Want to extend your vacation by the sea? We adopt the Mediterranean style in our accommodation. On the program: an ocean of blue and white cushions, a tide of rattan objects and a storm of seashells on the living room shelves. The Mediterranean takes hold of our interior to make it a true blue and white haven of peace with the smell of monoi and hot sand. Focus on our 22 tips for adopting the Mediterranean style in your decor.

18. A raw wooden bench
The Mediterranean decor gives pride of place to natural materials. Wood remains a safe bet. Choose authentic and rustic furniture like walnut or coniferous wood. As for the choice of furniture, the bench is a great ally to give a friendly touch specific to southern houses … Install it in the kitchen to arrange the dining area, in a living room as an extra seat or in an entrance hall to give character to space.
19. Linen linens
A refined material that is delicate to the touch, linen is widely acclaimed in Mediterranean-style interiors. It must be said, it has many advantages: natural and ecological, it is also an excellent thermoregulator. In summer, it turns out to be a sizeable antiperspirant and in winter, it retains heat. Opt for linen on your bed linen, on the curtains or on the sofa for maximum effect!
20. A jute rug
As you can see, natural materials are in the spotlight! To give character to your floor covering, opt for a plant fiber rug like this jute model. And for the touch of madness, choose a round and patterned rug! We also fall for the wall macramé, a bohemian accessory that can also be adopted for a Mediterranean decor.
21. A woven basket
Few of the Mediterranean houses do not have baskets and woven baskets in their decoration. To store throws and cushions near the sofa, as a guide for a plant pot or as simple decorative assets on a piece of furniture in the living room, there is always a use for woven baskets!
22. A straw hat
The straw hat evokes the heat of summer, the rays of the sun and the Provencal countryside. So why not make it a decorative asset? Hanging on the wall, the straw hat immediately sets the scene: here, it’s holidays all year round!
