Accessories: Burnished bronze urns, filigree light fixtures and a wrought-iron fireplace screen exemplify a Mediterranean look with a Moroccan influence. Texture: Layers of paint and glaze are hand-rubbed onto plaster or sand-textured walls to add visual depth. Simulate the look of a plaster wall with a textured finish using tinted drywall compound and colored beeswax. Tuscan interiors feature a rustic, sun-baked look characterized by crumbling stone patios, simple and sturdy furnishings with elegant iron accents, terra-cotta tiles, textured wall finishes, elegant, detailed murals and trompe l'oeil designs. Here's how the Tuscan style breaks down: Colors: The rustic Tuscan color palette leans heavily on earthy, unpretentious hues evocative of a Tuscan hillside. Floors: Terracotta tiles, stone with mosaic inlay and worn wood covered with antique rugs are all ways to bring a Tuscan look down to the floor. Accents: Wrought-iron accessories such as candle sconces and light fixtures can reinforce the rustic theme. Other appropriate accessories include painted ceramic objects and tile to bring color and vitality to the design. Architecture: Rough plaster walls often soar to a rustic beamed ceiling. Windows are simple and left bare to take advantage of unfiltered natural light.
Polinesia furniture style. While this remote paradise may seem a world away, you can still bring the look and feel of the South Pacific into your home with island-inspired furnishings and decor. In the tropics, light interiors keep rooms feeling cool and fresh. Walls are typically painted white or off-white, accented by natural wood trim, wood ceiling beams and wood paneling. Interior living spaces often open up to outdoor patios or balconies for a flowing transition between indoors and outdoors. The isolation of island life encourages the use of locally sourced natural materials, giving interiors a very organic feel. Allow plenty of natural light to enter rooms by using sheer curtains on windows. If you prefer a little more color on walls, go with a light beige or cover walls with teak or bamboo paneling.
Think of the draped, makeshift doorways of a busy outdoor markets or the costume of a belly dancer. Colorful fabrics are also a staple in Middle Eastern decor. You can implement your own colorful fabrics as sheer curtains, valences or used as a canopy to dress up a tall ceiling. Bronze or gold metal antique oil lamps, candle sticks or framed mirrors are a throwback to earlier Arabian eras and can give your home a more traditional Middle Eastern vibe. Select a set of intricately designed bronze candle holders or outdoor lanterns to add to the atmosphere. A cozy pallet draped in soft carpets and pillows can be a great addition to any home – specifically for dinner parties and other gatherings. Create a ring of cushions around a low table topped with a traditional hookah pipe for a relaxing experience that is truly Middle Eastern.
