All Couches Point To The Table

The main fixture of the Mediterranean living room is the central table, so the central table needs to be carefully selected. That doesn’t mean that the central table needs to be flashy—indeed, it’s important to remember that the Mediterranean living room style is a homage to the Mediterranean way of life.

Imagine the central table as a place to put dishes of hummus or slabs of pita. It should look good without anything on it, but its real purpose is to prop up the more interesting stuff—like a bottle of wine, perhaps—and get out of the way of the quality time spent with people.

On that note, make sure that any couches that you select for your Mediterranean living room design aren’t the ultra-huge and ultra-comfortable type of couches that you could easily sink into. The couches for this style of the living room should be at their most comfortable when one of your guests is leaning forward to reach the table or perched sideways to speak to their conversation partner.

Airy And Breezy Pastels

Natural light plays a huge role in the Mediterranean living room style, so make the most out of any windows that you have. Be sure to complement natural light with lightly colored linens, and use dark fabrics, woods, and leathers extremely sparingly, if at all.

If you’re itchy to add some dark colors to your otherwise bright living room, try adding a plant or two. The greens of the plants will contribute to the airy feeling of the room, and also provide a visual reminder that there’s natural light flowing into the room during the daytime.

Artificial light should be gentle, and on the dimmer side, especially if you plan on using your Mediterranean style living room to entertain guests—as you certainly should. Having a large lamp in the corner is a decent solution, so long as it fits in with the rest of the aesthetic.

The Mediterranean conjures up images of beaches, salty vapor in the air, and wide open skies.

The Mediterranean design reflects the region with a warm and welcoming sun-kissed feel, partnered with an occasional light cool breeze of color. This is the perfect welcoming motif for a living room or family room.

Light is important to Mediterranean design. Wide open archways and large windows are hallmarks of this style. Letting as much natural light into the space as possible is important.

Mediterranean design is marked by the liberal use of sun-soaked light colors matched with rich earthy colors. The classic version of a Mediterranean room blends warm terracotta floors and off-white stucco walls. Other colors that can fit the theme with liberal use include earthy browns, gold, rusts, ochre yellows, and bronze.

Accent colors in Mediterranean designs most often reflect sea and sky. These colors range from dusty lavender to cobalt blue. From time to time a brighter red used can be used to accessorize or accentuate a feature. (Source: HGTV.com)

Mosaic tiles and textured surfaces are a hallmark of the Mediterranean. Stucco is in common usage with this style. Surfaces should have depth, such as sand-textured or Venetian plaster walls. These kinds of textures can be cultivated on plain plaster walls through painting techniques such as rag rolling.

To accessorize a Mediterranean design, start with items made of bronze or clay. These kinds of tiles tie the colors and feel of the area in with the overall space. Decorative hand painted tiles can go a long way to evoke the Mediterranean look.

Fixtures are often ornamental, filigree, and bronze. For all metal, it is a safe bet to stay in the range of copper and bronze, as these colors will blend well with the rest of the earth-tones. Wrought iron can also work; as long as the metal fixtures are dark-toned you are in a safe range. The texture is also important here. If you are not a fan of filigree, punched or hammered style metal fixtures can provide a great deal of texture and depth. (Source: Homeportfolio.com)

When looking for furniture for a Mediterranean space, you want heavy, thick furniture. Sturdy pieces of furniture with thick bases and legs. A handcrafted look fits the style, with imperfections made from old woods.

Lastly, Mediterranean living rooms and family rooms are often adorned with a large stone fireplace. (Source: SFGate.com).
