To instantly give your home a more coastal feel, create a color palette of rich turquoises or blues. The trick is to mix various shades of blue, but keep them within the same tone.
A key characteristic of the Mediterranean region is its rich history. Use it as inspiration to complete the look and feel of a room.
Tip: Complement your fresh Mediterranean décor by filling your home with the scent of Mediterranean lavender. To freshen up throw pillows and curtains, spritz them with Febreze FABRIC in Mediterranean Lavender. Then add Febreze Candles in this scent to your living room or kitchen to help eliminate odors and fill your home with the aroma of a tranquil overseas escape.
Decorate with light, gently draping fabrics to emulate the Mediterranean coast.
Tip: Simplify your laundry routine by washing your bedding and throws with our lavender-scented Home Made Simple Laundry Detergent. This plant-based detergent is gentle on skin, cleans in cold water and is formulated without the stuff you don’t want, like phosphates, dyes and optical brighteners.
Given the diversity of the Mediterranean and its culture, this region and its sights, scents and colors can provide endless inspiration for décor ideas. The beauty of the region is best displayed when patterns and colors are given the chance to mix and mingle, so feel free to experiment with these styles.
