Inspired by a Mediterranean colour palette.


We’re dreaming of colour palettes in sun-drenched warmer climates to incorporate into our homes this year. The Mediterranean, overflowing with glistening golden sands and deep blues, is the perfect place to look for some interior inspiration. Whereas the coastal or nautical home décor trends might conjure up images of beach huts or harbours found across the coastline closer to home, the Mediterranean style is built on European elegance: think fig trees, tangy lemons and tart oranges, and sparkling seas all enjoyed under the sun’s warm rays. Very different to the summer we’ve had so far!


Mediterranean home décor is influenced by traditional styles and modern design elements, creating an exciting blend of textures and vibrant colours. This playful style creates a home that’s positively brimming with personality and liveliness, which is ideal for shaking off any lingering winter décor.


One of the key features of a Mediterranean style is the gentle whitewashed buildings or gentle airy shades, which can be used in place of more frequently used neutrals such as taupe or stone. These reflect the heat from the region, as houses are influenced by indoor-outdoor living. While the UK’s weather may not always accommodate this free-flowing feel from indoor to garden space, we can create a similar feel through the use of these new neutrals. Pale blue is a great way to experiment with a slightly braver neutral shade, without drifting too far into colour.


By incorporating these new neutrals, you’ll be able to apply bolder colours or switch your usual hardware for more contrasting choices, without overwhelming your space. We put Sea Salt to the test this week on Moments, experimenting with different handles to see how this neutral shade best reflects the sunny Mediterranean vibe… head on over to Instagram to see which hardware works best!


Once you’ve decided on your new neutral, you’re ready to begin adding some vibrant shades—perfect for truly channelling the Mediterranean style. Which colours would you match Sea Salt with?
