style. If your floor is not made of tiles, you can add a mosaic that will help you to achieve the same exotic effect.
Bring inside some natural outdoor element  that will give your home a warm feel by decorating with plants. Green plants will give you softness to the home decor and will help you to keep the look more fresh and bright.
Find the right accessories that will be hallmark for you and they will play a significant role in your Mediterranean bedroom design. You can display rustic wood beams, filigree light fixtures, wrought iron sconces, art frames, and banisters. All that will add a touch of stylish interior, create a focal point in Mediterranean interior design, and make a balance of the bright colors and large furniture pieces.
Mediterranean interior design is not so expensive and everybody can afford it. If your bedroom have good natural light and you love combinations of vivid hues and bold accents, you’re halfway there.

Silverhurst Residence













































Project Description

VIVID Architects prepared the initial concept design for this home, a contemporary reboot of the more classical architectural styles. SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and ANTONI ASSOCIATES were then appointed to refine & develop the design and oversee the project to completion. The facade is Georgian inspired but the modern aspect of the look is driven by a dynamic of recessed and projecting panels and cubes that create courtyards and terraces that articulate and add interest to what is a highly organised shell. The interiors, by ANTONI ASSOCIATES, are equally sculpted.
Entering the house, a large light-filled entrance hall divides the two ground-floor wings which consist of a series of living spaces that open out to a private courtyard and the very edgy Franchesca Watson landscaped garden beyond.
For the design ethic within the house, ultra-slick finishes and a futuristic home-tech edge were chosen. Stripped back ceilings with recessed details cleverly hide curtain tracks and act as a mechanism through which wooden feature walls can disappear out of sight, lending each room a clean crisp finish. Clusters of directional spotlights were selected to add ambience and subtly highlight architectural nuances, such as the floating stairs.
Natural materials were used to add warmth and texture throughout. Jerusalem stone flooring extends from the main entrance through most of the internal and external spaces giving way to fumed oak floors in the living and dining areas, as well as American cedar for the doors and pergolas and Ipe for the pool decking.
This natural but uncluttered linear language was carried through to the decor by Mark Rielly of ANTONI ASSOCIATES who opted for solid timber pieces. Leather and suede were chosen for the upholstery. Feature lights are also strategically placed to add drama and definition to different spaces. The symbiosis between the decor and architecture is such that the overall impression is that of a clean but carefully considered scheme that soothes with its high-end modern appeal.

Feng Shui





This has Feng Shui written all over it, such calm, I love this design.















This is a great example of why I love black, you can throw in that Pop of color in your accessories and change them as often as you like without investing a lot of money to change your decor. Their options here are to change the area rug, art, side chair, table or mirror. Spend the money on your basics like your sofa's and main pieces. NEVER buy a floral sofa, for example, you will be stuck with the colors in it and it will not leave you the option for change.


 










You can see the color options in this photo, let your imagination wonder.
