Stir Some Romance Into Your Home With Mediterranean Lighting

Whether a design enthusiast or not, there’s no way you wouldn’t have heard about the Mediterranean design style at least once in your lifetime. And whenever you hear the word ‘Mediterranean’, your mind instantly visualises the breezy beaches, the vibrant and exotic coastal towns, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets and the enchanting landscape in and around the vast Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean decor pays homage to the same characteristics, and it came into existence to complement the achingly beautiful and mesmerising terrain of the gorgeous countryside. The Mediterranean region is a melting pot, and that can pretty much be said about the design style too. The Mediterranean style continues to draw inspiration from all the countries around the sea, be it Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Morocco and France too. The Mediterranean design style, or as it was called the ‘Mediterranean Revival’ style, originated back in the 1920s, and it continues to be one of the most sought-after design languages as it has a vibrant, calm and intimate appeal to it. 

If you’re looking for a relaxed yet elegant design style to go with for your home, then the Mediterranean style would just be the perfect pick for you. One important aspect of Mediterranean decor is the colour palette. You need to be very careful with the colours that you pick for your lighting designs, furnishings, home decor, walls and more. For the decorative elements like lighting, furnishings and home decor, it’s better to go with colours like rustic gold and different shades of greens and blues as they’re perfect for a textbook Mediterranean decor. And when it comes to colouring the backdrop, consider sticking to warm neutrals or standard neutral shades like white, ivory, cream, sand, grey and beige, as they can add an effortless stroke of elegance to your living space. 

Another important aspect of Mediterranean decor is the kind of materials that go into it. Sticking to natural elements goes a long way in adding that flair and flavour to your living space. Iron lighting designs can help you achieve just the look for your space, and you can also go with lighting designs that flaunt woven fabrics, ceramic, glass, rattan, jute, wood, stone and more. The nature of these materials, their composition, colour and texture are reminiscent of the breathtaking landscape of the Mediterranean, and they help create an atmosphere that is simply unmatched, evoking a myriad of moods and sensations. The White Teak Company brings to you a mindfully curated list of lighting ideas for each part of your home to turn your home into a Mediterranean paradise. 

A Sublime Coastal Touch For Your Living Room 

The idea of flaunting a Mediterranean-styled decor is reminiscing the sun-soaked and seaside locales and adding a warm yet relaxed touch to your living space. The living room is arguably the most important part of your home as it sets the tone of your entire living space. And being multi-functional in most cases, this is where families end up spending most of their at-home time. A vital aspect of the Mediterranean design style is achieving that symphony between the indoors and outdoors, and you need to flaunt the same in your living room. An abundance of natural light accentuates the expressive capacity of your living room. 

Start with a statement chandelier for the space and make it count. Focus on clean lines and creating a minimalistic lighting layout. Even though minimalism is a priority, try to make your lighting layout appear fuller by complementing the statement lighting with ambient lighting designs like table lamps, floor lamps and wall lights. You don’t have to go too much into the details with a Mediterranean lighting layout.

A Relaxed Yet Warm Touch For Your Dining Room

A dining room is the heart of your home in many ways, and it is important to illuminate the space the way it deserves to. Only for this particular space you need to focus on functionality as much as aesthetics. This familial space needs to be as uncluttered and as uncomplicated as possible. ‘Form-inspiring function’ needs to be your mantra here.

An overhead statement lighting design is recommended for this space too, as it can set the tone of your space and provide perfect illumination. At the least, you need a hanging light that illuminates the length of the dining table and enhances the functionality quotient of your dining space. Even in this space, you can use ambient lighting designs to complement the lighting layout. The dining room is one of the spaces where there’s an immense energy flow, and you can definitely accentuate that with significant use of natural materials and natural lighting in the space.

The bed is the centrepiece of this space, and the best thing to bring the best out of your bedroom is to hang a pendant light to exude that warm and comforting glow whenever you need it. For your quiet bedside reading sessions or to enhance the ambience of the room, you can go with a bedside table lamp or a bedside wall light.

A Lush Yet Vibrant Touch For Your Outdoors

A Mediterranean-inspired outdoor decor is the easiest to set up as it becomes way easier to incorporate natural elements into the space. Your outdoor oasis won’t need too much planning either if you already have a mild green cover in the space. The only time you’ll have to put a lot of thought into the decoration is when you decide on the focal points of the space.

For your outdoor space, both the aesthetics and the functionality of the area have to be taken into consideration. The lighting should provide apt illumination to the outdoor area but also lend safety to the occupants at all times. Like most other parts of your home, hanging light is the perfect lighting design to make your outdoor space visually rich. Not only does it create a ravishing focal point in the space, but it adds a warm and inviting feeling to the entire area. Focus on the seating space, especially your patio, deck, pergola, gazebo or whatever your space has, as the ambience here can really lend character to your outdoor space. Also, keep in mind the weathering factor, so it’s better to go with cast iron or wrought-iron lighting designs.
