If you are hesitant about introducing colour then it makes sense to turn to a natural hue like terracotta which works so well in Bohemian style rugs and accessories. Terracotta is one of the main contributors to a classic Mediterranean palette as it is a beautiful natural colour that blends perfectly with the surrounding environment.
Silvery greens from the olive groves that dot the landscape, soft ivory and yellow of the chalkstone hills and rich ochre, umber and sienna from the local soils make up the cornerstone of Mediterranean style. Floor tiles should be a natural stone, ideally terracotta while timber should be a mid to dark tone with a simple matt finish. Corten steel really is a great exterior product which is often used now for accents on houses – if you haven't come across it, I highly recommend you follow it up as it adds a really beautiful statement in a garden setting. So, finally, I still love the decorating mainstays of neutrals and white and I have championed the benefits and appeal of grey in particular for years, but I am very happy to see the warmth and beauty of nautral Terracotta in design once more.
I hope that this article has given you some inspiration to use some beautiful warm colours in your decorating and if you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you in the section below.
