How to do Mediterranean styling
Mediterranean, a word we come across a lot when it comes to all sorts of trends.
In interior design and decoration it often makes you feel like the sun is shining in your home even if the outside is gloomy.
Hints of Mediterranean decor with a story and a history, combined with the laidback energy and fresh look.
For Zenza the essence of a Mediterranean interior is the word “relaxed”.
Below we give you three important tips to get started with applying this beautifully and effortlessly in your own home.
An all-white interior?
In a Mediterranean interior, many light colors are combined.
Think of different shades of white, sand colors and a touch of a warm color here and there. That keeps the house fresh and light.
But the color white can also come across as very cold and harsh, so you have to use it in the right way.
By playing with texture, and adding those warm colors here and there you keep your space from looking cold.
The wooden furniture and mirrors from the Zenza collection, which have been given a whitewash finish, can be used perfectly in this style.
The color may be called white, but if you look closely you will see a wide variety of whites and the surface is not completely smooth.
That brings liveliness and a lived-in effect.

What does texture do in an interior?
To give depth to the atmosphere, it is important to use different textures in the interior.
The alternation between soft, rough, shiny and dull objects.
Walls painted with chalk paint give a nice matte finish.
Then it is nice to add a slightly shiny piece of furniture to enhance that contrast of a matte wall.
A coffee table with shiny zelige tiles is the perfect match in such a case.
The sometimes tiny pieces of tile are all a slightly different shade, which makes the table top a very interesting surface in your home to look at.
You could never create so much atmosphere with a smooth white table top, then it will become cold and too rigid.
Also the use of home textiles with a beautiful texture, such as our sabra cactus silk cushions
or the blankets of woven cotton are perfect for this look.
